I am new here and I know just what u mean abt the verbal stuff. I believe that I have been a fairly educated person and although I'm not working currently I don't feel that I'm ignorant. But...having sd that, I have been having terrible issues in the memory dept! I go to speak and right in the middle of my sentence, I forget a word....a word I have probably used a thousand times before...but it just won't come out. I feel so very stupid at times that I just don't talk becuz I'm afraid this will happen while I'm talking...lol. My Rheumy referred me for an EEG, and they found some lesions, but the doc that did it sd he was mainly concerned abt ruling out MS and did not feel that this was the case. He felt that it was prob fr my Lupus and that was that! It seems to be getting worse, and at times I think maybe it's becuz I'm not working.....using my brain??
IDK.... I hope you get some answers but maybe u could possibly just drop the word EEG to your doc? Possibly give u some peace of mind? I think I'm going to try and do some crossword puzzles or something to get that gerbil running on that wheel in my head!! Best of luck to you;)
