What could cause memory loss over the past 6 days?
I was discharged from the ER today because I was super confused/disoriented. I sent a couple of messages 2 days ago that say "sorry! I'm so confused/feel weird! What are we talking about?" & I remember asking my boyfriend questions (I believe at the hospital but maybe before) & he'd say we just spoke about this. My mom picked me up & we spoke about things that happened 2 days ago which I remember bits of, but then we spoke about something that happened 6 days ago which I have absolutely no recollection of & so I believe my memory over the past 6 days or so has been super foggy and a good amount has been lost. My mom said it could be a short term memory problem but I'm hesitant to agree since I'm not experiencing anything like that now (besides the lost past 6 days).
I'm diabetic, take Zoloft on/off (I already am pretty forgetful) but not on any medication that should affect memory. I thought maybe I was dehydrated 2 days ago since I had a headache/dark urine at the hospital, but online I don't see too much on hydration/memory. My blood glucose meter shows 10 low blood sugar readings in the spam of an hour (I'm guessing I kept forgetting) & showed extreme highs/lows over the past 3 days. I got a CT scan/other tests & they didn't find anything wrong with my brain or any reason why this may have happened. I believe a doctor at the hospital said it could be the on/off Zoloft but I wasn't in the best place when we were talking about it. Any thoughts/speculations?

No idea, Could be a fluke. Maybe keep an eye out for if it happens again.
