    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    IS it possible that our AEDs slow us down?

    it is imposible for me to think fast adn and caorrectly.

    My husband will ask me to do something and i either forget or can not do it very fast.

    I feel as if everything has slowed me down alot.

    Can they do that?

    Slow the brain down, so you slow down.

    I can not think fast either and have to think in a differently. My thought process is very slow. I have to ask people to repeat what they said or ask them to keep it simple s t upid so I can understand what the yare saying.

    My TMJ doc says things so fast I can nit understand him and get all confused.

    he asks about my meds and things like that I wtie it down for my sake and his sake and he still goes on confusing me.

    My neurologist says htinkgs the right way adn I can understand mim extremly well.

    But I am in PHX for now becuase on the 4th of enxt month I have to be dicussing surgery for my right ankle. PT failed so that is what is left.

    Yes! Meds have that affect! Plus, my ability to understand some people & not others. Talking Fast goes over my Head. I hate it when that happens when I am watching a Show I like. Can't rewind to be sure I heard them Rite!

    Love Candi

    Good Luck w/ the Surgery.
