CHRONIC FATIGUE :: BRAIN FOG
Chronic Fatigue and Brain Fog/Concentration Issues have been two of the most debilitating parts of my life.
I always struggled with the brain fog, and concentration issues since I was little, but when I had my neck injury in 2002, the Chronic Fatigue set in and the brain fog was worse than I ever experienced.
Fatigue and Brain fog along with concentration problems are all symptoms of . . . .
MDD, Being a HSP, Anxiety Disorders, ADHD Inattentive Type, Trauma, Nutrition imbalances, Stress, Physical Pain, Vestibular Disorders, and more, but these were the main issues I had throughout my life, so I had a hard time knowing what was driving the chronic fatigue and brain fog more.
When my vestibular disorders hit me, the level of fatigue and brain fog was even worse.
I continue to struggle with brain fog and cognitive impairment 24/7, but I can say that that fatigue goes on waves and is much better for me to manage than it use to be.
Every day I feel slow, and as if there is something seriously wrong with my brain. Sometimes I refer it as brain damage.
Conversation can be very difficult and can cause more over stimulation and a disorienting feeling if I don't force balance in my days.
Some days are better than others. I have learned my triggers.
I deal with derealization every day, but again the level of it varies.
The inconsistency of symptoms and not knowing how I will feel from day to day can be difficult, but redirecting my redirecting my thoughts and patterns have helped a lot.
