Re: cognitive impairment with amnestic component

Chirp2,
I have systemic lupus and it developed into CNS lupus, I have problems everyday with neuropathy, numbness and tingling, and the memory loss is borderline scary. I had countless MRI's and EEG's and everything always came back normal. It took a long time for the doctors to recognize that it was moving into my central nervous system because all my tests kept coming back fine. No matter what trust how you're feeling and don't let them write it off as depression if you're not depressed. The tests aren't always right and you know your body better than anybody else. If it is something more serious than depression related memory loss, you'll want to nip it in the bud as soon as you can. I'm so sorry you're going through this and hope you start feeling better and getting answers soon. All the best.
-Erica
