I can start to say something or tell my husband something and the words I need totally leave me. I loose my thought and have to really concentrate to get it back. This is so embarrassing when you are trying to talk to some one and they just turn and walk away like I might be contagious or something.
I usually laugh and say it’s just my Fibro fog!
Yes, Fibro Fog is very real.
Years ago, I experienced driving and didn't know where I was going. Now, that was very scary for me!! Then one day I went to the wrong place and didn't realize til I got there..
When I was providing mental health counseling, I would be talking and all of a sudden, my train of thought would just leave me. It would be so embarrassing for me. I would try to dress it up to make it seemed that my thought was still there, but in reality I had no clue of knowledge of it. Thru the years and currently, I have an array of Fibro Fog not knowing back then why I was going thru this. I actually learned bout Fibro Fog til attending a Fibromyalge Support Group while listening to others share.
@A MyFibroTeam Member I have experienced forgetfulness where I was while driving during three times. My friend was with me the third time. After we got in the car, I forgot how to get home. I will be discussing something then totally forget my next sentence.
I read that memory loss was one of the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
