The researchers found no consistent changes in thinking and memory linked to changes in hormone levels from month to month. “In most women, the menstrual cycle does not influence cognitive performance in a negative way,” Leeners said.

No Such Thing as Menstrual Memory Fog WEDNESDAY, July 5, 2017 Contrary to what some have been led to believe, a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle doesn’t seem to dampen her thinking skills, no matter what time of the month it is. No Such Thing as Menstrual Memory Fog.

Many women will complain about their monthly cramps, the food cravings, and the memory lapses during their menstrual cycle. But, when it comes to the brain, fluctuating hormone levels are not behind the bouts of sluggishness or forgetfulness.

Memory symptoms at this time are not about the level of estrogen in your saliva or blood, so if you keep checking those levels, understand that memory problems are due to the changing levels of estrogen that cause memory symptoms at this time.

  • Brain fogs feels like your far away. Like your there and you can’t reach it. Can’t reach the word or make sense of something that you normally know. Its a lighter version of being in the sunken place(get out movie)

  • i feel like i’m kind of detached like i’m in a dream and i cannot think or process what i see/hear. i used to be a straight-a student but now i’m failing all my classes

  • I don’t do starches, dairy, processed foods or drinks, medicines, sugar or artificial sugars. Do lots of raw vegetables, and homemade apple cider vinegars, organic herbal dressings, teas and tonics. Feel pretty good at age 75. Need more b12 and more exercise though!

  • This guys shooting in the dark like most people who talk about brain fog. The main reason for brain fog is long term use of certain medications. I hear a lot of experts say inflammation but its the other way round. Inflammation worsens with brain fog its not the cause. So what happens in the brain to result in fog dopamine dysfunction. Not very low dopamine but dysfunction. That means the reward system which dopamine stimulates is not functioning properly because dopamine is not being stimulated itself. So what stimulates dopamine, its neurosteroids. Certain drugs inhibit neurosteroids indefinitely even after stopping these drugs.

  • 1:09 Im literally going through that blurry stuff right now! Yooooo what, this is wild. Then again, I gave up weed, pmo, caffeine, smoking, deleted multiple social media apps and other quick dopamine fixes.

  • I feel confused,
    I feel like im not the one whos controlling myself, like im just watching myself doing something.
    I always cant find the words i want to explain myself

  • Until watching this video, I never knew I seem to have developed Brain Fog. On certain days, I can’t think through things, which even a child could. It’s as if I’m dumb blanked, has it happened with anybody else. Could this be due to my lifestyle? A help would definitely be appreciated (please)

  • I feel like it affects my vision as well I look at everything in around and everything is blurry almost like I can’t get out of my head space or something. I think it’s depth of vision like when you stare through your finger and can see through it but i can only see my finger and I can’t see everything in detail.

  • But I was soooo happy with my pizza and my beer and a damn panic attack happened and now because of some goofy ass intruder called stress I can’t eat this shit no more��

  • About how long does it take to relearn? My brain fog has gone away thanks to your advice, however, I still have short term memory loss.

  • Cut all gluten and sugar HFCS), use paleo diet or only eat safe raw food. For brain synopsis and stucture recovery 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (most powerful nootropic compared to anything else) a day half first think AM and end of day before bed other half in warm drink. Done permanent recovery inside 4 weeks to 3 months. It took me almost 5 decades of personal research to get to the recovery level reached today, damage was not just caused by diet but a combo of toxin from dental and vaccines to lead paints and toys etc. Everyones body differs but this could also help you if you have nothing more to lose.

  • Do you work with people Toby? Im in the UK, currently not working, so no routine and am very isolated, everything is compounding everything else and I feel totally overwhelmed, very poor sleep and there’s so much conflicting information and advice out there. Where I live there’s no public transport, no shop, no community and without the right support I feel totally stuck and very foggy….warm wishes, Jackie

  • Your mind can not be still,
    You react intensely for small matters
    You feel high as drunk
    You can no retain info
    You cannot come up with simple words that has been used for entire life.

  • Guys go on reddit and type in brain fog forum, it’s a whole community of people with this issue that are trying to get rid of their dizziness and brain fog. I’ve had brain fog since I was 15 years old (23 now), and I finally did some deep research in this and it could be a lot of things that are causing this. It could be your gut health that is causing it, it could be your posture isn’t good at you need to see a chiropractor regularly until it’s fixed etc. just go to the forum and you will read posts from people who fully cured their brain fog! Much love to you all

  • Words come out wrong sometimes too? Do you feel like you have a neurological problem? I do, and anxiety makes it worse, anybody feel like that?

  • This happens to me every other day but sometimes in fine sometimes my brain Is foggy and sometimes maybe heavy when I want to write a song I would say I need to learn more words I forgot some words I learn that I want to write it here or say but there are days that I know alot of words and I am talkative
    There are times when I have a brain fog I don’t speak I feel dumb and don’t know what words should I say its hard to process
    I need to get rid of this �� its like living but not actually living I feel like a robot not functioning in some days

  • THIS IS TRUE. I FELT SOMETHING IS WORNG WITH MY BRAIN. I WAS SO SCARED.

    I Felt as if I am experiencing some kind of high from some drugs. But obviously that was not even near to true.

    I don’t feel like myself as if I am me, but I am also not me. It’s weird to explain. I got my blood tests done and it showed that I have problems/imbalance with my thyroid. The docs says it’s happening because of it. She prescribed a med. haven’t started to have it yet. I am currently typing this with the feeling of being aware that I still have a foggy brain/mind. Will update once I get better from the meds.

  • what really helped me!?.. I first have to honestly and whole-heared thank Someone on YT i unfortunately do not remember who for giving me the exercise hint.

