Does your brain fog and memory loss get worse under stress or is it consistent?

Brain fog is definitely worse under stress, also fatigue. Find that I have to keep a set routine of bedtime and amount of sleep. Praying morning and night helps with the stress.

I know what you mean. I used to love dancing, now, the pain in my legs is excruciating, when I walk on the slightest incline.
I miss me too.

I feel the same. I'm having CBT as the irritation and pain spills into the relationships...unable to meet friends and letting people down last minute. I have pretty much opted out of most gatherings with those who never even have the decency to ask about thos condition so I feel very invisible in those situations and had to say no to many family birthdays etc. As much as it is the right thing to do I'm left with the dokm of judgement and that I should be there etc etc. Mentally exhausting and then pain sets in bla bla... oh for a not to give a shit attitude! ♥

Yes agree that stress makes fiber worse, but….. I also notice that Fibro gives you stress and makes you feel more irritable, more jumpy, and that causes stress, so you go around in circles, which comes first - irritable from Fibro - which causes stress - or Stress itself causes Fibro to flare. And around & around we go.
I dont know about you all — but i want off this ride. 🥲

Yes, I now know that when I'm over tired and in mote pain, I cannot function. I make silly mistakes, get mote stressed and finally very snappy with my family.
I now know to go lie down and calm down for a bit or it's the start of a flare up.

I do gentle yoga in a chair to start off with , depending on how I feel , drink water , and walk , even if only around the house and garden , on better days venture out with nature , its a good healing factor especially by the coast or a lake , hope it helps ,
