Hello, folks. I have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I know that this disease can lead to physical disability.

Hi, there. Cognitive dysfunctions are possible within people with MS. And they are common. About 50% of people with this disease have these problems. These problems are related to memory, planning, judging and foresight. Minor defects in cognition are common for even 70% of MS patients. Usually, these abnormalities are subtle, so you don’t need to worry a lot. You should about all these issues with your neurologist. I hope everything will be fine. Bye!

Hello, folks. My friend has MS, so I have read something about this disease. Cognitive difficulties are quite common for these patients. There are defects in memory, abstraction, attention and word finding. They can be associated with emotional lability. There is also decreased speed of information processing. Transporting memories to the conscious part can be impaired since they are transported via myelinated nerves. This makes difficulties with concentrating and reasoning. You should really consult your neurologist. Bye!

Hi to everyone. People with MS can have minor problems with cognitive functions. In this case, they are aware of this problem. However, there are also severe cognitive dysfunctions. In this case, people don’t have a clear insight in their problem. This form of MS is also known as cerebral MS. These people can have real manic-depression (bipolar disorder). They can also suffer from reactive depression. I hope anything of these things won’t be your problem. Good luck!
