I hope this is the right place to post this thread! Anyway, I wanted to get a feel of the people looking at this on a particular problem/symptom I have had for a long time, and I really can not seem to get any good answers on this elsewhere: Cognitive functions.
I guess the best way for me to describe this problem is I have noticed over the course of the last say, 5 years I have had a slight, general lag in my coginitive skills/abilities. I am now 28 years old, male, and this problem I first began to notice was 23, but it didnt really become bothersome until I was about 25 or so. I have much more trouble with my memory, esp. short term (ie recalling phone numbers dictated, web sites, names, etc.)--I find im using a lot more lists to aide me.
Also, I have just this general feel of a "fog" sometimes, where I just cant concentrait or if I am writing, I will not be able to put together good sentence/paragraph structure as well as I had previously (say, 5 years ago).....kind of like my ability to write well has declined somewhat, just some. I have more trouble finding certain words sometimes too, as of more recently, even common words often---this can be a little embarrasing, esp. for someone my age.....
Its really hard to place this into words, but hopefully some people here reading this will be able to understand what I am saying, and maybe have eperienced this too.....I did explain this to a couple of doctors and neurologists, and none seemed really much concerned with this problem. I do have other physical symptoms of course (which are rather mild as of now, thank God), but I have ben able to find very little information on symptoms of this nature, though I do know they are somewhat common in persons with MS.....help!!!!
