Does this sound like brain fog?
« on: January 21, 2014, 06:29:47 AM »
Hey

I've posted a couple of times now about memory problems but haven't really gotten am answer from anyone about whether it sounds relatively normal.

My symptoms are:

A lot of trouble remembering what I've just done
Feeling like things I've just done have happened to someone else
Trouble staying focused
Trouble staying in the 'now'
Tired brain
Trouble remembering just about everything - I have to REALLY concentrate to remember what I had for dinner two nights ago

Does this sound like brain fog? Is it normal?

I'm not that anxious at the moment - and I've never had a phenomenal memory. But I feel like it is getting worse.

OR. Is this my newest health anxiety scare that's really just my evolving, clever anxiety trying to trick me into thinking I have something wrong with my memory (and by extension by brain)

Is it possible I'm more stressed than I even realise and this IS a symptom of anxiety?

How sad that I don't even know any more...

I would say anxiety related. Only because i have anxiety and this has been happening to me for a few years now. Also i read that sweetners can cause this too. I stopped using sweeteners and memory seems to have improved after 6 months. I also quit smoking and use the e cig now and i heard that nicotine helps with memory so it could be that to that has helped my memory these days.

Most people who have anxiety have these symptoms that you are having.

Thanks for the reply - I hope it's just anxiety and that I'm just too focused on it.

What is the point where you would know to see a doctor about this?
