    Wow, this foggy head of mine seems to be unrelenting.  Just wondering if others here take any meds that have helped with this issue or have suggestions other than rest?  My biggest issue seems to be a wall that goes up in my brain that keeps me from solving problems, adding numbers, remembering details from business calls, and just feeling like my head is cloudy.

    I'm wating to hear back from my neuro on this and have only been diagnosed w/ MS for just over a month, but symptoms can be tracked back 15 years or more.

    I was just diagnosed last week but have been fighting symptoms for 5 years.  I am sorry you are dealing with this but I am so happy to read that others have this same issue.  I used to remember everything and felt very smart but now I struggle and need to write everything down.  Very frustrating as you well know.  Thank you for your post.

    ah...the fog.  quite possibly the most frustrating thing for me thus far, followed by the optic neuritis...ugh!  I have to remind myself that I AM a very smart, very sharp and dependable person!  I didn't always have to use sticky notes, carry around a notepad in my purse or write down every. single. detail. of work related issues....Yes, I know that frustration!  If you find a way to clear the fog, please post about it!  I struggle and struggle to tread water each day when it comes to my memory and making sure that all my tasks are complete and correct.  I remember the day when I could spout off numbers and figures without hesitation....now i can't remember what it was that I went to the kitchen for.....

    If you find an answer let us know. I avoid danger  and do what ever I fell able to do. I watch the fog in the brain and wait for it to pass. Duh!

    My doctor tells me that sleep will help. He has me on Lorazepan, not only to help me get to sleep, but to keep from waking in the night with my head brimming with all of the things I need to remember or do the next day. So far, it seems to be working. A lower dose is nice, because I can always take another without feeling groggy in the morning.

    I'm going to ask my doctor about Lorazepan on my next visit, thanks for the tip!

    Great suggestion on dealing w/ the fatique!  Sleeping is not a problem for me I may give the sticky notes a try.

    I finally heard back from my neuro who is suggesting Provigil as needed for "fatigue and cognitive difficulty".  It's certainly worth trying.  Just thought I'd share.  Will let you know if it helps.
