I'm sorry you're feeling the fog right now. It can be very upsetting when the brain quits doing it's normal job. I have experienced it first-hand -- I was getting so confused I wasn't safe to drive and couldn't really carry on a conversation. Work and normal life were definitely out of the question.
My MRI didn't show anything, so I guess that's why I wasn't referred to a neurologist. Instead I was started on a course of Cellcept which has really been a miracle drug for me. My thinking is now back to about
85% normal -- I may never be able to resume my career at the same level, but I can function and think clearly.
I hope your fog is just part of a temporary flare and that things get back to normal soon -- I did have some periods like that before the cognitive dysfunction got really bad. Of course, if the fog and the leg weakness are related, that would be totally different than what's happened with me.
I hope your doctors are able to get to the bottom of things and get you appropriate (and productive) treatment soon,