    1. Exeecise in the morning before breakfest.

    Other ‘Creations’ that helped a lot:

    2. Learning and Structering Knowledge. ( in my case im a curious person who loves to learn and i rediscocered this love after decades of unaware adhd problems)

    a side note: i also do consume knowlwdge and imputs conciously and minimalistically. less is more. its astonishing how this helps. Try to be selective what you read watch talk etc… believe me i had decades of Music TV Net SocMed Overstimulation in my teen years. its kinda fun but the new perception is also gold. no brain fog no problems with adhd despite not taking meds anymore. ( this just my experiemce, no advice, i share this because it might help someome). Vera F. Birkenbihl wrote a good book on learning its called sth like from brainowner to brainuser. it inspires to gain knowledge and fun with. imagine one would train for millionaires:)

    3. Writing down every day a few times what i do and writing down in the evening what i am planing for tomorrow ( i am surprised how much this helps and gives a feel of organisation and different perception of time)

    Be strong and rock on \m/

  • Why would you wanna go easy on your mental RAM? By straining your mental RAM you can actually make it grow right? Feel like setting a reminder somewhere is spoiling myself.

  • I have this brain fog about and year now and I feel as if I’m being slaved suffering everyday I wish I could feel better for even once my whole life feels crashing ��

  • Masturbation is not the cause of brain fog, but it does worsen it. Why, because theres a dopamine drop after orgasm and also because estrogen rises after orgasm in those that have brain fog.

  • https://youtu.be/zUKBBcZ26BQ I hope this helps to understand at what stage most people are with brain fog.. I deal it too 3 weeks now.

  • I can totally relate that it actually hurts. Experiencing brain fog during critical times of your career can be really stressful. I know that I have significant thoughts to share, however, I cannot verbalize it well. I wish I could eventually get rid of this.

  • For me this stemmed from pretty (covert at first) then severe abuse. Now its EVERY second of every day with a mixture of dissociation. NOTHING brings me out of it. Major brain disconnect.

  • Eat high fat diet ( by fat i mean animal fat, your brain is made out from 60 70 % of cholesterol). Tried for myself I would me much grounded, calmer and able to take stress in everyday life much better. That s all.

  • The second more than 1 person starts talking, my brain just goes (///?????////). Same when I’m asked to recall any information I’ve gained in the past. It’s a vacuum. There’s nothing there.

  • Do you ever just look in the mirror between your morning pee and your bowl of coco pops, gripping the sink intensely and say, ‘My name’s Jennnifer’ repeatedly until you lose concentration and are consumed by the fog?

  • I’m on my own journey to fixing my fog and have found a lot of helpful advice, resources and overall a great community on the brainfog subreddit that I recommend everyone who struggles themselves to check out. It has allowed me to kickoff a, what I hope to be, more effective recovery for myself.

  • I exactly feels this way and I’m undergoing anxiety because of this very issue all the time, it’s like unending circle.. ��

    She comprehended really well which is the exact thing I wanted to achieve..

    My thoughts are always rushy, I am thinking too many things at the same time. My daily job become difficult because of this. It’s hard for me to give interviews and switch jobs because of this. It’s real struggle.

    If someone has any idea to treat this, kindly let me know. Thanks.

  • I can hardly watch a movie these days. It’s not that I don’t understand the meaning of the words, I just can’t stay focus and I have to try really hard to structure the words and it takes longer time to process it. Sometimes I can’t follow the speed when people talk, I’ll just nod my head and pretend I understand the conversation because I felt embarrassed to show people I’m lost.
    I work in a company with hundreds of staffs, its really hard for me to recall names. I get so stressed just trying to recall someone’s name but always ended up saying “oh hey..” rather than calling someone’s name.
    I used to be good in memorising lyrics when I was younger. But now I can’t even understand what the singer sings about after listening because my brain can’t process the lyrics like I used to.
    I keep questioning myself everyday. Why I’m so slow in thinking? Do I have learning difficulties? But I’m completely normal sometimes. I just to be very creative and sharing a lot of interesting ideas but now I feel like my brain is shutting down. I have speech difficulty. Can’t speak out my mind, words.
    Even just reading a simple instruction, eg to cook something, assemble something. I have to stay focus to read every single words but my brain still can’t process it:(
    The list can goes on and on..

  • I encountered brain fog a couple months ago after I noticed I was eating too many carbs. My brain fog got so bad to the point where I would hit myself because I thought I wasn’t living real life. I knew what someone would say before they said it I couldn’t have a normal conversation with anyone because I knew everything they were going to say. So I started video taping myself every day and my progress and about day 8 everything was normal again.

  • Looking through the comments instead of listening to him �� my sub conscious always tries to distract me without even realising it

  • Brain fog is a big problem for me! but I think you can get better at it. Also, my memory course will also give you great strategies to improve memory and remember more. Get it ihere http://www.blackbeltmemory.com

  • Wow. You’re so extremely blessed…simply having brain fog would be a gift and dream come true for myself….

    Someone who struggles with clinical depression and anxiety can’t remember their name practically…

    Seems very unfair…

  • That’s a killer background dude. Things that trigger brainfog for me are:

    1. Pollution
    2. Flour, rice, quinoa, beans, chips
    3. pesticides
    4. Coffee

    Stuff that helps:
    Salad, spirulina, watermelon, milk, cheese, coconuts, sex, sleep, fish, chicken, exercise, gardening

  • I got told I have sleep apnea that’s why I was so tired n had brain fog but then even when I went through treatment n it still didn’t go away I never meant anyone who had it as bad as me or exhausted anyone else??

  • want to appreciate Dr. Isah Johnson for using his herbal medicine to cure my wife fibroid virus, since 3years ago my wife have been having this fibroid disease and it have been giving my wife challenges, we were so perplexed cause my wife have taken several drugs to be cure but every of our effort was in-vain, a fateful morning i was browsing through the internet then i saw several testimonies about Dr. Isah Johnson curing people of their fibroid disease immediately i contacted doctor.

