Anyone else have brain fog so severe it interferes with being able to converse? It feels like a huge struggle just to get coherent sentences out sometimes

      Noun retrieval has never been harder. I’m also really isolated these days so conversation is generally tough from being out of practice

      Yes! POTS is a big contributor for me. Blood flows away from my limbs and brain so I get these “episodes” where my brain is so deprived of blood flow that I get confused, dissociate, and can hardly speak or follow a conversation. It’s rough out here! 😂

      Yes. And while i have a speech disorder and other learning disabilities, it is still obvious when its my POTS affecting me. I have to sit down if I have a conversation that lasts longer than 30 seconds or I cant do it. And talking makes me so POTSy.

      Yes, I will completely forget where I am/what I am doing/what I am saying sometimes in the middle of a sentence/activity. For one it's embarrassing and two sometimes people think I'm faking it for attention which really makes me upset and frustrated

      I find myself being less and less social because it's so hard for me to keep up with the conversation.

      Yeah sometimes but my neurologist prescribed Ritalin and he told me to do brain exercises on the Lumosity app so it’s been helping a bit

      I have ME/CFS, and I get awful brain fog when I overexert myself mentally/physically/emotionally. It wouldn't be a bad idea to see if there are certain stressors that make your brain fog worse. I had to stop taking classes, as studying was making it impossible to think or speak. Since then, my brain fog has significantly improved.

      YES!!! On my off days I can’t say grammatically correct sentences. I can’t even think of an example but I’ll say the weirdest things like “I want to hungry” instead of “I am hungry I want to eat” It’s been happening so much lately it’s weirding me out. I’m also a speech therapist so it’s fascinating. Glad I’m not the only one!!!!

      The people who know me have patience and understand. But I get super embarrassed when I have to talk to people I don't know outside
