Foggy brain, confusion, memory problems

30 years old, generally healthy and was pretty sharp minded and analytical person. Until recently.. And I am freaking because of what's happening to me lately:

- In the last five months, I've started noticing serious issues with the short term memory
- In the the last 4-5 months, I've been experiencing chronic depression, fatique, indifference to everything around, chronic down mood
- In the last 2 months my brain is mostly foggy, it is not as clear and sharp as before. I have hard time concentrating, remembering things that I just did or read... I forget the beginning of a sentence nto even finishing it. I skip words and paragraphs reading. I cannot focus..
- My attention is impaired. Twice I crossed the street at a wrong traffic light and was almost hit by a truck..
- My thoughts are spraying in millions of rays not focusing at a single issue at a time
- I let millions of typos, skip letters writing or typing, which was never to minimal before. I could blind type, but not anymore due to zillions of mistakes
- There is a weird sensation in the back of my head as if some rubber ball is there. Not painful, but I can feel it.
- My speech is affected. I cannot clearly express myself. I go and go in loops, having hard time finding/recalling the right word. I mumble and ramble. Sometime it gets awkward as I use absoltuely irrelevant words sporadically..

I've been seeing a neurologyst. I had an MRI done last year, which was clear. He looked at that report. EEG was clear. I am scheduled for the extended 72 hr EEG.

For approx same period of time I have been taking a number of vitamins: iron, fish oil, calcium, multivitamins, dry eye (rich in vitamin B and etc). I wonder if the combo might have caused this condition?

Also, back in April I have had a serious snerves break down, stress and first panic attack in my life. It was due to finding about my Father's health risks. We have strong bonds. I was shocked to know we might lose him. Then he had his second stroke and it crashed me.

I wonder if these emotional difficulties have affected my health?

What I want to know if the confusion like this is temporary?

I am terryfied as it seems like I am losing it.. My mental abilities are affected and it seriously impacts my productivity at work.

Please advice or share if anyone had anything similar..

Re: Foggy brain, confusion, memory problems

I am so sorry to hear all you are going through an your fathers health. That is enough to send anyone over the top. I was jus reading through this board as i am experiencing same fig an dizzyness panick. Are you taking any anxiety meds or antidepressants? I was always optimistic busy person an in my mid 30s anxiety depression an panic entered my life an comes an goes. Have also cared for parents with failing health. Not easy on the mind or body. Its good you are seeing neurologist. I dont have any answers but know anxiety can create a whole mess if not caught early. Good luck an pray you get it under control.
