I'm still on an early journey here with PMR diagnosis July and now on tapering pred.
I know there are others with far worse problems and my heart goes out to them, but I don't know where else to ask and get an honest answer.
I'm usually fairly quick witted; literally and in terms of understanding. Really struggling with fatigue. Tried to explain to GP that it's like living in and wading through physical sludge. Daily. She nodded with her 'understand but can't help' head.
That's bad enough, but now I'm wondering if mental capacity is affected by pred. Difficulty concentrating, even though I've little pain now, but worse, I struggled yesterday to understand the difference between diced and sliced. An onion, should have finely sliced but I chopped it up and couldn't get my head round the difference. I know the difference and it suddenly dropped into place today. My head just feels scrambled. I know I'm tired; not sleeping well but this is new within the last month, so I'm attributing to pred effect. Any thoughts please?
