Brain Fog and RA

Posted on May 31, 2019



“I feel like I am losing my mind. Words don’t come out. I forget what I’m doing. It’s awful!” - A member on myRAteam

Forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating and struggling to find the right word are common experiences for people with RA. These brain fog symptoms are frustrating and at times embarrassing. Members on myRAteam have found different ways to manage brain fog, including diet modification, medication changes, and lots of post-it notes.

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Brain fog is one of the most discussed topics.
