Cognition and thinking problems in MS

28 November 2022

This time on Multiple sclerosis breaking it down, we’ll be talking about thinking problems in MS. Problems with thinking and memory affect around half of all people with MS. Cognition is the medical term for thinking, and problems with thought and memory are known as cognitive problems. Issues include memory, attention span, planning, decision-making, understanding or concentration.
