calypso Posted January 19, 2005 Report Share Posted January 19, 2005 I forgot to mention this in my last post, so thought I'd make this a separate topic. I remember reading something in the past about others here having cognitive troubles due to POTS. Surprise -- I can't remember when or what it was that I read; I think it was here.That's exactly my problem lately -- I can remember bits and pieces of stuff but not the whole. Example: My husband said to me the other day, "I can't find my gloves." I spent 10 minutes helping him look for them, then told him I thought he left them at his grandmother's nursing home a few hours earlier. We were on our way there when I suddenly remembered I put them in my daughter's diaper bag.I also spent the whole week complaining about how I thought my co-worker who shares my massage therapy office had taken my sheets by accident, then found them in a closet in my house. I remembered after finding them that I put them there last week, so I guess that's better than not remembering at all ... but what I jerk I am for thinking someone had taken them!This may not sound horrible, but it's very atypical for me. I tend to have a photographic memory. I also have trouble multitasking (I have to concentrate VERY HARD to comprehend when reading or watching something on TV, etc.). I am seriously getting worried about this because I am a copy editor part time, and my job is to read stories for errors, and I am afraid that not being able to concentrate very well and having a poor memory is making me slower and less efficient (both definite no-nos in this biz).On the other hand, I am not so dysfunctional that I need to stop working. I refuse to have an MRI or testing done, but am just wondering if these kinds of things are typical of POTS. To what degree do you all have cognitive difficulties? Does anything help?Thanks,Amy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
