Fibromyalgia often creates episodes and experiences that create a loss of mental clarity and problems with memory. These episodes are called "fibro fog," and is a side effect of Fibromyalgia that can have a significant impact on individuals. Patients have described it as having a ping-pong ball loose in your brain, trying to land on the right words to say, or, as simple as constantly losing things or mix-matching phone numbers.
While we can all relate to these incidents from periods in our lives it's important to understand that for someone with Fibromyalgia, the incidents are much more often and more severe than the general population. "Fibro fog" is much more severe, often, and more negatively impacts the lives for people suffering with Fibromyalgia.
