Stupid Memory!
« on: Oct 06 2010, 08:17 PM »
I was wondering if anyone else finds that during a vertigo episode their memory goes funny? I keep forgetting things and i'm getting annoyed! I have everything written down on bits of paper.

I wanted to know if its to do with the MD or just that i'm getting old!

Hi Emma,
Generally known as Brain Fog. This is definitely part of MD and affects many of us.

Definitely, and leaves you feeling such a fool, especially at work. Also have difficulty processing information which can leave you looking pretty stupid. And I even have trouble with speech words come out completely muddled! verbal dyslexia!

Hi Emma,
Try reading

http://www.theblackriver.net/wobbler/wobblercognitive.html

then print some of it out for your mum.


If you search under 'cognitive aspects of vestibular disorders 'you will find lots of papers about this.

Hope this helps convince her.

I'm always forgetting words these days - even when I'm not feeling bad.  (And I'm a writer!)   Oh, dear...   Jeannette

That accounts for my intermittent stutter and my head saying one word and my mouth another
