I haven't been able to ask my primary doc yet but my memory is also an issue. I used to joke that your memory is in your butt. You get up to do something and forget why you got up. When you sit back down you remember what it was. Wouldn't that make you think your memory is in your butt!?
Seriously though, if Spondilis affects nerves wouldn't that stop the messages the damaged nerves send to the brain? Just a thought. That's one of the main reasons I'm trying to get in to see a neurologist
Wishing you a low or no pain day. 🙃
