Brain Fog

Brain Fog

Any tips to stop brain fog in its tracks? I have had a period of very intense anxiety attacks and panic attacks for the last several days. Now today I'm stuck with total brain fog and lightheadedness. It's like I'm walking around in a dream. I can't piece my thoughts together and think straight. Also my head hurts. All I can seem to manage to do is lay down and sleep. It's a horrifying feeling and I just want to feel normal again. Any advice?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Lots of water, fibro related vitamins and antihistamine

Anyone Deal With Chronic Headaches That Can Last For Days?

For the last few months I've been dealing with bad headaches. Is this Fibro related?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Yes. I have had a few flare ups where i had a headache everyday for 2-3 weeks. I just try to remain calm, rest, drink fluids, and go for walks when u can. It can be scary but it will pass.

Does Anyone Deal With Getting Itchy After Having A Shower?

It seems every time I shower I end up with an itch all over . It lasts about 20 min or so.

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I've always used unscented products and still get the itch. Fibromyalgia does affect the nerves so makes sense
