Is there anything that helps with brain fog? Or do I just have to wait it out. I am in grad school and I get so frustrated when I lose time to flares and brain fog. I use the healthy days I have excited and doing too much (just because it feels SO GOOD TO FEEL GOOD) and end up wiping myself out and getting sick. I know I have to find balance but I'm just wondering if anyone has ideas of things that help feeling cloudy and not "checked in." Thank you for all your help.
PeanutValerie, I have had brain fog for 5 years now. I wish I had helpful suggestions but I havent been able to figure it out myself. I use to do medical coding, and I can't even remember what some medical terms mean, let alone how to do coding. My rheumatologist said whatever I do, don't stress myself when I can't remember. And she told my husband to stop getting angry when I have these blocks.
I take HTP supplements to help with the fog, also a low dose of escitlopram in the morning. Sometimes when I'm really lagging behind I whip up a nutritional boost drink with the juicer...also, remove as much stress also you can by pre-planning for your healthy days also no pacing yourself through them. The fog is one symptom that let's you know your disorder needs some extra maintenance right now.
