I wanted to query something on here.
At the moment I'm on 60mg Morphgesic twice a day (low dose by choice ) but also have both 2mg and 5mg Diazapem for muscle spasms and Oramorph for breakthrough pain.
I used to have an eidetic memory but now can only "clearly" remember things from years ago.
Now if someone makes an appointment over the phone with me, I have to get them to repeat it three or four times while I write it down.
My doctor tested me (which I found most frustrating and upsetting) but he thinks should return once I stop the pain relief completely (which will never happen).
Is he right? Or coud something else be causing it?
* osteoarthritis in all main joints
* Raynauds in my hands and feet
* Just found out that I' ve been borderline diabetic for almost two years (to much sugar
* still waiting on a lumbar andc ccervical MRI to find out what's gone wrong with them
*then about three weeks ago was told "itshighly likely I have MS. So waiting to see a neurologist and have a scan to find out.
If the memory issues had started now, at least I could put it down to stress, but the lack of short term memory has been has been going on for some time.
Does this happen to anyone else?
And will my memory ever come back?
Thanks (in advance)
