Hi everyone, a few of you will have read my tales before of my left sided numbness and weakness. Have a look under my username if you’re interested. Well, I’ve been reading on here about “brain fog” and wondered what it really means and whether something I’ve experienced recently is similar?
There have been a few times recently when I’ve totally missed a couple of minutes. Scarily, it’s happened when I’ve been driving to and from work. I’ve continued to drive (maybe on autopilot) and not go into any accidents, but I’ll realise that I honestly don’t remember the last 2-3 minutes of my journey. As hard as I think about what I’ve seen and been past in that time, I just cannot remember. Like I remember being at one point and then I’m somewhere a couple of miles down the road and just do not know what happened along the way! It’s been a little disconcerting but I’ve just put it down to being distracted or tired. Just to say, when I also try to think if I’ve been day dreaming or thinking about something particular, I just don’t remember. Like those few minutes are just a blank.
I’ve found it once or twice when not driving too. It’s not often and and it’s not happened much yet, but just wondered if it’s something anyone can relate to or whether it’s just me being a “contrary mary”!
Still waiting for my neurologist appointment. 6 weeks since the referral was done. The weakness in my arm improved at first on the amitriptyline but has come back a bit now (not as bad as it was) and now having trouble with a weak foot with possible slight foot drop. I shall continue to wait!
Thanks in advance for any advice.
