Yesterday I went for a routine blood tested (because of being on Rebif) and whilst there the nurse announced that a warning had flashed up on my records that I was to me monitored for early signs of dementia.
Needless to say I was a bit taken aback, I am only 32 and don’t plan on loosing my marbles just yet!
I did ask the nurse this was something new as it had never been mentioned before and she just said I must be in a high(er) risk category due to MS (to be honest she didn’t sound sure) and that I would have to ask my MS nurse.
I’m not sure if she meant I was more at risk of developing Alzheimer’s or similar (sorry I’m not very up on dementia) or whether they are just keeping an eye out for milder cognitive difficulties.
Has anyone else been told this?
