I have recently been diagnosed with MS. I am unsure what type as MS nurse says they need to watch and see. In any case, I think my major problem with this disease is cognitive dysfunction. I have problem remembering people and places, I have very reduced attention span and I have problems with my thought processes - in that I can’t grasp the thought in its entirety though I have a strange feeling that I can imagine the thought but it remains elusive. Hope that makes sense to someone. I am convinced that my main problem with MS is cognitive rather than physical. I do have a deficit in my left side, with constant pain in my shoulder. However this does not bother me as much as the problems with cognition. Does anyone have these symptoms? .
