Hello, I'm an 18 year old male, just starting out college. Today, I was walking with my friend, and she asks me why I said a statement. Unfortunately I had no idea what she was talking about. Apparently, I said something a few minutes prior. I remember walking down the stairs of the library, talking about a guy writing Chinese. Then supposedly, I said, "I am happiest in my dorm." (which is completely false and absurdly random). Then immediately, I started talking about my backpack (which i remember). So... I ended up losing 10 - 15 seconds of my life, not recalling any of it.
Now normally, I would probably ignore something like this, but after my friend pointed this out, I remembered another instance of spacing out. It was last Monday, and I was watching The Hangover with some friends. The following day, something popped up in a conversation and they ended up asking me if "The Hangover really was my first R - rated movie." I said no and was quite confused. Then they brought up that I said something to the effect of "Yay! My first R - rated movie" right before the movie started. I have absolutely no recollection of saying anything like that whatsoever. Again, I lost a piece of my life.
The question is why? For some reason, I forgot two unrelated events. When I pursued the topic of memory loss later with my friends (different ones in the movie/library), they told me I was acting completely normal, and it was definitely not a prank. They were certain I said those things.
I am completely healthy for the most part. Although, I was drinking Friday night, but the second memory lapse occurred on Sunday afternoon, and the first was before it. I never drank before that. I don't take any medications or drugs. I don't smoke and I'm relatively fit. And most of my classes haven't given any homework so I'm not stressed out. I don't think I'm exposed to toxins, my diet hasn't changed, etc.
Anyone have any idea what I may have? I'm going to go to a doctor later if I experience another episode. Just want some sort a heads up.
P.S. I'll answer any other questions. Just want this figured out.
