Brain in a fog? Not that uncommon with thyroid disease. . .

By July 13, 2011 - 7:52am

Have you ever experienced "brain fog"? That feeling of concentration, language, and even thought processes just in a fog and unable to fully function?

You are not alone!

I will never live down the time I asked my niece to hand me a pumpkin while pointing at the napkins at dinner one night, or the many times I simply have to point at an object for my family to know what I am talking about.

Some days are better than others, but I can really tell when my thyroid is acting up based on my level of brain fog. And yes, it DOES EXIST!

Here is a letter from someone else who has experienced it http://thyroid.about.com/b/2004/06/27/brain-fog-and-hypothyroidism-one-womans-story.htm. Not sure if mine is due to iron or not, but maybe someday I can find out!

Just wanted you all to know you are not alone, and these symptoms are real :)

Take Care!
