Blogging prompt: What is fibro fog

Fibro fog is the feeling of being in a haze. When I have it I say my head feels like it is full of cotton wool and on those days I just can't think straight. I have difficulty concentrating, finding the right words and remembering things. If I am at work then I have to concentrate really hard to have a conversation and appear normal.

According to a 2015 review in Rheumatology International, some patients report that the loss of mental clarity can be even more devastating than the pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Fibro fog can manifest itself in different ways in different people but some of the most common symptoms include:

  • short term memory loss
  • misplacing objects
  • becoming easily distracted
  • forgetting plans
  • difficulty carrying on conversations
  • inability to remember new information" ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION
