Sandy Murphy on Sep, 18, 2012:
I was so releived to find this info! Just last Friday (9-14-2012) I was at work. I suddenly found myself not knowing how to do my routine duties. I also began repeating myself; ie Giving a message to someone, then telling that person again two minutes later. Went to ER: They did a CAT Scan, MRI, and tested spinal fluid. No results, other than an unknown ear infection. Sent me home with antibiotics. The next morning I was as good as new. My hubby felt Mucinex may be the culprit, so I quit them. Now I know what happened. What a relief!!
