Can you describe the feeling of brain fog?
I always have a hazy feeling ,like Im living in a dream or drunk .

The surrdening is unreal for me,I know there is a term call derealization or depersonalization.

Don't know is this brain fog or now?
anyone can relate?

sounds like it, this is one of my worst lyme symptoms. I think pinella brain nerve clense by nutramedix helps.

Brain fog for me is always having the name of somebody or soemthing on the tip of yoru tongue yet never finding it....it also means re-reading and type of sentences...be it Dr Seuess or advance reading....it aslo feels like a lite sinus headache you can never shake...

sometime you cannot follow a conversation or a movie plot...

depersoanliztion is a bit different and is more like an advanced brain fog...

like you don't know what day it is or time...and ofetn have to remind yourself and you feel detached...

all of this gets better hwoever...my brain fog is almost 100% gone..2 years agao i could not remeber clsoe friends names.

yes its horrible. For me-- everyone is different-- Clarithromycin made a HUGE difference. Also make sure you are detoxing as much as possible.

I had horrible brain fog. It has improved a good deal but not completely gone with treatment.

For me it was literally not being able to think clearly. Sometimes it was feeling like I was lost when driving on a street I drove on every week. It was not being able to read or comprehend what someone was saying. It was sometimes a feeling like I couldn't think ANY thought. At times it was very frightening.

But the good new is that it has improved. I have been in treatment 2 and 1/2 years. I noticed all improvements after the first year and 1/2 to 2 years.

I just joined and this is the first thread I've read. I didn't know about depersonalization. It explains a lot. Before I found out that I had this, I thought that it invented the term Brain Fog. It was so fitting.

I live in depersonalization, but with ocd you believe anything. Worst symptom by far. Trying new herbal treatment for lyme. Go on you tube and look up "Heather Levine story" and see how she coped and lived until she cleared. Be well

I work in a high level medical IT job (no ones life is at risk). My old job people could be on the table and if the equipment was down I had to get it up so I quite because of the obvious. My new medical IT job itself is not challenging and is way beneath me. The people around me can't do it for the life of them without being challenged or they group up. I stay there because it gets challenging during brain fog episodes and I need the money. I refuse to give up!
