      Oh heck yeah!! And my meds make it worse!! What’s scary for me is that dementia runs in both sides of my family, so I do a lot of puzzles and read a lot to keep my brain working. I also try to exercise and get fresh air, eat as best I can and I limit alcohol and other toxic substances. Why take the chance on giving my body what it doesn’t need? Hopefully your family & friends understand it’s just your condition, not YOU.

      Brain fog is a common symptom of many autoimmune illnesses. I have it. It can be frustrating and embarrassing at times. Just try to relax. Tell yourself it is a symptom of your illness and keep going.

        @thrillsnchills brain fog is natural with fibromyalgia meds. It can be made worse with hormones. Also, your fibromyalgia symptoms can get worse with the hormones. I know I had issues with brain fog after my hysterectomy. Keep going and take the time to take care of yourself .
