    Default Forgetfulness?

    is forgetfulness a common symptom of lupus? my neurologist said my horrible memory may be from stress so he increased my anti anxiety pills which have yet to help after a month.

    im talking pretty bad here. i loose my car if i dont park in the same spot at school everyday, i cant remember how to get home from simple places like work or the mall (which i frequent) and i forget what was said 2 minutes ago unless it was something that has been repeated many times.

    its getting to be a major pain in my backside. i feel like a total idiot half the time. :?

    anything that could help or ideas?
