Brain fog is a term used to describe feelings of confusion, forgetfulness and lack of focus. It can be caused by many things including stress, sleep deprivation, depression, anxiety and medications. Some people also report brain fog during menopause and after giving birth.
Symptoms of brain fog can include feeling overwhelmed, scattered thoughts, difficulty concentrating and recalling information, decreased productivity, inappropriate responses or forgetting what you were going to say. For some people, brain fog can be quite debilitating and interfere with their daily activities.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important to rule out any medical conditions that could be causing them. Once that is done, talk to your doctor about possible strategies to help reduce your symptoms. This may include adjusting your medication dosage or schedule, exercise, healthy eating habits and stress-relieving techniques.
