Brain fog that has never gone away.
It seems like most people with brain fog recall a certain moment in their lives in which their symptoms appeared. I've had this for what feels like my entire life. For many years this detached and spacey feeling was my reality, and so it went untreated for many years. I've been tested for hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, celiac (but not food allergies), hypoglycemia, but everything has come back normal. I even tried a candida diet for a week, but the lack of carbs and sugar made me go hypoglycemic. Doctors claim that it's all in my head and diagnose me with depression or anxiety, but the meds never work for me. I've gone from specialist to specialist trying to figure out what this could be.
Brain fog is something I experience from the moment I wake up. It gets better during certain times of day, but it never fully goes away. Here is what I mean by brain fog. Constant drunk feeling-pressure inside head-dizziness-lightheadedness-cognitive issues, i.e. learning, processing, and particularly memory-decreased alertness-feeling unreal and unattached. I don't know what my next move will be. I'm thinking these symptoms are tied directly to my diet. Would a naturopath be my best bet?
I currently feel like I took some heavy sedatives or consumed some hard liquor. I want this brain fog gone. I'm tired of not being able to enjoy my life.