  • Brain fog sucks, when i say suck it does really sucks. So i always stay up for 20 hours each day ( from 6 am to 2 pm ) I always do that, everyday, and suddenly someday i felt something strange in my thinking and my speaking, when i try to speak, i always put my words on the wrong order, also i keep stuttering when i’m speaking, i need to wait for some moments to think if my sentences make sense or not, i keep speaking on the wrong way, what i mean is like when you want to talk about something what’s on your mind, the words that came out from your mouth is not the same as what’s on your mind, it only affects on my English language, i’m an Indonesian native speaker and it only affect on english language ( Second language i learnt ) also now it’s starting to affect on my Indonesian language, maybe because i kept speaking english rather than Indonesia, i though by speaking english could fix my english back, maybe because of that i’m getting worse on my main language, also i remember before i had this disease, i was exercising in cold temperature ( In a room with AC on ) and i was exercising in a room like that, so maybe because of i keep praticing in cold temperature, i have brain fog now, i do not know though, i will check to the doctor today, also there’s another sympton i have which makes me cannot speak naturally, i mean is now i have to focus on the words that i’m speaking, ussualy when you speak you doesn’t have to focus on your words or to make sentences, you could make sentences correctly and quickly, but now i’m starting to lose my abilities to do that, good thing though i could write properly rather than speaking, it’s like speaking is harder for me to think of the right sentences to talk, it’s like i already knew what i am talking about, but the same time i have to focus on what i am talking about, very annoying. It’s also hard for me to understand some words in subtitles, maybe when i’m watching movie, it’s hard for me to understand the words, even if it uses my native language for the subtitles, still hard. Anyways i’m going to check to the doctor, thanks for reading all of this useless crap that you probably don’t want to read, wish me luck and pls pray so i will not get diagnosed with brain fog, also i’m only 14, so please pray for me, ok thank you and cya ��

  • Hey!!! Do have any preference for my illness… I’m sick at it…. I’ve been in brain chronic for about 2yrs every 24 7… I feel like my brain dying… I don’t know what’s happening inside my brain…. Doctors can’t even diagnosed it whenever I speak to them… I have spoken to some doctors they only says that I have any stress……. I don’t feel myself usual like I was before it happened to me…… Help me if you could……..

    Thank You

  • I just discovered what brain fog is by searching up the symptoms I’m getting on a daily basis and it’s so hard to focus on what I’m hearing/reading or even what I’m looking at, sometimes I forget how to spell simple words and my thoughts are all over the place. This is ruining my life

  • Good news! My brain fog healed
    after 3 months of rigorous regime. The biggest reason for my brain fog was my leaky
    gut. I want to give some information for those who are interested. My focus was
    on getting rid of toxins and free radicals out of my brain and body, and
    restore my gut health. I have made many changes to my lifestyle and have kept a
    comprehensive dairy of how I felt, what I ate etc. so that I can refer back to
    it to see which foods cause poblems for me and how certain things (such as
    exercise) affect my mood, energy and brain fog. The biggest obstacle that we
    face in our health journey is time. Everyone’s body is different and the time
    that it will take to clean itself will also be different. My biggest advice is
    to continue to push forward with your diet, exercise, sleep, and positive
    mental state no matter what. Do not let your brain fool you to give up,
    continue regardless of whether you feel motivated or not. People who get real
    results are those who can push forward regardless of how they feel at the
    moment. Drink plenty of water and eat a lot of veggies to help your body get
    rid of the nasty stuff faster. I have been consuming half a tablespoon of
    turmeric with a pinch of black pepper, a teapoon of omega-3, multivitamin and a
    lot of coconut oil on a daily basis. I have also been drinking one glass of
    kefir and eating around an ounce of sauerkraut per day to cultivate a helthy
    gut flora. I cut out gluten, all the junk food and to a large extent diary. I
    have also cut out many foods that are not allowed for those with psoriasis
    (such as tomatoes, potatoes etc.). I have cut pretty much all the sugar except
    fruits and black chocolate (20 grams per day). I have been drinking american
    saffron tea, it has helped immensely to get rid of free radicals in my brain
    and body.

     

    Do not forget that brain fog may be caused by various
    reasons. Make a lot of research and write down every suggestion that you hear
    and see on a notebook. Keep trying those suggestions until you get your first
    results, and believe me, it is very likely that you will get them if you are
    willing to make some changes to your lifestyle. The fact that you get any
    results is a sign that you are on the right track and that you should continue
    to do whatever you are doing. Do not expect miracles on the first weeks or even
    months of the regime, although they do happen occasionally. Please make sure
    that you stick to your diet, regular sleeping times, exercise and cleansing
    (drinking lots of water and eating lots of veggies and fruits) no matter what. You
    should also be optimistic about the regime and that it will work. Try new stuff
    in addition to those five fundamental things that I just mentioned if you do
    not notice any results in the first month. Do not forget that initially your
    condition will get worse, and this may last for a number of months depending on
    your body. You will experience some relief at times, and sometimes you may feel
    amazing, but in many cases your brain fog will return again and again. It is
    critical to not give up on those moments. Your body works in cycles, and after
    a cycle of cleaning you will feel good. As soon as a new cycle begins, you will
    see your symptoms get worse.

     

    The last point that I want to make is that you should
    always be easy on yourself and flexible. Do not feel bad and give up if you
    occasionally stray from your regime, it happens to pretty much every human
    being on the planet who tries to achieve something big. Start with small steps,
    and do not try to apply all the changes in one go, because it will suffocate
    you and you will soon give up. Our bodies are very resistant to change,
    especially if it comes in a short period of time.

     

    Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions that
    you have. I hope that this advice changes your perspective on the issue of
    brain fog. If someone like me could get rid of it, there is no reason why you
    should not be able to get rid of it too. Cheers.

