I am posting on behalf of my wife. We have been dealing with this "Brain Fog" for a year now. At first, we thought it was due to my wife's Thyroid medication. The doses were changed over the last few months but my wife was either to high or low. We have finally got the dose correct. This was what started the "Brain Fog"
She kept telling me about the feelings of dizziness and like being in a dream world. I could never relate to the description of the issue. It has affected our lives recently. My wife is afraid to drive (scared of crashing or passing out), and no longer is able to drive our son to school. She has also had to stop working. Last week she felt like fainting, so we went to the hospital emergency, they ran all the tests and sure enough they were all good. We spoke with our family doctor today and he diagnosed my wife with GAD. At first I didn't take him seriously, but he did have 30 years of experience. We will be making a Psychologist appointment to tackle this issue. Today I found this forum. After reading all the posts I am now convinced my wife has an anxiety problem that is causing this "Brain Fog". I feel today is the first step in the resolution of the problem. I will post updates on this page documenting our journey. At this point my wife just stays home watching TV, afraid to go outside, scared to drive, scared to be alone while I am at work etc.
List of tests and doctors seen:
Chiropractor (did help in reducing headaches and diarrhea)
Eye Doctor (confirmed my wife's eyes are OK, she was worried she had an eye issue due to fogginess)
Endocrinologist (got my wife's Thyroid dose under control finally)
CAT scan (all good)
All Bloodwork tests (all good)
Eye Ear and Nose specialist (no issue found)
Sinus X-ray (all good)
ECG scheduled (probably will show ok, but will check anyways)
Anyone able to provide feedback on how to get rid of the "fog"??
