All the Ritalin in the world doesn't help with cog fog; the only thing it does is give me the energy to hammer through and try to find answers, even though I have virtually no short term memory.
I demanded an MRV from my Neuro (who has been great help in giving me the tests I want but not in helping me find a cause to my cognitive problems). He said, verbatim, 'asymmetric transverse sinus and jugular noted, but not of concern'. I wanted to get a few opinions from those who have been diagnosed MS or who have CCSVI to see if my pictures resemble something they have seen with their own.
My symptoms are: chronic brain fog (no short term memory, inability to focus, no concentration, imagination), chronic fatigue, blurry vision, derealization (feels like I'm living in a dream and nothing is real), dizziness, mental confusion, cannot comprehend or get a feeling of time/space, no depth perception, and the list goes on... The biggest problem is brain fog, chronic fatigue, and no visual/audio memory. I can't ever get songs stuck in my head, I can't imagine objects in my mind, and I can't plan/organize anything because I can't visualize what I want or have the memory to do it with. I am so frustrated it's not funny...
Thank you so much for reading. I was close to suicide today but after finding this forum I have at least some hope. I don't want to quit fighting but some days I wake up and completely forget I have a problem, and only after I get a sense of living in a dream do I remember I have to fight another day to regain my sanity/mental clarity.
