I have never ever ever had an issue knowing, remembering, connecting! Does this last as long as you take the meds? Anything to do about it? Is it here even if I STOP the meds? Feel like the fourth Stooge! Larry Moe Curly and Marie!
I think brain fog is one of the hardest symptoms. I am on short term disability in part because of the fog. It’s awful! I even had my doctor check me for Alzheimer’s because I forget everything! My sweet family tries to understand it when I forget things but I know it’s hard for them. I even cut back on my pain medicine to see if it would help and it doesn’t. I’m in pain and can’t remember! Sticky notes were my friend but now I find them and have no idea what I was doing! That’s kinda funny but sad too!
I get the fog from the Fibromyalgia. I’m not sure u get it from Ra. It’s annoying that I want to throw up my hands and say I quit. I’m frustrated with the fog!!
I know how you feel... I forget where I am in a sentence... it is terrible! I took the pill form and now I do the injections... but it does make me forgetful
Hate the brain fog! Had it a few days last week & could not focus or concentrate. Lack of sleep has a lot to do with it.
Had it also during the first months of the big general flare. It started to go away as i got better. I ve heard that antidepressants might help, but i haven't tried it. Good thing is that it went away after sone months, and since then it has sometimes come back, when i feel ra-tired, but not like that thing at the begining...