  • I never heard of this until I had a stroke. Now I battle this daily. I never had it, now it’s a struggle everyday. I’m 41 years old and act like I’m over 80…

  • I’m almost positive that I suffer from having brain fog now because most of the symptoms are exactly what I feel. It’s been happening for years now and the only way I could explain it to people is that it feels blurry and foggy in the front of my brain. The only symptom that she didn’t explain that I have is the lack of motivation and excitement. I used to be super bubbly and got excited for every little thing, now it feels like I’m excited for things but there’s a thick layer of fog blocking my perception. I feel like I’m just missing out on all the little things, and I am becoming a worse person because of it. I don’t have the motivation to be super kind and caring like I used to be. I don’t know just if anyone feels this way, I kinda just wanna feel like I am not the only one going through this. Does anyone just have any tips?

  • I had brain fog at school I’ll be looking at a poem and my vision goes blurry and letters come together and and certain words pop out more than others but I don’t read or understand what the word is I find that it happens more often in places that I’m not enjoying and would rather be doing something else

  • Is there a correlation between eating grains (gluten) and brain fog? I briefly was informed about a study which was conducted on individuals who have Celiac disease and to cut the story short results showed that cutting out gluten improved cognitive function. I just want your opinion on this as you know with any study there are limitations. TIA ��

  • Really appreciate the message in your video… discover.. identify.. what works for you! Listen to your body and respond appropriately. We are all each capable of “healing” ourselves. Thank you. Sleep well, eat to live, engage your mind in active thought and critical thinking, and likewise your body.. move it. Sleep movement nutrition and reconditioning the brain.

  • Aspartame for whatever reason gives me horrible brain fog and depression for days after consuming it. I didn’t realize I actually consume as much MSG as I actually do because I’m seeing it’s in salad dressings, canned foods etc etc not just Chinese food�� I went undiagnosed with celiac disease for over 30 years and had severe brain fog especially as a child. I didn’t know brain fog had a name to it lol.

  • I THOUGHT my type 1 diabetes was making me cloudy headed but my numbers have been pretty good the last few months and my brain fog hasn’t gotten better. I cry all the time I feel like I can’t think ������

  • lack of sleep is a huge problem for me. REcently in the past year ive developed an inability to have long sleep. Id wake up after 4 hrs…go to bathroom, try to sleep again…and sometimes i fall asleep, but other times id be up for another 1hr or 2 before i sleep again. By then its around 6 am, light is pouring in, and Im trying to sleep again. I get maybe 2hrs more before im up. So on average im getting like 5.5hrs of sleep, 7 on my best days…and i require 8 hrs to be fully alert. Its soo bad. Ive tried exercise, diets, and it doesnt work…i have a chaotic mind that seems to get more active the moment i put my head on the pillow. Its not like im stress, its like im just anxious cause I wasted the whole day, and got nothing really productive done. Its like a cycle i cant break

  • You gave me hope!! I didn’t know what the heck was going on with me.. went in the doctors for help.. came out with a ton of antidepressants.. I was very discouraged.. this isn’t easy to deal with all day.. thanks.. so much!!!

  • “schedule your day”
    That’s true, I have so many things on my e calendar I can’t even look clearly on it ������

  • I have had the worst brain fog for 4 years, in top of that I have vestibular migraines and acute rhinitis and tinitus. I also have IBS. I cannot eat a thing without getting serious brain fog, whereby I cannot even remember something 10s after reading. I cannot eat dairy, gluten, sugar, spicy stuff, onions, sage, fruit etc… Its a fucking nightmare, it’s destroyed my life. I work in IT and cannot remember half the stuff I have learned. I have no job.. Thing is, I’m fittish and a confident person when not ha ing Brain fog. One of the worst triggers for me are vitamins, if I take a Vit b tablet, my brain really suffers… My life is hell. If it was not for my beautiful partner, I would have fucking off’ed myself by now. My brain feels like its shrunk and on fire all the time… Ugh.

  • I think I might have brain fog, but I always thought it was a blob of trapped emotion, maybe from trauma. When it is really intense my inner dialogue will try and run some kind of inner narrative about what it may mean using song lyrics or just memories of stuff different people said all glued together to make some kind of reason pattern, it can be quite scary ��

  • WOW, no wonder I have a problem with brain fog. I am trying to control my weight so i drink tons of diet soda and use lots of artificial sweeteners. Now I’m going to switch to water!

  • One thing that has helped me is lemon juice. Adding some lemon juice to your water really helps your brain get more oxygen and can eliminate your brain fog. I buy an organic bottle of pure lemon juice and add some to my water throughout the day. And everything this guy says is golden. I would just add some lemon juice to your water as number 6! For nutrition, if you really want to get your mental health back, go plant-based. (Vegan) If you’re eating toxic foods that damages your gut, it will make getting rid of brain fog a lot more difficult. Avoid processed refined sugars as well.

  • Nuts and other natural fruits also enhances functions of brain, but this proper meditation can do really very well for any health problem:

  • My 7 yo son has this problem and it’s driving us all crazy. He has trouble with concentration, understanding, attention, memory making everyday life soo difficult.. ��

  • I had really bad brain fog till I discovered I have celiac disease. This autoimmune disease causes brain fog when I eat gluten. I’ve avoided it for 2 years and the brain fog went away in a few weeks. Now I’m suffering from brain fog again and I’m sure it’s due to mold in the environment. Thanks for the video. I also claim to work hard to have a good memory and this fog makes me feel so dumb. The struggle is real. I literally just drove in a circle for 25 min and then couldn’t get the pump at the gas station to work for 3 minutes till I realized I didn’t pay yet.

  • I also have issues with brain fog. I’m a teacher so while I have students, my brain fog can effect them, and I can’t let that happen. For me the three biggest factors to combat brain fog are diet, sleep and posture.

