My mom thinks that she forgets things like whether she has put salt in the food, where she had kept her glasses. She is a housewife and is very active. She had met with an accident in Oct 2015 wherein she had to get operated on her right leg. She had suffered minor gash on her forehead. Off lately she has started complaining about dizziness when she wakes up in the morning and sometimes during the day. Please suggest what should I do
