You have just lifted my spirits as my hubby has gotten awful about remembering things and he is not on meds. He is just 60 and he can find his way home but his short term memory is awful. I was beginning to be very concerned and the PCP just blew it off when I mentioned it but you have given me some insight here.
I never put it together with the Crohn's. Thanks you for this thread.KItt
Ok, so yesterday I somehow managed to spill a bunch of coffee directly onto myself or onto my desk and either did not notice it or managed to completely forget about it. I was typing and I was suddenly like gee what's this with my sleeve being wet...did I somehow sweat so much it traveled to my elbow? Hmm it's cold <sniff> hey that's....coffee? When did I soak my entire top half of my sleeve in coffee? I'm pretty sure I spilled it on myself and just forgot about it since sometimes I get up to go to the bathroom down the hall, and if it's not an urgent trip due to D I often forget why I went into the hall! LOL
As far as having trouble with saying stuff and being like what did I just say or oh no how come I said that, happens all the time when I'm adjusting to being on prednisone. Gets worse if I start to get dehydrated from prednisone sweats or too many bathroom trips, I always know I should drink more when I can barely manage to say anything the way I want to ;)
