Are there treatments for executive attention skills diminishing? Multi-tasking is difficult, and I am easily distracted, which is disturbing for a variety of reasons let alone work.
Good morning, DC.
Cognitive issues are a pretty common symptom of MS. We have some great information on our website, and a booklet that might be helpful to you. Here are some links:
Solving Cognitive Problems
Hope those are helpful to you! Have you discussed this with your doctor yet?
This website has a fairly comprehensive list of research and therapies for cognitive issues in MS. Sponsored by UK government. http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseaction/show/pageid/1264
I was told to do alot of reading and stay active with hand eye cornation.
My doctor put me on a couple of Alzheimer's medications to help. I'm not sure how it does, but I think I'm better, I don't seem to lose as many words now.
I've also been trying http://www.lumosity.com.
I am fortunate to be able to go to the VA hospital for cognitive rehabilitation. I have a TBI (traumatic brain injury) as well as MS. I go once a week and I find it helpful. We work on compensating strategies and using technology to replace what's missing.
Thank you Jess. I have talked to my dr, I also just received the results of a neuro psych text, while not bad, I have definitely slipped in one area.