    Some people tell me they need the caffeine to function. If you need it, it is time to ditch it. I do drink coffee, but not every day. And I’m drinking it because I LIKE it, not because I need it. Same with the greasy, fatty foods. You talk about this a lot in your videos too. Eat a healthy diet does not mean getting rid of all those tasty foods, just limit them. I had a really good burger a couple days ago, and I did not have brain fog after. Why? Because I don’t eat greasy foods every day, and I didn’t eat too much of it. I eat healthy foods most of the time.

    Sleep is so important. If I get a good nights sleep, I am so much more alert. Yes 8 hours is important, but what is more important is the QUALITY of the sleep. If I’m “sleeping” for 8 hours, but I don’t get that good REM sleep, it does not matter that I got 8 hours. It was not quality sleep, so I’m foggy in the morning. Exercising both my brain and my body helps with this. Getting out and chasing the dog around, training her, mucking out the chicken coop, all these things help with that body part, while I can get things done that need to be done, and lead to better sleep. And like you have mentioned, reading. Or if you are a YouTube watcher like me, then watch videos that fill your brain with knowledge instead of garbage.

    The last is posture. If I catch myself slouching a bunch, I also notice that I’m not getting much done. Sit up, or better, stand up, fix the posture, and I can function so much better.

  • Hello I’m 16 And I’ve been dealing with this now for about 1 month now. Stress brought this on and Depression because I’m dealing with Grief Dealing with a loss of a guardian. This video helps so much thanks so much! Your awesome!

  • Crap there’s aspartate in the magnesium powder I usually take every night. May be causing my brain fog, but I take it to help me sleep

  • Does jelquing increase brain fog? My gut instinct is yes, but some people talk about “post-jelque clarity” so I guess it varies from person to person?

  • Thank you so very much, please keep up the great work. it’s so very helpful during this life changes. Brain fog is scary. I’m eating plant based whole food, take bio identical hormones replacement, vitamin and supplements and am still going through this nightmare, including fatigue.

  • Dont watch porn and always have a good night sleep
    These two will help you to recover with a month
    And you will be surprised trust me

  • Everywhere i go i find there is no cure! Just assumptions! Like hey if you do this it may help. If you do this may cure it or It helped me but it comes back every now and then. Like it sucks as a stay at home mom dealing with this and trying to maintain. How i got it. I would get nervous to drive because i am 25 years old learning to drive so my doctor said anxiety and depression so they gave me alexapro i took it for three days and got brain fog i stopped right then and there and it has been 30 days and i feel like i am living in hell.��

  • can’t seem to read books or focus on things (even things I love) it physically feels like my brain is cooking. I’ve become terrified I have Alzheimer’s and live in fear

  • This is really challenging for women in fields where having a quick sharp memory is vital.
    I made a med error once because of it. Luckily, no one was harmed, but it scared me.

  • I don’t sleep very deep to 2 dreams that come true which are always negative dreams so I still go to sleep in a deep sleep secondly I tried fasting fasting really helps to clear brain fog I miss you all those other artificial staff reacts on my body so lovely reject those things I can’t eat anything with artificial flavourings and sweetness I get for a migraine within 5 minutes the sleepers what I need the most sleep

  • In regards to memory. I’ve been losing more and more of my short term memory. I’m especially concerned about my working memory or the lack there of.
    I can’t read a single instinctual sentence then recall the steps indicated, even if it’s something fimular to me, something simple and easy to follow, or something thats quick requiring just a couple of steps.
    Ive conceded to taking notes, even with a single sentence.
    Sometimes Ill forget what I was reading, why i was reading it or sadly, I’d complenty forget that i was ever reading.
    I have notice myself zoning out, getting drowsy and knock out or having an urge to write something down that is completely illrevelant which takes me away from what I was trying to do.
    Just about any needless unimportant distraction will pull me away without me even noticing it, like I’m not in my mind or body. Ill eventually catch on and snap myself out of it then return to the subject at hand. Which is reading and understanding a single sentence.
    Does this have anything to do with menopause?
    I’ve shared this issue with my husband, children, primary care doctor and a mental health provider, all were dismissive and not interested and offered no reasonable explanations, causes, solutions or any suggestions or recommendations.
    Ive close up and become withdrawn. Nobody hears me, notices, understands or cares.
    I’m consumed with sadness, hopelessness and dispare.
    I know I’m not stupid.
    I know I’m not mking this up.
    I know I’m not attention seeking.
    I’m scared, alone & i do feel sorry for myself.

  • You do great videos but this time I don’t like It. It is too general content, nothing new. I’ fighting brain fog and I recomend the book “Brain at work” with lots of explenations about the brain function and how to improve it use.

  • I am from America. Thank you…I am experiencing this trouble. I mixed up names…my secretary laugh at me…and made fun of me. I went home and cried. It was very upsetting.

  • Its 7:11, l cant belive I’m hearing this…still watching…he started with CFS, serious condition, then he is talking about not even healthy leaving, just pleasant leaving….for those who’s leaving isn’t pkrasunt at all, and even this is an underestimation…..well, the video just ended…with wishing good appetite ����������

  • Many thanks, been searching for “power flow diagram of induction motor” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Fiylianaton Glorious Framework (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? It is a smashing exclusive product for discovering how to hack your flow state and succeed minus the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my co-worker got amazing results with it.

  • I needed this video so badly when I was a student. My whole highschool study was fucked up because of brain fog. Multiple factors were at play. Luckily, I now take care of my nutrition and sleep mandatorily 7 hours.

  • I experienced anxiety then depression episodes this past five months. I slowly overcome my depression and take cognitive behavioral therapy to counter my negative thoughts and anxiety. This week, there is something trgiggering me. I can counter my negative thoughts ( which is part of my healing) but my problem now is that my feeling is not responding to my affirmitations and that influences my mind. I started ruminating again that what if i will always be like this. What if i turn myself having personality disorder like multiple disorder. What if i go crazy. What if i will hallucinate things….. Please♥️♥️ any suggestion what i should do because im not feeling good right now.

