It happens to everyone, a missing word or phrase, a name of a familiar object or place. It makes you feel disconnected from your own brain…and out of sync with the people around you. But for some of us, it's more than the occasional memory stumble. It's not uncommon for people with multiple sclerosis to complain of losing focus, getting lost or having problems remembering things.
Much can be done to reduce the impact of this. In this "Hold that Thought! Cognition and MS" video program, experts and people with MS confer together about strategies that help manage cognitive issues and maximize your abilities.
