I'm not in the midst of an exacerbation (I assume) but I notice my memory and ability to think of things is worse. What I mean is that for example, I'm in a meeting talking about a database system, I'm asked how I use the system, I name some functions but somehow I 'forget' to remember a major way in which I use the database! Another example: talking with my doctor about pending foot surgery. I'm asking him all kinds of questions, he asks if I have any more, I say no. Then he launches into all the risks of the surgery. How did I 'forget' to ask that?!?!? I have a million examples of me just not understanding something and having to be reminded or asked about something I already know!
I know cognition problems are typical and although I don't think I'm having an exacerbation, maybe I actually am????? I don't know.
I will be seeing my neurologist but want to know if anyone has had success with treatments that help your cognitive function? If so, what are you using/taking?
