Some people with multiple sclerosis (MS) may experience a loss of some of their mental abilities as their disease progresses, if damage owing to MS occurs in certain parts of the brain. People may be affected to different degrees, and in different ways, over a period of time. The mental abilities most likely to be affected are memory, concentration and problem solving. There may also be emotional problems, such as mood swings. The term 'dementia' is not generally used in association with multiple sclerosis because the decline is not usually as severe as it is in other forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease. It is more usual to describe the person as 'experiencing cognitive difficulties'.
