Have you used any illegal drugs, alcohol or overdosed on medications? Are you currently on medications? Have you had any physical brain injury, even something as simple as a concussion or a large bash to the head even if you didn't go unconscious?

I can think of a few possible disorders, however, each sound unlikely. My recommendation is to see a doctor and get some brain imaging scans (probably an EEG, MRI/PET or if you're lucky, fMRI).

Other than this sudden amnesia, can you describe yourself, your functioning by yourself and with others, etc...?

ADHD is not just being forgetful. It's a wide range of symptoms.

Go see a doctor about this.

hmm youre probably right. well i'm just a normal guy though. i might of exagerated though. i don't really have legit amnesia but i'm just like where am i?? i definatly can have ADD because i can't focus on anything and i can't finish a huge project after i started one.

That could be a number of disorders, though. Not just ADHD. You'll need to get it checked out with a professional.
