I am truly grateful to have a loving (and lovely) family, good friends, a nice home and full mobility. But I would so love to be symptom free. Apart from being very depressing it all makes me feel sooooo tired!
I thought that I was on the upward trail a couple of weeks ago but WHAMMO its all back again this week, and the headache is a real bitch of one.
I think that I will have to try and get an appointment to see a neurologist again if things don't settle down.
I just wish I was a bear!

Yes, my memory is slowly but surely getting worse! My consultant says that there are no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's disease so what is happening? It must be due either to Feckit or the radiology is all I can think.
I am unable to memorise the names of bowlers that I play regularly with once or twice a week;
I am unable to remember certain events that happened in our lives when John talks about them, and this is happening more and more frequently;
I have had 'conversations' with different groups of people via private messages on Facebook, or with friends/family via email, and have no recollection of having done so.
It is frightening and very upsetting!
Added to this forgetting words, mostly proper nouns, in the middle of a sentence is making conversation a bit of a trial. Talking with friends is bearable because they are used to me going silent and waving my hands around! But it is so very embarassing when talking with strangers or people I do not know well ...... they must think I am a very strange woman indeed!
And yes the headaches, nausea and facial tingling are still going on, but at least I get some days when I feel fairly normal. But have had no more Trigeminal Neuralgia - thanks to Tegretol tabs!
But onwards and upwards, as they say ........... now what is it that I have forgotten .........