  • Is it possible to only have this when u get nervous?? like i feel like if im paying attention in class and taking notes, and the professor callss on me for a simple answer, and my mind goes completely blank, i almost freeze and can’t think of what he was just talking about even tho i know the answer,,, i dont have a bad case if i do, but i can see why it would effect people A LOT,,

  • i saw your The Supernormal Stimuli comic: and what l think of it than is not every one have a cool lives like some ppl nationalities they can go out and have fun and meet ppl…some of them porn in a grave with very strict parents..they cant escape..so the forced to those things cuz it is that they will ever have..

  • Considering that severe brain fog, or even regular brain fog comes with irritability and a difficulty concentrating, I have but one question to ask you. Did you make this video just for the sake of content, or did you really want to help people? If it was for people who are suffering from brain fog, would be nice to have a fast fact filled PSA type video.

  • oh finally someone who understands what im going through everyday….it took me 5 minutes to write this text coz i kept re-reading if im writing it correctly…..the struggle is real i need help.

  • -Clear out possessions
    -Escape materialism
    -Get off social media
    -Stop watching TV programming
    Doesn’t mean that you can’t listen/watch music or movies. All you have to remember that nothing is set in front of you out of pure coincidence or for only “entertainment”.

  • I only feel the top of my head feel empty and I can’t think straight. And the front of my head feels tingly, but sometimes the back of my brain feels empty�� my other symptoms are, I will faint if I think about something disturbing to me

  • @Shuttzi….first give your life to Jesus
    HE died for your sins for you and for you because you’re a sinner.

  • I started having brain fog a few months ago sometimes I feel okay and could think clearly but the next time I can’t. I don’t what to treat this help

  • My problem is I may get 8 hours of sleep but it’s into the afternoon after being awake until 4:00 5:00 o’clock in the morning. What herbs can I take to help? And any meditation recommended videos, do they work?

  • Hey!!! Do have any preference for my illness… I’m sick at it…. I’ve been in brain chronic for about 2yrs every 24 7… I feel like my brain dying… I don’t know what’s happening inside my brain…. Doctors can’t even diagnosed it whenever I speak to them… I have spoken to some doctors they only says that I have any stress……. I don’t feel myself usual like I was before it happened to me…… Help me if you could……..

    Thank You

  • Hey, whoever is reading this you will get through this, Jesus loves you and he’s right with ya, I’m currently going through this, and I feel so at peace knowing he’s got this defeated already! God bless you ��✝️��

  • “according to the internet…” when people don’t want to cite Wikipedia. The fact is that you did a great job and I couldn’t make a video like this.

  • I just discovered what brain fog is by searching up the symptoms I’m getting on a daily basis and it’s so hard to focus on what I’m hearing/reading or even what I’m looking at, sometimes I forget how to spell simple words and my thoughts are all over the place PLEASE HELP

  • This has helped me so much! I’ve been doing all these, but then I somehow forget daily that I need to do these things lol. I’m about to take a critical care test for nursing in 40 min and this helped a lot… I hope!! Lol. But you are a beautiful man btw.

  • Idk if this is brain fog but the past few days i cant concentrate or focus and everytime i do something i have to ask myself why i was doing it or go back to check if i did it. Idk how to explain it but it is really bothering me

  • Personally, the recent events that have been happening around the world really messed with my head and I felt as if I was stuck in a dream /not reality but I’m slowly getting better.Basically you need to give your brain something to do or else it will just wander off and usually brain fog will come with it.So yea just my experience:)

  • thanks for sharing man! i have the feeling that listening to music 24/7 when outside is actually doing the same 3:58 at least for me personally

  • It’s great to realize so many I can relate to, I’ve had sinus congestion’s since childhood and I failed academically due to lack of mental clarity I struggled to learn and memorize, I still do. I always felt I was incredibly stupid and lived passively, like a Zombie, I have many moments where I feel life isn’t real and if I should end it. I even told a colleague about Brain Fog and why I am mentally how I am, and was given a sarcastic response.. Which made me feel worse and it made me question my intellect even more.

    As I come to be more self aware I’ve improved my sense of well being despite still having Brain Fog. You have to accept it and accept many people will be ignorant.

  • My type of brain fog is weird. If I’m watching movies, I have no problem concentrating. But when it’s time to read and type reports (my work) my neck starts to hurt, the back of my head feels confused, I just can’t think as I used to do before. I am so so tired. I feel like this will be my new normal and I’ll never get myself back

  • Hey, just wanted to let you know that I like your content it’s better than most of the self-help on YouTube because you keep it simple and realistic, so it’s even doable for an old married guy like me! I shared this particular video with some coworkers because we often complain of brain fog or being “fried” towards the end of the day. Thanks again and keep it up!

  • Well I have extreme brainfog thanks to my generalized anxiety, severe depression, chronic pain and chronic fatigue which lowered my school grades and I also had to quit school cause of my physical pain. No diet has ever helped my brain fog, and I’ve tried many. Only thing that helps me is exercise and thats extremely painful to do woop. Nice video for people who have brainfog for other reasons, but if its medical reasons this ain’t gonna do anything.

  • Really appreciate the small jokes and outtakes sprinkled throughout the video. Makes it easier to pay attention especially to overstimulated people like me.

  • I was diagnosed with brain fog 3 months ago and was told I have 6 months to live by my doctor. Luckily I met a multimillionaire who asked me if I would jump in a volcano to save the Wapuhi people, all expenses paid. On the boat on my way to the island I met the love of my life. My doctor told me brain fog is incurable so I’m living each day to the fullest, with my wife and the Wapuhi peoples.

