Does Anyone's Brain Get Stuck?

Does Anyone's Brain Get Stuck?

I don't think I have the fog I hear described, but I do feel like my brain will get stuck at times in a train of thought that I have trouble getting out of. Kinda like hearing a song on the radio and then humming it all day long, even though you don't particularly like the song. Does anyone else experience this?

Yes. Like a mouse on a wheel and he can't get off.
An overactive sympathetic nervous system, also known as the body’s fight or flight response is closely linked to fibromyalgia. Any perceived threat or stressful situation can trigger the fight of flight response. The fight or flight response is designed to help us function in emergency situations. It is meant to be a response that only lasts a short time and then turns itself off. With fibromyalgia, the fight or flight response gets stuck in the “on” position playing havoc with our body, our emotions and our ability to think clearly.

My "brain fog" I explain as my brain will not completely wrap itself around any one thing. I have trouble staying on task or completing something. I have to make myself follow steps to finish things sometimes. Some days I just have to let things go and try later.

Yes my brain will get stuck at times in a train of thoughts that I have trouble with getting out of. I thought I was the only one. I also gets fibro fog which is different. Forgetting names, forgetting where I put things, and what I want to say, mixing up my words, are all fibro fog.
