Can someone suggest ways to get rid of constant brain fog. It feels like i am constantly drugged, not in reality, and a spaced out feeling and indoor lights look really bright.

Also, along with this comes eye pain and i have a really hard time focusing eyes or reading sometimes.

If so what helped you, and do you know what you can pinpoint this down to? The lyme or the company it brought with it?

It is the worst feeling ever. If i could get rid of that one symptom i'd feel like myself again. Sometimes i wonder if it will ever go away

(breaking up your post for easier reading for many here)

This is also my worst symptom. I believe it is a malarial or parasitic organism. Did you have a sudden onset of illness, I was violently ill in the beginning. Some say that means Babesia or malaria. I also have a crawling sensation at the crown of my head. I'm trying to figure out which infection is causing this. I agree it's a terrible feeling.

I had all those symptoms with Lyme disease. Be sure your doctor knows about those symptoms. Maybe a switch in medications would help.

Hi - we're all different when it comes to what works for each of us, but yes, I have been able to solve these symptoms in me, so hopefully you will find your answers too!

For me, the brain fog was due to low thyroid. You can have your TSH and T3 bloodlevels tested. If your T3 is low, that means hypothyroid, and our metabolism is operating at a very low level, like bears in hibernation, my doc told me.

I went on Armour thyroid and felt present again. Some people take Naturethroid. It's whatever we feel best on.

And I solved my eye problem too! I drink mangosteen juice, an anti-inflammatory juice found in health food stores and online. I like the Mango-Xan version, as it's the most tart of the blends.

In 24 hours time after starting the juice, my floaters, light sensitivity, eye muscle pain and blurred vision all stopped! I was so happy! Lyme disease inflames the eyes too, and this is an effective remedy for me.

The juice also caused my sinuses to run for 48 hours, my intestines to empty for 72 hours, and my gums to stop bleeding after 96 hours! I still take the juice for my eyes and also to keep my intestines regularly, like a baby's - ie it stops constipation.

Lyme patients usually get constipation or diarrhea, so I have found the juice to be a fix for that as well.

Toxicity, for me. Binders cleared my mind very fast, but I had to keep shifting binders, and taking them IN AMAZING amounts, many times a day, in order to have my brain back.

When I managed to find out what to take, in which amounts (I energy tested), my brain got really back again.

It is not only infection. It's basically toxins, specially BABESIA toxins, lyme and candida, and also bartonella TOXINS cause that for me (die off).

Viruses also cause that, and cleaning the body always helped me, really.

another thing that helped clearning the brain: tapping, all EFT points and trigger points. Combining tapping with binders, just a bit of killers, that was my magic solution!

I agree with brussels on this one. Toxicity is a big contributor to brain fog. The primary source of these toxins is dysbiosis (which includes candida) and perhaps a little bit of lyme and other co-infections. Also some drugs can prevent the liver from properly excreting toxins, so they build up in your system. This also happens when they get stuck in enterohepatic circulation.

The best way to solve toxicity is to remove the source. Be it from food, medication, or dysbiosis (stop feeding the bad bugs in your gut!). Also use binders and fiber to prevent enterohepatic circulation. Plant based foods provide the body with the minerals to do cellular detoxification.
Be aware though, detox symptoms can be harsh!

Brussels how interesting re the LARGE amounts needed. I've not noticed much with the average doses of Takesumi. Maybe I give up on things because the doses are wrong. What did you use?

S13 - gut dysbiosis is what you are referring to?

Going gluten free really helped lift both pain and brain fog for me. Of course, with lyme / TBD on board it was not the key in and of itself, still very important.

You might get a test for genetic celiac.

Also consider dairy, corn. And all food additives.

yes gut dysbiosis. And especially candida and other fungal forms, because they are known to produces lots of toxic substances, including many neurotoxins.

Candida's role is underestimated when it comes to lyme and chronic disease imo.

Even Klinghardt mentioned this in one of his 2014 presentations:
"Dr. Klinghardt initially underestimated the role of Candida in chronic illness. It is the only bug that secretes over 600 known biotoxins and can modulate every aspect of our system."

Phosphatidylserine helped me. My LLMD recommended it and it worked.

Not sure I can post dosages on supplements but I started with 1000mg then tapered down. I was told I can start with 1500mg.

I know it sounds high. It worked for me. Start lower if it's a concern. We're all different.

It was recommended to me years ago to ask my doc for Klonopin.

It worked almost immediately for me and now I take it when the spacy tingly out of world/body feeling starts to happen.

Only thing that works for me.
