Saying the wrong thing

Is this part of fibro?

I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I certainly have many of the symptoms. I am 40 years old and I find myself saying the wrong words, mostly at work when things are getting stressful (I work as a receptionist in an animal hospital). I get laughed at. Yesterday I meant to say " hit by car" and I said "hit by cat" (we had a cat coming in that was hit by a car). The other day one of my co-worker's husbands was on the phone and I could picture his face, but couldn't remember his name (he had not sad it). My co-workers all laughed when I couldn't remember his name. I have to be really careful when dialing the phone at work because I sometimes get the numbers wrong. I also spell things the wrong way. This is all very unlike me.

Re: Saying the wrong thing

Hi, my 40 year old wife is going through some nasty stuff also. many symptoms of fibromyalgia and many others. We have been to doctor after doctor with no avail, they act as if we are crazy. Check out black mold and also mercury poisioning (you get it from fillings, fish, industry pollutants, etc.) They may be helpful as to your memory problems. These things can CAUSE fibromyalgia. Hope it helps! My wife has practically every symptom of them both.

Re: Saying the wrong thing

Wordweaver, yes all those memory things and word problems are something we all go through. We call it brain fog or fibro fog and lots of other things. All the things you describe has happen to me and many others. Relaxing and not stressing over it helps, cause the stress just makes it and your fibro symptoms worse.

Wayne welcome and those are some good suggestions. Sorry you and your wife have to try to deal with this disease.

Re: Saying the wrong thing

Wayne, thanks for the post. I will look into mercury poisoning, but I live out in the country and have for many years. No industrial poisoning here. And I eat very little fish (can't afford it!). But I do have fillings that were put in many years ago when I was a kid.

The memory stuff has been recent and alarming to me because my mother passed away last summer. She was never properly diagnosed. At one point the doctors thought she had Altzeimer's, then they changed their minds. She went down hill very quickly.

I haven't been to a specialist yet. I feel that my regular doctor thinks I am making things up (she doesn't say this, it is just my feeling). But I am getting more and more ready to find someone who can give me a diagnosis. Work is getting to be more of a struggle

Re: Saying the wrong thing

Wordweaver, this brain fog is, as far as I can tell, is just something to get used to. It is really aggravating sometimes. I've gotten to where I stutter, I never did before the past few years. I catch myself (sometimes) when I've typed a word all wrong, well, not all wrong, I type all the right letters, they're just not in the right places. And I too, say the wrong words at times, usually whoever I'm talking to will look at kinda weird for a sec and about the time I catch it and repeat it the right way, they are laughing, with me-not at me. Just try to take it all in stride and laugh about it. It may sound really off sometimes but at least we can still talk.

Re: Saying the wrong thing

Is it worse when you are tired, like at the end of a hard day at work?

I haven't been diagnosed yet. Who can make the diagnosis? My regular doctor says she can refer me to a rheumatologist.
