So I know I sometimes get this. Not as much as others, but I have some questions about it. I am feeling like mine comes along more if I am really fatigued or have my period. Also does anyone else every feel like with this they are spacey, dizzy, and things just seem weird, like trippy?
I know all too well... I can read something and it is forgotten seconds after I have read it...its a huge drag...makes me feel like I have early dementia...I am way to young for that though so its fibro fog....
Not only do I forget what I was saying, I forget words I should know. Sometimes people talk to me and I am not sure where I am at but I have no clue what they said. I haven't noticed it more when I am tired but then again I only get one to three hours of sleep before the pain wakes me up.
I forget simple words in conversations all the time. My friends are very patient with me,but it's frustrating because I know I'm not the airhead I sound like. Then some people try to help by suggesting words. "No, hush, let me think for a moment!"
My pain is terrible in my neck and not great everywhere else but what gets me the most is the fibrofog. I pride myself for my knowledge and the ability to think on my feet. I love learning. I can't study anymore and remember what I have read.
Is it the pain or the medications we use for the pain? I have psoriatic arthritis (PA) with pain a part of every day despite numerous mmedications. I've been writing a book for five years and now can hardly create a complete sentence.
I get the fog daily and it makes me feel so stupid some times!!!!!!!! I have to ask my husband how to spell very day words....all be talking and just stop in mid sentence...I feel like people make fun of me for it and you will all soon find out it shows in my typos as well :-( we are applying for something that needed to be done online. The guy told me how to save my work so I can come back and finish.....which I did and I wrote down the username....password ad this efile number! Now I go in to finish ad it says my e number is wrong. I know husband is a bit mad...so hopefully I can call them this morning and get their help...I pray! Fibro fog a its best......grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I forget what I'm talking about in the middle of my sentence. I forget where I'm going and just drive on past, but more recently I've ended up driving like 30 minutes in the wrong direction and with the neuropathy driving isn't easy. Fatigue makes everything worse, and it can effect my brain fog too but not as much as it does my neuropathy/muscle spasms. The brain fog makes me use energy I don't have to spare, which makes me more fatigued.
Oh, I don't feel nearly so alone...............sorry for you guys, but nice to know I'm not alone. I think I'm quite intelligent, but to talk to me, you would definitely disagree. I loose what I was going to say mid sentence, makes me sound really daft. Also ask how to spell really everyday words. I run my own company with my husband, couldn't do it with out him, I sort of play at working as soooooo unreliable. But I often (far too often) say I would sack myself, or not employ me!! Some days I can't make it over the yard to work at all and other days only for an hour or too!! I often go for bed meetings!!!! (Pun on board meetings!!). Thankfully I have a really great team around me. Definitely feel more foggy with no sleep!
