Anyone else had any luck breaking out of the fuzzy brain feeling?

Hello Meese. I'll qualify my answer and say most days. In my mind (or what's left of it LOL) there are a variety of brain fogs. It took me quite a while to sort them out and figure out how to deal with each.  I don't know about anybody else, but for me it's important to figure what's causing my brain fog and to work on correcting that. Sometimes this can take a long time and sometimes only a few days.

 For example for a long time my brain was fuzzy until I got used to my meds and still once in a while they can make me a little fuzzy headed, especially if I don't feel well physical and perhaps my bodies metabolism is off a bit, slowing the exit of the medications from my body.

 If I don't watch my over all health, too tired for example, my brain cramps up pretty quickly these days. If I take on too much stress,my brain just shuts down or at least it feels that way.

 As my illness waxes and wanes I can still feel pretty fuzzy headed.

 However in general if I watch what I eat, take my meds, watch my habits, don't allow myself to get stressed out and the fates decide to be a little bit kind to me, my mind is usually pretty clear. It took a while though. Take Care. paul m
