Hi T owen,

I relate so much to what you're going through. I've had periods just like that when my fibro was really flaring - felt like my brain was truly broken! Losing things, struggling with speech, forgetting everything, making mistakes - even crashed my car once! I found that the more I got my stress levels in check, worked on pacing, and sleep hygiene too, the better all of this stuff got. So, I really recommend reading Sunkacola's post (pinned to the top of the General discussion section) about managing fibro, and implementing anything that you're not doing already. I also found supplements for mitochondrial support helped with the dreaded fog. This was CoQ10 and Alpha Lipoic Acid for me, which I still take every day. It's not perfect, but I feel like way less of a train wreck these days!

I hope you feel better soon, and that your poor head's OK 🤞

Very interesting to read about the supplements, and wondering what might help.

Just for the context and from personal experience: It's not side effects (sfx) from meds or supps that are making this worse by any chance?!
