The fog has become increasingly difficult to navigate. During this phase I have been in lately with the pain being ever present I find the fog has gotten more intense. I did not know what the Fibro Fog really was for me until recently. But now I see it clearly.
For me there is nothing more disturbing than to have someone tell you that you had a conversation with them, but yet you do not remember it at all. It has been happening mostly during stretches where my pain is intense and I am unable to control it. I find this strangely comforting however, because I can assign it to my fibromyalgia and not alzheimers, (I hope!)
The “I Hope” part is the most alarming of all. I have no way of knowing for certain that it isn’t Alzheimer’s only that the Fibro Fog is also a significant symptom discussed by Doctors as happening to those of us who have fibromyalgia. So it is to that I cling. In the meantime I think it best not to spend a lot of time worrying about something that I cannot control at this point. I will however, be searching for any suggestions on ways to control or limit “the fog”.
Peace and Blessings
