Cognitive problems

I was having memory and confusion problems for about 2 months. I would repeatedly forget thoughts over and over, I forgot names of pets, I was confused about where I was driving once. It seems to have improved. Can these issues come and go?

  1. , these issues can definitely come and go, but if you haven't done so already, I would definitely talk to your doctor about what you are experiencing. Whether your memory lapses are due to MS, being of a certain age, or something else entirely, it would be a good to get the issue checked out, just to be safe.

    1. Yes. I am getting an EEG and neuro cognitive testing. Strange how it was bad now it's subsided.

      1. , that's good! I know it's weird how one day/week/month, your brain is just not firing on all cylinders and then it seems to snap back to "normal". And when you're back in the "normal" zone, you kind of dread if the cognitive issues will return! It's definitely hard!

      2. yes. You never know what the day will bring.

    2. - sorry to hear about this. My memory and confusion problems come and go - i I think it is a combination of MS and age

      1. thank you. Good to know.
