Hi, I'm Christina. I'm newly registered to CB, but have been sneaking around behind the scenes for a bit. I've been (rather unsuccessfully) dealing with GAD, SH and what turns out to be BP for quite awhile but only started seeing doctors about it in the past year. Noncrazy facts about me: I love my cat and my church family. Other that that I've had to relearn who I am over the past year and really haven't gotten very far. Anyone else feel like their whole life and personality has been invalidated by their Dx?
Does anybody have brain fog from anxiey, that's gotten so bad it's just constant? This started about 2 years ago when I had a bout of Paranoia and increased anxiety. My friend told me it is de-realization.. but whatever it is called I can't take it anymore!!!, Even in times I am exercizing and feeling generally well otherwise... I still have this FOG! I was on Zoloft last year and tapered off of it because I was convinced it was because of the Zoloft, however the fogginess never went away. For a long time I was taking care of myself, yoga, meditation, exercize, practicing positive thinking etc. All of this helped a little, but still the fogginess remained. Recently I've had extreme anxiety again and am going back down the medicine road, though I really hate to, I just don't know what else to do. I've been to the doctor, had a bunch of blood tests done (for Lymes, Lupus, everything under the sun!), ... Even went to the Gastro doctor to get tested to see if I have Celiac's disease, turns out (100s of dollars later) I just have a little IBS and every other test is normal! This is obviously a good thing, but still doesn't explain the fog. Oh, I also convinced myself I had a Candida overgrowth, but my gastro doctor told me if i did they would've found it.. (went a little cray cray over that). Has anyone else experienced this, are they currently.. and does it ever go away??? What has helped you if it has? I'm desparate, I just want to feel clear-headed!