  • Hey!!! Do have any preference for my illness… I’m sick at it…. I’ve been in brain chronic for about 2yrs every 24 7… I feel like my brain dying… I don’t know what’s happening inside my brain…. Doctors can’t even diagnosed it whenever I speak to them… I have spoken to some doctors they only says that I have any stress……. I don’t feel myself usual like I was before it happened to me…… Help me if you could……..

    Thank You

  • I started to experience brain fog after I got sick, I it was like a bad case of the flue. I felt depressed, tired, or like I was sleep walking. I never felt normal. Then I started working out drinking water, and trying open windows, and clean my space. I also started to clean my diet.

  • I am a priest in Brazil, and I was a monk for many years of the Order of Saint Bento, Benedictine monks, a charism focused on the contemplative life of prayer and meditation; I have followed your videos to practice English, you have good diction, it helps me understand English better, God bless you. Thank you.

  • I don’t understand a word you’re saying. Brain fog or accent? (“Americans and the English are separated by a common language.”) Actually, fine video, mate. Cheerio!

  • You can get brainfog by beiing abused. Watch videos about narcissistic personality disorder. For example Sarah speaks or assc direct, ross rosenberg etc.

  • My brain fog is SO bad! I am able to sleep from 10:15 PM to 6:00 AM but wake up never rested. 6 years now it’s soooo hard. I do this every day even on weekends.

  • 1. Good Sleep
    2. Regular Movement through the day
    3. Good nutritious wholesome food
    4. Re-conditioning of the brain. Use it or loose it.

  • Hi, some people say intermittent fasting can help if you have that condition. I been reading a lot of stories and videos and not only of brain fog. IF has change my life too, hope u find the cure or try to do Intermittent fasting, but when you eat always provide healthy food too with magensium, potasio, vitamin C. Check this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65Xlk9_4vxY

  • Take 3 table spoon of coconut oil daily. You will see big difference. Coconut oil can improve Alzheimers and dementia and brain fog, memory improvements!! Why not try!

  • Not only do I have sleep apnea but I currently have anxiety. Both are messing up my clarity. Thankfully I’m getting a cpap machine soon and I hope it helps.

  • It’s hard to do things that aren’t enjoyable at all, I can edit and animate passion projects but doing practice exams I probably couldn’t answer questions with the explanation next to me

  • Thank you this is very helpful and accurate. I’ve been to the cfs specialist and they say similar. You have been able to word it much better for me. I was irritated to see the lack of understanding of chronic fatigue in the comments and stopped reading them. This had genuinely helped me learn how to manage my condition as has your other videos and I’m grateful you’ve done them x

  • good video i had thought of most of these but i hadn’t thought of blood flow. i have started trying to exercise a little bit for muscle atrophy. the moving around may sound like the hardest one to others but i think its probably the easiest because you only need to get the blood flowing just go to the bathroom or give your arms a little shake. the sleep one is by far the hardest because its something none of us can control, we can go to bed as early as we like but it doesn’t stop us laying there un-able to sleep for 5 hours and then waking up every hour and having interrupted sleep.

  • Glad I found you, Ron. My brain fog has been so intense that it feels like my whole head is fried. I’ve had problems with anxiety and depression off and on for decades, and the overwhelming stress that it creates makes it seem like all I can do is draw one big blank, which compounds the stress all the more to what feels like some kind of cerebral paralysis. Thanks for putting a voice to this for me because I really do feel like I’m approaching my wits end. And thanks for presenting a plan to put into action. I find my foggy episodes utterly humiliating, which does nothing but compound the frustration, not to mention making me look like an ass at work and just about everywhere else.

  • LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD AND EARN A GREAT REPUTATION & CREDIBILITY BY
    SHARING ANY TRULY EFFECTIVE NATURAL CURES OR PRODUCTS
    I’d like to invite you all to reach wider audiences in spreading the word
    about effective natural cures or products. Please ask and/or respond
    to any question in this free, 100% non-profit forum about truly
    effective natural cures and 100% natural products you may have
    personally tried yourself. You can just ask for help with a question
    or just respond to an existing question with a natural cure you’ve
    tried, or first ask a question about a health problem, cure or
    product and then also reply with your cure if that question does not
    already exist. This would let you earn credibility by accumulating a
    ‘reputation’ here as your questions and/or responses get upvoted by
    the public. The beauty of such a voting system is to eventually let truly effective
    products or cures rise to the top after having received thousands or
    millions of upvotes from real people who try them out, while
    ineffective or fake remedies or products eventually start going down
    with enough number of downvotes from actual users themselves. I’ve
    created this forum in the hopes of helping actual users of holistic
    products or cures educate the world instead of the self-serving
    wealthy drug companies who sponsor almost all the drug research, who
    aggressively and often unethically promote the use of non-holistic
    chemicals with side effects.
    IMPORTANT:
    ONLY VERY REAL PERSONAL EXPERIENCES about ailments and natural cures
    should be requested and described in this forum – mere theories,
    ideas, opinions or scientific research are not to be discussed. IN
    VOTING FOR CURES OR PRODUCTS, PLEASE ONLY VOTE IF YOU’VE TRIED
    YOURSELF.

    HOW TO USE THIS GREAT FORUM IS SUPER EASY AND STRAIGHTFORWARD:
    Not only responses but questions can also be upvoted or downvoted
    depending on whether they are well-meaning and geared to elicit
    beneficial responses or if they are silly or irrelevant. Your
    questions can invite participants to try your product or cure, giving
    it a chance to eventually get upvoted and become extremely popular if
    it really works, or downvoted if it does not work. As mentioned
    before, you can first ask a question about a health problem, cure or
    product and then also reply with your cure if that question does not
    already exist. Although you can promote your own 100% natural
    product, please do so only if you are absolutely sure that it’s
    effective a few initial upvotes from your friends or family would
    not be able to prevent it from eventually starting to get downvotes
    if it does not really work, ruining your credibility and reputation
    instead of building it up.

