Well, I guess the best way to describe my "Brain Fog" is to say that I have problems with my thoughts and my memory- things that I should know and remember, for some reason, I just can't! Many times, I have forgotten what I was talking about right in the middle of the conversation! Things happen, like I forgot where I put my keys when I just had them a second ago. I go out to my car, start it up and forgot where I was going to go!!
In fact, we all participated in a thread here where we, tongue-in-cheekly, describled our various issues with brain fog.
Many of us are in our 20's - 30's - 40's and even 50's, so these issues just don't seem to fall in the category of early Alzheimer's. Therefore, the syndrome is a very real part of our Lupus. But researchers across the world are finding out that these symptoms are REAL and are just as REAL as the pain ithat you experience with Lupus - so, Welcome to Lupus Brain Fog!
Those posts about our different experiences with Brain Fog can be found in Lauri's Lounge. The thread is titled, "You Know You Have Lupus If..." and was started by Pinkjmf on July 6, 2006.
Peace and Blessings
