Hello! Recently I have been more forgetful and it's increasing.

Hello! Recently I have been more forgetful and it's increasing. I forget what I was going to do or do something else instead. for example I went to the washroom to wash my face but came out brushing my teeth at middle of the day. sometimes I lose track of what I was doing. Mix up words too. for example I probably wanted to say the food is in the fridge but end up saying in the mircowave. should I be concerned?

Hello Dr. Rynne and thank you for your time and expertise. My husband has a history of Melanoma skin cancer on his leg- about 5 years ago. It was removed and no further treatment was needed. Recently he has had multiple symptoms of chronic pain, back pain, forgetting things, one episode of completely forgetting how to get home from a familiar place, depression. He is 57. He was given diagnosis such as demylenating disease, and had a brain scan showing a S-1 lesion. I am sorry for the spelling, though I am educated, spelling is not my strong suit. Doctors have thrown around the diagnosis of MS, after an EMG and series of neurological tests. Could you offer some other suggestions for him of other tests or dx. Manyr Thanks, Christine
