There are some days I feel like I am getting early onset Alzheimer's with this brain fog, I can't find the words I need to say or remember my student's names. Has anybody found anything that helps? Any food or vitamins?
I will be in a conversation and totally lose my train of thought or will go to do something and forget what I was going to do. I knew nothing of brain fog until now but it makes sense. But it is so frustrating.
I have brain fog and it gets frustrating when the word I say is wrong and again...until the right one comes out. Those that know me realize the problem and help me. Sometimes I can describe what I want to say and they come up with the word.
I thought my brain fog was early onset dementia! I always prided myself on being "sharp" and now its like all of the edges are rounded off. I forget things, get confused, and sometimes feel like I can't get the words from my mind to leave my mouth! And it is worse when I'm fatigued!
When I started MTX by injection instead of pills, I thought I had sudden onset Alzheimer's. I was scared to say anything. However, I accidently found a group on MTX and some people take Mucinex D
The brain fog has been completely embarrassing at work and there have been some serious issues because of it. It has exacerbated my anxiety which in turn has decreased my confidence in all areas of my life. And that increases my depression. I have energy issues because of hypothyroidism which coupled with the pain and swelling simply makes it difficult to move some days. I had issues with brain fog before going on the medications for RA. I think it had to do with my thyroid. They tell me the autoimmune diseases travel in packs so I just wonder what else is lurking.
