I am so sorry you are having these issues. I understand and have them pretty bad myself. It is tough to function during the day and it even gets a little embarrassing on my end but you are right, if you go at it with confidence people will forgive and forget the silliness we have when it comes to our brain fog
The worst is forgetting words when you are talking.......this happens to me and it is very hard. I am an accountant and there are times it has affected my ability to even do my simple bookkeeping jobs. Lately I have been putting things in weird places. I have put the milk in the cupboard and ice in the fridge......it goes on and on!!!!!!!!!! Tim is great with it and most of the time he helps me laugh at all of it. Still, it is very hard. My brain fog has affected my balance and at times I will just fall over. I think Gumbi takes over my body during those episodes
I have a couple of questions for you.......how are you sleeping at night??????? You said you get dizzy headaches, have they looked into vertigo???????? I also don't understand that if you are having an increase in these symptoms and you lab work shows something, why won't they give you and MRI???????
I really think they need to look at your brain. They probably won't find anything and they will just put it in your file as another symptom but, for peace of mind, they need to just look. It will make you feel better and you never know, maybe a little change in medication can help. Remember, you are your only advocate when it comes to managing your disease and if you want them to look into this more, call them and get in soon and push it until they don't have another choice.
Just hang in there love and remember, we are all here for you and we will help you get through this. I am sending you healing thoughts and gentle hugs to get you through the night
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
