What is Brain Fog?

Brain fog is one of the most common symptoms of many chronic illnesses, including lupus, multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia. In this Mind Over Meniere’s video, Glenn describes how brain fog affects him on a daily basis.

Brain fog is more than just the occasional forgetfulness that most people suffer from. It is a cognitive impairment that can affect conversation, short-term memory, and the ability to concentrate and focus.

Glenn explains that very few people know about brain fog since it’s an invisible symptom. He hopes that his videos will help the public realize how common it is for people with chronic illnesses to suffer from brain fog and how those who suffer from it will require patience and understanding.

    Glenn,

    Thanks for sharing this video covering such an important topic. I have bilateral SCDS (made more manageable with two Craniotomy surgeries) I also have fibromyalgia, which resulted from the toll my vestibular deficiency has taken on my muscles and joints. Needless to say, Brain Fog is part of my daily life. It affects all of the things you mentioned. I also have challenged “special awareness.” I get lost easily, even in familiar areas and my “internal GPS” is pretty much non existent. I frequently can’t figure out how to get places I have been to often. My chronic fatigue, and SCD related tinnitus have also affected my sleep, and caused intense type of Brain Fog symptoms upon waking, where I can’t recall my own name, where I am or anything about my life for several minutes. (Very scary!) I’ve spoken to my about this and he confirmed that this is all due to my chronic sleeplessness, which intensifies my challenges with brain fog during the day. I currently am on disability due to my SCDS and related symptoms postoperatively. (By the way thank you for mentioning SCDS.) Brain Fog is real and I’m grateful you are helping to spread awareness. I have a foundation to help spread SCD awareness and we give small grants to patients to help with expenses.
