I am Doctor Thomas, double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine. I will start by asking you a question or by giving you an answer based on your information provided so far. I will be here to follow up with any further questions or concerns you might have.

One an not make a diagnosis son this basis. He would need a medical exam and testing.
What you describe, just as an example, might be the effects of undiagnosed hypothyroidism.
Many people are bad at remembering names.
I don't know what you mean by recreational drug use, but certain drugs are associated with cognitive dysfunction, benzodiazapines, alcohol, and others.
There are a number of personlaity disorders, but being highly sexual, using fantasy and using recreational drugs do not constitute the criteria for any specific personality disorder.

If you think there is a problem as a couple you can both seek evaluation. If he thinks he has a problem, he can start with his doctor.
