memory loss at mid 30s old no injuries

I had no head injuries, around 2 years back I noticed more or less sudden loss of memory and general loosing track of almost everything in my life

-short term memory was decreased - for a healthy person it feels the same as just being introduced to 5 new people and forgetting their names minute after
-recalling things take longer time than it used to be
-drop of sex drive a little bit, I can still perform couple of times a day just I can much easier forget about it for a week or month, almost no instant erections, in general feeling decreased sex drive later throughout the day
-loosing sense of time very easily
-loosing track of a current day in a week
-loosing track of conversations from yesterday or sometimes forgetting things from the current conversation
-more prone to reckless or impulsive behavior by getting carried away way too easily by everything
-feelings in general lack depth, sometimes it feels like brain is locked up inside the head and doesnt accept common depth of taste or excitement
-tv and movies doesnt keep you in the moment
-exercise - lack of any feeling after workout, no endorphin rushes anymore
-coffee doesnt give that happy feeling anymore.
-no higher feelings towards opposite sex anymore, interest doesnt build up that easily as it was earlier
-not sure but seems like some skin injuries recover more slowly
-3-4 days after workout muscles get tired back again as with months without training
-teeth pain gives me head pains too
-I get stressed more easily but my whole life was stressful, feelings of luck and accomplishment doesnt last long
-Workout effects doesnt make me feel any way stronger I don't feel jumpy fresh happy or anything thats strong, actually I feel like an old man.
-I sleep mostly throughout whole night, the problem it is not that uncommon to wake up tired or having drowsiness feelings throughout the day
-I sometimes feel pukey feeling in the morning around 5am

I don't take drugs at all, I don't even drink alcohol. It was worst at the beginning, after heavy medicating with piracetam variations got some decent progress but still some issues persist. I often stay away from sugar and beveraged drinks. I drink coffee without milk most of the time, I use lactose-free products whenever I can.

I did took one year peg int 2 alpha therapy but that was already one year after start of the problems with memory

The tests that I took:
-neurologist suggested metabolic disease due to hepatitis b infection (fibrosis is around 5 percent mostly measured), disputed by all hepatitis liver doctors
-shrink said she couldnt diagnose it
-neuro-psychologist said it looks similar to depression and anhedonia, some memory results were superb, some below average
-MRI of the head shown nothing unusual
-EEG shown very dominant theta waves with very very rare sporadic lower alpha waves
-thyroid ok, neck blood flow also ok
-one doctor diagnosed IBS, other could not confirm it
-blood pressure in general often close to 120/90
-sugar in blood at lower levels (60-70)
-some issues (cracking sounds or pain) in knees 2-5 months after ending peg-int 2alpha therapy
-there might be some issues with kidneys (one elevated sample)
-I don't have an active lifestyle, sit behind desk all day or lie down or walk. I work out mostly 3 days during week for up to 40 minutes max I guess.
-some untreated teeth problems
-took on around 5-6 kg overweight through the process

Can anyone suggest a possible disease or additional tests to rule-out/check?
