Hi @maxined and welcome.

Unfortunately, cognitive difficulties are a common symptom. There’s some detail here :-

Hi, I can totally empathise. Short on help but my memory is pretty bad. I dread the words “what did you do at the weekend? Errrrr. I need prompts and then I remember everything. My cognitive impairment is my biggest concern tbh. My husband says Ive changed since I started meds. But is it just MS? Or everything? Keep a diary to see if it worsens perhaps? It can be embarassing for sure.

FYI, my meds are not for MS per se

My speech therapist said when your mind won’t let you a peek the Word you want to deal it is ok to use a word that has same or similar meaning. Ex.word attractive can become pretty or we put together. #well put together. Can become pretty or beautiful etc. That is word memory. Jotting down notes helps me with task etc
Hope this is helpful
