axxie - November 12

I'm doing ok pain wise, and I'm hoping that I can stay that way. I do take great pains, of eating and taking care of myself. It does pay, physically.

Now my problem is FIBROFOG, I am such a hard time of it, I think I'm normal, but people around me, are asking me, "If I OK" My husband and daughter think I have a problem. I'm I loosing my brain, by asking the same question a few times!!!!

Axxie - I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time. I have to say that as someone who has been on this board for a long time that I've seen big changes in you. I'd like to gently suggest that you consider seeing a neurologist for an evaluation. I think something is wrong and so do you or you would not be posting this thread.

As a time line, I think that your memory issues really got started about the time you decided to go back to work. Maybe it is all stress related, but I for one would want to be sure about that. I'm trying really hard not to appear like I am picking on you. But your posts don't always make total sense and they are full of spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and omissions. This is not the Axxie that I know who was sharp as a tack.

I just want you to know that as an outsider, I've noticed it too. I care about you and want things to be better. I would listen to your family because they are absolutely right. Please go and see a neurologist. Take care.

Thanks Fantod, I've noticed it too. I'm seeing the neuro this week actually this thursday coming. I don't know if she will repeat my brain scan again, the last one was showing signs of problems. The one thing I do know it's not dimentia. I think it happened after my work accident that started all my problems, back in 2006. Anyway I'll post when I see her and see what she thinks..

how long does fibro fog usually last? i feel like i've had the symptoms of it for several weeks now. is that normal? it's driving me crazy! i try to laugh it off around other people but it is concerning to me.

Yes, this is normal. Some people have it all the time and for others it fluctuates. You could try a supplement my nutritionist recommended called "phosphatidylserine." You can find it at any good health food store. It is very good for memory issues.

The best deal I have found on this supplement is through Puritan's Pride online. They call it "Neuro-PS." They offer very good sales and you can usually find a coupon for free shipping or a percentage off using Google. I hope that this information is helpful to you. Take care.

Saw my GP today to get results of blood tests...thyroid is off for the first time in 15 I get an adjustment on that; and I am deficient in B-12, so got a shot and will continue shots every month. This should help with my memory issues and fatigue. Take care...chefbeth

thanks fantod. your information is very helpful.

chefbeth, i too am b-12 deficient. have been taking monthly shots for almost a year now. it hasn't done a thing for my memory but hopefully you will have different results. my neuro finally gave me a medication that is suppose to help me sleep but unfortunately it hasn't help at all yet.

axxie, i hope you are feeling better and getting some answers that are helping you.

Axxie - Any news from the neuro?
