Fibro Fog – Fibromyalgia Brain

Yes it’s real, when I’m in the midst of an attack (which lasts for days) trying to form a clear thought or retain information is damn near impossible.  So as you can see I’m trying to study to renew my license and can’t remember a thing I read. Ugh!  I’ll try again later.

There’s not a part of me that’s not physically affected by Fibromyalgia. At times all symptoms are flared at once.

1. Stumbling
2. Joints swelling
3. Irritable bowel
4. Acid Reflux
5. Dizziness
6. Numbness
7. Extreme Fatigue
8. Brain Fog
9. Wide Spread Pain
10. Nausea
11. Charlie Horse
12. Body / Mind Conflict
13. Extreme Chest Pain
14. Chills

Imagine trying to live your life this way

With that said as we are only on the 8th day of April it has become my nemesis. It’s rained everyday thus far and my body had definitely turned on me. I have been paralyzed with pain and fatigue.
