My brain function did go downhill fairly early after my diagnosis. But Cellcept was my 'miracle drug' that brought things back to normal, including my memory. I haven't really noticed that I have forgotten things forever (but would I notice?) and my cognitive function is much closer to normal now.
If things have changed rapidly in this area please schedule with your Rhuemy and get the issue addressed. For me this was a big flare that involved my brain and didn't cause too many other symptoms. I did spend a little over a year not driving as I just wasn't safe.
Hang in there, and visit the doc!
