Dr. John Gillespie
Ophthalmology
In brief: Stroke or TIA
Brain fog is a description of the results of stroke and the loss of the ability to remember things involves the outer cortex of the brain.
Seek evaluation from a neurologist to identify the cause of the initial stroke before you have another.
