    Brain Fog

    Hi everyone!

    I'm brand new to this forum but sought it out as I've been struggling with brain fog for about three weeks now. I've seen a naturopathic doctor who ordered blood tests to draw for Lyme disease, my thyroid, and a whole panel of infectious diseases. While I wait a month for those results, I was wondering if anybody could help me learn to cope with the newly onset persistent brain fog. It onset after I cut out gluten, but the doctor thinks they are not related.

    Any tips to help me get through the persistant feeling that I'm "fading"? The most terrifying symptom is when I only feel half awake and can't dig myself out of the hole to concentrate or hardly do anything. I tend to be the absolute worst in the morning and significantly better at night. I finally can shower at night and do some chores around the house. The fog seems to lift enough. But the rest of the day is absolutely a struggle and miserable. I'm only 22

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much!

    Thank you for your response! Can allergies cause sudden onset of brain fog? Also, if I eliminate dairy, soy and corn as well, any idea how long it takes to clear up? Thank you

    Sure but I'm talking about envirinmental allergies not food ones. Right now the leaves are falling for there is a lot of dust and mold from them. And we just got finished with ragweed season. Both are very allergenic.

    Re: Brain Fog

    Mine fog is brought on by my blood sugar dropping. I always have glucose tablets with me now and can tell it's dropping when my eyes start "jumping" and I can't think clearly.
