My long term memory is horrible. Fmaily and friend will talk about things from my childhood and I have no memory. Sometimes they can trigger a memory for me but for the most part I can only remember bites and pieces and not very far back in years. Does anyone know if this is linked to FM? When people refer to fibrofog are they referring to short term memory? I have trouble w/ short term and long term. If it is linked will my long term memory come back when the phosphate clears? Thanks, j.