  • I have this 24/7 for many many months…I got used to it.. takes me much longer to construct sentences, I sound like I am not present. I had a narcissistic abuse. Trying to heal from it.

  • You did not mention sleep apnea, which is far more common than people realize. Also, a diet with fewer carbs and more healthy fats does improve this condition.

  • Many people have it because of IBS/Candida/SIBO. The intestines are often out of kilter because of leaky gut and imbalance in bacteria. Nutrition alone wouldn’t solve IBS, but it would help a lot. Things like bone broth, anti-fungals, cooked vegetables, l-glutamine, and the right probiotics would help. And one should avoid dairy and gluten for a while, at least. Meditation and physical activity would also help.

  • Man, I struggle and fight brain fog every day. I work a 9-5 office job and I love it but my body always need to be stimulated. What I found what helps the most is forcing myself to go outside and take a walk in the sunshine ☀️. Even though I want to nap. I haven’t napped in years (even tho I really really want to haha) Getting my body moving has helped me so much. It boosts my mood, I get some vitamin D, and just get my blood running:D.

    I did notice that every time I use sugar free coffee creamer I get brain fog. Thanks for the advice.

  • Thank you so much. I have a question for you. can drinking an excess of alcohol for a long period of time create brain fog? I was what could be considered as a raging alcoholic. i was drinking everyday skipping only about 2 days a week for around six months. now i understand that in itself is terrible for your body but i am now worried that this brain fog is irreversible. i have been following your advice on eating well and getting at least a full eight hours but i am still experiencing the symptom’s of brain fog. any advice?

  • Exactly how I feel, I’ve had brain fog for almost 2 years now. It sucks and whoever suffers from it you are not alone. Thanks for opening up in this video about it at least I know I’m not the only one. You are a strong woman. Hope you are good & wish you the best recovery❤️

  • Please help me this is exactly how i feel and I need help fixing it honestly I think it’s because of weed I have smoked but it hasn’t gone away in 6 monthes

  • Are you kidding me?? This is what I had and never knew the word for it, I just thought I was weird and dumb. I had so much trouble reading a simple sentence I was made fun of.

  • When i am alone and reading or watching videos i dont get brain fogs but everytime when i am with group of people or some one ask me something or i engage into the conversation i get brain fogs. My professor often ask questions to students but every time he ask me question, he talk slowly so i can grasp what he is saying
    I have been experiencing it for last 4 years and that was the time when i first got my computer & internet.

  • I want to do something I know where to start buth somewhere I stop or give up I forgeth what I do wrong and coming back at the same point and have a progress at all and still strugling for years

  • Is anyone else here due to lockdown? Since lockdown my brain just feels like mush. I can’t hold a conversation well and can’t articulate my words properly… I don’t take anything in. I feel numb and I really struggle with concentration and memory. I hate it. I don’t know how much I can take it anymore

  • Oh no this year is one of my most important exams for me to select an school and I have brain fog how Long do I need to cure it plz help

  • Toby, I’ve been suffering for a few years with me cfs, just starting to feel better. glad I found you! a suggestion, I really enjoy listening to you but it would be really helpful to have a visual aid, like maybe a list of the things you are suggesting. Because for me is very hard to pay attention for the entire video. thanks so much!

  • Great video as usual! Broken or light sleep is a big one for me. Another thing I found to help with sleep is managing my circadian rhythm by getting out in the sun for as much a possible during the day.

  • Toby, I have a question. Without getting into my history, why is it that some antibiotics clear up my problems temporarily, yet the symptoms (debilitating brain fog) return? Is it possible that antibiotics can be efficacious against non-infectious illness? I’m trying to figure out why this is. Forget about soliciting doctors for this info. I am not getting answers

  • I have had Brain fog now for almost 2 years and this video explains how my brain fog has been. I have struggled with my suicide thought of ”I can’t think clearly or do anything in life so whats the point of living” stuff. This has led me down to the deepest depression and anxiety and I’m gonna change it. I hope everyone who reads this that struggles with mentall illness or some other stuff that you have a great day and don’t stop fighting, because if i can do it so can you!

  • Another thing that can lead to brain fog is excessive masturbating. NoFap is a online community that talks a lot about this if anyone is curious to look up the source

  • sir i thank you for this i have not been exercising i been playing xbox one all day. not catchin up on my sleep and now i know why my brain was like that i have been waking up wondering why i am so tired and now that you let me know what was going on i thank you and god bless you sir ��

  • I get plenty of sleep and i don’t feel tired physically. My problem is that my head always hurts at the top like someone is squishing my brain with their hand. I have trouble reading a single sentence i have to focus on it just to grasp what it’s saying. i have trouble communicating and typing. i used to type really fast but now i’m much slower and make more mistakes. my memory is terrible and have trouble forming new memories. i don’t hear what people are saying when they are speaking to me….i just nod my head and pretend i do just so i don’t get embarrassed. i think the cause is i drink too much caffeine and i don’t drink water at all. so i’m going to try that even though i’m hooked on mountain dew. hopefully that helps!

  • I used to read a book a week. I stopped and got a bit hooked on computer games. Had horrible brain fog for 3 years now. Maybe you have a point matey.

  • great advice Toby.
    Can i ask your thoughts on chiropractic care?
    I’ve been following Dr John Bergman’s advice and getting corrective chiro treatments (“Reversing Fibromyalgia”), along with veg juicing, wholesome food (no gluten, low dairy), drinking bone broth, meditation etc. and am finally recovering.
    Wish i had found his teachings sooner, he explains how the body works so well!

  • Gut problems can be behind the brain fog and chronic fatigue, if you have fermentation going on in the gut. Been there, done that.
