I am really being messed up by my utter failure of a memory. It takes a lot for me to remember something and sometimes I can't even recall it 2 months down the line. Does anyone else has any memory problems?

Sorry, what did you say? I've forgotten.

That's only half a joke. I forget things 2 minutes later, never mind 2 months later. Nothing to do with Remicade either: I am on it as it so happens, but I was like that before the Remicade.

I personally think its more related to our disease than meds. Although I know my pain meds can make me a little forgetful at times, plus I have fibromyalgia too and get the famous fibro fog. Hugs!

I have a very bad memory but if I remember correctly it predated Remicade. Don't know if it is disease related but it is very frustrating. Could it be your age???

Indeed it should not be age then BUT I do recall at least in school being unable to recall anything in certain subjects that I didn't like but having amazing recall in the sciences. Even today at age over 50 I have this trouble. I want to learn US history but after FORCING myself to read books I remember nearly nothing. I think it might be some type of attention deficit disorder but I don't know. Organizatonal skills might help but organization is a four letter word in my mind lol

JoeFalcon, Have you lost a lot of weight? Poor nutrition really messes with memory and ability to concentrate. Sorry you are going through all of this!
