    The Norwegian ME Association has interviewed neurologist and paediatrician professor Kristian Sommerfelt about cognitive challenges for children and adolescents with ME. He works at the children's ward at Haukeland university hospital in Bergen, Norway.

    He has long experience with children and adolescents with ME and has a talent for describing ME in an understandable way. Very sympathetic and knowledgable doctor who "gets it" when it comes to ME.

    Prof. Sommerfelt often gives lectures about ME for patients, carers and health personell in Norway. He also attended the panel debate after Unrest's European premiere at the film festival CPH DOX in Copenhagen.

    In this video he talks about:
    • Cognitive challenges in general
    • Brain fog
    • When cognitive challenges are most apparent
    • How health personell can address it
    • Connections with other symptoms
    • How the ability to talk is affected
    • How the memory is affected
    • Achieving a good everyday life with ME

    English subtitles for this interview were requested and are now provided.

    While very informative, it was emotionally difficult for me personally to revisit these symptoms. Thank you @Kalliope for posting.
