Can PTSD/head injury/medication leave you unable to read a map/park a car

Nine years ago my husband had a head injury. However he was in hospital and they found out that everything was alright, no serious injuries.
He has also been on medication (SSRI medication + Mirtazapine).

My husband noticed something unusual: When he is tired he is sometimes unable to read a map but has to hold it upside down (in case he is driving south). It doesn’t really matter to him and we now have a TomTom but he thought it was odd.
Also he has lost parts of his ability to park a car.
Again it’s not important for him but it’s rather odd... because both are things that he used to excel at.

@Eagle12345,
Wouldn't shock me. But get him to his primary care physician to be sure, and to check for things like early onset Alzheimer's.
