Memory & Thinking

Recent research suggests cognitive difficulties affect approximately 50-60% of people with multiple sclerosis. For example, many people with MS can find it harder to recall information, follow conversations or think things through. For most people with MS, cognition issues remain relatively mild although they can still cause difficulties in daily life.
