Brain Fog: Can Your Cloudy Thinking Be Explained?

What is brain fog?

It’s not a medical condition in itself, but it’s a symptom that’s frequently attached to others.

Are you finding it hard to focus? Struggling to remember things? Always fishing for the words you need? Generally lacking mental clarity?

These are all classic symptoms of brain fog. Basically, it’s like something is stopping your brain from lighting up and working as it should.

The good news is the team at Tri-Cities Functional Medicine has answers. Here’s how you can start blowing those mental cobwebs away.

Lots of things can cause symptoms of brain fog.

Here are some of the main ones you need to know.

First, modern medicine is amazing, but many drugs have side effects. If you take a new drug and you notice you’re not feeling right, ask your doctor.

Second, sleep is vital to having a good quality of life. Conditions such as sleep apnea can stop you from getting the rest you need, but it’s highly treatable.

Third, thyroid disorders can be difficult to diagnose, because they explain a range of issues that you might think of as generally just not feeling well. And yes – this includes cloudy thinking.

Finally, we’re going to talk about autoimmune conditions. This can cause issues such as chronic pain, fatigue, inflammation, and brain fog.
