Memory Loss and Spondylitis

Posted on March 14, 2018

People with spondylitis often experience pain or stiffness in the lower back or spine. Dealing with pain can be exhausting and sometimes finding the right words or forgetting simple tasks are happening more frequently. Memory loss or brain fog is common and found among people with spondylitis. Managing memory loss is best done alongside others with spondylitis who understand what you are going through.

On MySpondylitisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with axSpA and other types of spondylitis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Memory is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here is a question-and-answer thread about memory:

Does anyone else experience worsening memory?

Here are some conversations about memory:

Has anyone else had memory problems? I had trouble speaking...

I haven't been feeling all that well, I have pain in my arms, across my upper back, chest, and shoulders, daily headaches, and a foggy memory.

A lot of brain fog today as well for some reason. Very tired but barely did anything.

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MySpondylitisTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
