I've lost my keys (in the house) about 5 days out of 7 this week blush I've also been feeling disorientated and confused quite a bit too as well as emotional at times. I'm only 23 but have an extremely busy life atm. Would you suggest I see a doctor or do you think this could just pass and I'm a bit stressed?

Could be stress and having so much on your mind that you do not notice what you are doing with your stuff. Will the busy period last long? Is there anything you could take off your plate, or postpone etc? Or take some dsys off? Certainly sound like you are hitting the max your system can take. A visit to the GP would help to rule out a physical cause like vitamin deficiency etc.
When I am stressed I start doing stuff like that too. It is a real signal to me, I could literally make a cup of tea, then make another one 5 mins later forgetting I already made it because my mind is do pre occupied.
