Re: MTHFR CFS (brainfog)
Found this on the message board, you may have seen it already. If so disregard...
Its called Derealization which is a Dissociative Dissorder. Ive had it exactly 13 yrs this month. I called it Brain Fog for about 11 years before finding out the name for it. It was the beginning of my problems. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia & there is something else going on which I will be seeing another Nuerologist for.
I have seen a Physicologist for the Derealization. Its beleived it is caused by a tramatizing even. I had a tough childhood which is why the Physicologist thinks if I talk about it, it'll cure me. I have it 24/7 never goes away. However for most people it comes & goes. It can be a symptom of FM, CFS & MS. I have a friend with FM and another with both FM & MS. They say that it hits them in times of stress & goes away. I do wonder if mine stays because I'm always under stress, not as bad these days though.
I do have Brain fog & extremelly forgetful, but not the same thing as Derealization.
Anyhow I hope this gives you all insight on this disorder & helps you find a way to recovery
