From my question !!!!!!!!!!

what is wrong with me ????


You are most likely having what is called as transient global amnesia.
In this condition a person, for a few seconds or minutes cannot remember things and then after sometime they are back to normal and their memory is restored.
This condition is harmless in the sense that its not life threatening.

Having said that, I would still like that you should visit a neurologist to make sure other causes are ruled out.
Let me know if you have more questions
