Help With Brain Fog

Help With Brain Fog

Has anyone found any ways to combat the RA brain fog? I honestly thought I couldn't concentrate because I was in too much pain. But now after being in remission for a while, I'm having a flare. It's nowhere near as bad as the old ones, but I can't gather my thoughts to save my life

Brain fog is just another one of the many symptoms. Once you get the disease under control, the brain fog subsides and may go away completely. Getting deep, restful sleep seems to help. I've had RA for over 20 years. When i first got sick, the brain fog was horrible. I thought i was losing my mind. After i was put on a biologic, the brain fog subsided. I have very little problem these days.

I write everything down, make lists, take notes. Even that is hard sometimes, but it is the best I have found. Other than that, I have noticed that the brain fog is so much worse when I don't sleep well. If there is anything you can do to get some rest, it might help.

Best wishes for a better tomorrow! I'll be thinking of you.

I have a lot of trouble with brain fog. I know I'm not stupid, but sometimes when I am with a group I don't want to participate because I don't always say what I had intended to say - things frequently sound like I can't keep a straight train of thought.

Hi Quilter I too experience brain fog just like that! So I write down what I want to say first then read it back to myself before responding so I totally get it but still participate don’t let brain fog quite you!
