Hi, I have had the problems listed since I inherited it from my Mother. At 81 yrs. of age I have been through most of all the terrible things we live thru. My reason for posting is Fibro Fog & Brain Fog (CFS). In Jan. 2017 my left leg buckled & I fell ending up in the hospital. They did an MRI on my head & found that it is damaged. It showed I had several minor mini-strokes & 2 others that were worse. The other damage was to my cognitive thinking that is now known as cognitive dysfunction. I no longer think correctly, forget most things, lost my ability to spell, remember words, do math, etc. Having a conversation on the phone is still okay or at least the person I am speaking to says that I’m doing okay. When I hang up the phone I forget most of the conversation. I worked as a cashier, accountant, bookkeeping, almost anything to do with math for 31yrs. Now I have to count on my fingers for simple things or use a calculator that I’m forgetting how to use. When I came home from the hospital my son went to the doctor with me. At that time the doctor explained all that had happened to my head but I did not remember one iota of that conversation. My Dr. brought it up on my monthly visit two months ago. She was reminding me of my damaged brain. So I’m wondering why it took so long to tell me but after talking to my son he told me about her relating all that to me in Jan.2017. Enough for now, just wondering if anyone else is going through this & can share their experience. Thanks.
