Memory Function and Parkinson's

Posted on March 12, 2018

Forgetting words during mid-conversation or not remembering an event that recently took place is known as "Brain Fog," a common symptom for those with Parkinson's disease. Getting social support from others who know what you are going through is a great way to learn strategies for managing memory function.

On MyParkinsonsTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with Parkinson's disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Memory function is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

I'm having memory problems when talking. Anyone else experiencing this too?

How did you find out that you had Parkinson's disease?

Do any of you have big extremes between being "on" and "off" what do you do when you are "off"? sit and wait?

Can you relate?
