Fibro Fog in the syndrome of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue Brain fog (also called fibro-fog or cognitive dysfunction) is one of the most common complaints in people with fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). For many, it can have as much impact on their lives as pain or fatigue. In fact, some people say that the brain fog is the biggest of their physical symptoms. What Causes Brain Joints? We still do not know exactly what causes cognitive dysfunction in these conditions, but we have many theories about possible contributing factors, including: • Lack of restful sleep• Volume or abnormal blood flow from skull • Brain abnormalities • Delayed brain aging • Mental distraction due to pain. In FM, the fog of the brain is generally greater when the pain worsens. In both FM and CFS, It can be aggravated when you are worried, in a hurry or emotional overload. Depression , which is common in FM and CFS, is also associated with fibro-fog. However, some studies show that the severity of the brain fog does not correlate with the symptoms of depression. Many common drugs for FM and CFS can also contribute to the brain fog. Cerebral symptoms of fibro-fog: • The symptoms of mental confusion can range from mild to severe. • They often vary from day to day, and not all patients have them all.Symptoms include: Use of words and memory: • Difficulty remembering familiar words, using incorrect words, remembering names slowly. Short-term memory problems: • Forgetting, inability to remember what you have read or heard. • Spatial disorientation: By not recognizing a family environment, it is easy to lose, having difficulty remembering where it is. Difficulty doing Multitasking: • Inability to pay attention to more than one thing, forgetting the original task when distracted. • confusion and concentration problems, problems with information management, are easily distracted Mathematics / difficulties with number:• Difficulty performing simple mathematical operations, remembering sequences, transposition numbers, difficulty remembering numbers. • Some may also have other types of brain disorders. Brain joint and learning disorders: To date, we have no evidence that our brain fog comes from known learning difficulties. However, our problems are similar to those associated with diseases such as dyslexia (reading problems), dysphasia (difficulty speaking) and dyscalculia (problems with math / time / spatial problems). If you think you may have a learning disorder, talk to your doctor. Diagnosis can help you get reasonable adjustments at work or make a disability. The treatment of brain jointFor some people, brain joints solve effective treatment for pain or sleep problems. But not everyone can find effective treatments, which leaves many affected without treatment to this problem. Extensions are a common option. Although we do not have much evidence to support its effectiveness, some doctors and people with these diseases have noticed that dietary supplements help improve brain function / thinking. Common supplements for brain joints are: • 5-HTP • Vitamins B • L-Carnitine • Hill • Omega-3 (fish oil) (Chia) • Rhodiola • St. John’s wort • Teanin (amino acid present in tea leaves) Some doctors recommend dietary changes to include “brain-friendly “ foods, some of which are natural sources of the aforementioned additives. Some of these foods are: • Fish (Omega-3) • Canola oil or walnut oil (Omega-3) • Eggs (hill) • Fruits and vegetables • Carbohydrates • Chia seeds (Omega-3) Some studies on fibromyalgia show that moderate Exercise can also help improve brain function. brain TrainingResearchers are learning more about the brain and how it works, and new information can help us understand brain joint. Research on brain aging and some degenerative diseases shows that cognitive training can sometimes delay, stop or reverse the loss of intellectual functions. Some doctors use intellectual training programs, which often include software that you use at home. Video game companies and websites that offer games that say they can improve intellectual function suggest some evidence that virtual reality games enhance memory and critical thinking benefits. Since this is a novel science area, it is likely that more can be learned about mental processes and their functions over the next few years. THANKS FOR READING!
