General Question

I have a question. I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have had bouts of "forgetfulness" before like forgetting where I parked (which I always do) or forgetting what I'm going to say mid-conversation. My friend (who doesn't have fibro) and I laugh because we both do it. My question is what's the difference btw "fibro fog" and just being forgetful?

Re: General Question

If it started when your fibro did, it's fibro fog. If you've had it all your life, it's just being forgetful.

Re: General Question

I love you Jane, I couldn't have put that any better. LOL..Fibro fog strikes us all. I had horrible bouts of it last summer when I was at my worst. I think after a while the brain learns how to compensate..Good luck and remember you are not alone..
peace
Sandra
