I had brain fog for years but it took awhile for me to hear it put that way--that sums it up--BRAIN FOG.  I finally discovered I had gluten intolerance.  After seeing a naturopath, I also discovered the heavy metals, overload of candida, and the viruses, not Lyme's but Epstein Barr and a couple others!  Bummer.  I've been fighting these last things for a couple years now, the viruses, and I'm also sure the brain fog has contributed to my anxiety attacks.  I think once we get in these delicate states we are way more sensitive to things in our bodies, whether it's meds, foods or nasty bugs!  I still suffer from it but not as bad. :spineyes:

Hi,
  oooh yes,brain fog sounds funny,but it is a most frustrating symptom.
   I have real trouble talking,articulating as I just can't remember words,so in the end I can never relate what I want to say.
  It's very difficult,esp when you were a person who was organised,used to multi task and hold a good conversation.
  It is just all gone.People laugh when it happens and I will make fun of it when it happens.
  But it hurts and it really is frustrating,where is this person who could get things done?
  They seem to have disappeared.
 I also seem to be some what clumsy,when I never was.No matter how hard I concentrate I can't do amything properly anymore.
  Brain fog is a major symptom and very debilitating.

Exactly the brain-fog would cause me to have anxiety attacks as well and not the other way around. I've gotten used to the this awkward feeling of brain-fog so the anxiety attacks stopped, but then again the brain-fog makes me feel like my mind has the attention span of a soap dish, and my brain with  the consistency of goopy cheese. lol

"Boredom" "not doing what I am supposed to be doing". That pisses me off. It is the same at school and with everybody else I know. Everybody else thinks that I don't focus because they think I am bored or don't want to do anything. If my memory wasn't all f***ed up and I didn't have this damn brain fog, then I wouldn't be here spilling my emotions out, but I am here because I don't know what could be causing this neurological condition. I'm sick and tired of feeling f***ed up all the time and I truly have no idea what could be causing this f***ing brain fog!!! If everybody else feels this way then reply. If not then I must be a worthless lazy ass piece of s h i t.

This was a helpful article. Thanks for sharing. I am hypoglycemic and I never realized how much it affected my brain. Until recently I had a very strong handle on it, but due to a new medicine it has been acting up again.

Hello everyone.
I too have brain fog since i was 14( sexually active). i have POIS(post orgasmic illness syndrome). I want a cure for brain fog.I have constant brain fog on all days. But if i ejaculate i have severe brain fog for 2 days and then the constant brain fog on normal days sets in. i want to know if anyone have tried liothyronine sodium (t3) for brain fog ? I am not hypothyroid but i am going to try t3 for brain fog. I want to know if anyone have tried it.
Thanks

Like many others, my anxiety started with a "brain fog." I just woke up one morning and it was there. It was as though the whole world had changed overnight. I felt like I was in a daze, almost like I was living in a fishbowl with some invisible barrier between me and the rest of the world. I still do feel it from time to time, and the only way to get past it is to just try to ignore it and try harder to "connect" with other people and things. Retreating into my own head, trying to figure out what it is or why it's there, only makes it worse.

That said, while the site describes "brain fog" pretty well, it does concern me somewhat. It lists a whole number of causes and factors without giving any references. I'm all for people trying whatever is going to work to get relief for their symptoms, but I do think people should do their best to be informed and talk to their own doctors (who know their medical history) before they start any kind of treatment.
