I'm worried about my memory and scattiness

I'm in tears right now because I've lost my wallet - trouble is this is the third time in just over two weeks and I've other worrying things going on with my memory.
I'm 43 and it could just be middle aged memory loss, I've done dementia tests on line and I get a non Dementia result, but I feel things are declining noticeably.
I'm often forgetful, can't remember why I'm in a room I've walked into, can't remember the names of friends children etc. I leave the oven on, left my key in the car ignition the other day. My conversation skills are also markedly sluggish. My brain can't keep up and I forget the names of tv programmes / bands I like that sort of thing when I'm taking with other adults. I am a SAHM to two ASD children so I'm a bit stressed sometimes but sleep is ok.
Should I see a doctor?

Sounds like a good idea re doc, at least to put your mind to rest, if nothing else. Stress makes me a bit like this though.
