Hi, I always consider brain fog as when I can't remember what I was going to do or say or forget things OR zone out.

Hope that helps..

Sort of like your head is fuzzy, you can't really think straight.

Cool

Foggy: Spaced out, altered perceptions, lit, fuzzy,
sadated its like living in a dream. I think everyone will experiance this feeling during a common cold. Have you ever smoked marijuana, it really makes you foggy.

I think it's very similar to the feeling I get after I've been awake for 24 hours or more without sleep. It's hard to make decisions or do simple calculations. Everything is done in slow motion because there's a profound lack of mental sharpness.

Brain fog is a symptom I still have. This morning I ground my coffee beans and started to pour the water in the press and wondered, where did the coffee go? Well, I put it in my coffee to go mug. Duh! Also at work I forget how to answer the phones! It is really embarrassing. Hopefully the fog will lift soon cause I feel like an idiot!
