Does COVID brain fog go away on its own?
Just curious if anyone has had their brain fog/dizziness go away on its own. I was hospitalized in November 2021 for a week. Thankfully all my other symptoms have gone away except the brain fog/dizziness. I really hate to think I’m stuck with this. I’ve tried everything I can think of-PT, visits to ENT/neurologist. I read this blog daily and have tried many of the suggestions you all give. (Thank you by the way). Im so tired of hearing “Your test results are normal”.
At the same time, I’m so thankful my other symptoms have cleared up. Hoping you all get relief soon!!

I still have brain fog mainly when I try to somewhere I have been to many time but still can’t get there without a GPS. My doc gave me an Alzheimer’s test which I passed, easily. So, I’m not sure if or when this will go away. But some of the blogs I have read makes feel lucky that it’s not worse. Jimt
Sorry forgot that I also have the feeling of dread all the time, like something is going to happen soon. What I don’t know. Jimt728
Thanks for the info. And you are right-I am so thankful I’m not worse. My heart goes out to those that have worse symptoms. It’s so frustrating! Praying for relief for all soon!!
Sorry to hear that. I have found that I definitely pay more attention to what is going on with my body now. And for quite a few months my anxiety level was through the roof. Not as anxious but I think that is because most of my symptoms have gone away. Hang in there!
The outstanding Danish physician who helped our vaccine neurological injuries group on Facebook recommended palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) for those suffering from head pressure and brain fog. The etiology of the vaccine injuries resembles that of long Covid. There is good research evidence that PEA reduces neuroinflammation. For bioavailability, it needs to be micronized.
I’ve had brain fog since I got Covid and Long Covid – Jan. 27 2022.
It get bad when I’m very tired and trying to have a conversation or trying to read. Stuff like that.
My husband and I both had Covid 19 at the same time, January 27, 2022. I am still dizzy from time to time. But, I watch him struggle with it almost daily. He had it terribly bad the first 3 months. It has gotten much better. I have the same question: Does it ever go away?
I had Covid on December 2020 and I still get Brain Fog, specially if I'm extremely tired and have a lot of things to do. I have to write everything down and do one thing at the time, I can't work as I used to because I forget everything and get distracted, I space out constantly and have other people repeating themselves. Has anyone gone through something like that?
I also noticed it seems worse when I’m very tired. Hang in there!
I have brain fog from MCTD, and have found that D3 and B12 help a lot–I was low on blood tests. After having Covid, I had lethargy and also could not convince myself to do anything! It is better a year later, but it seems like finding what it takes for you to cope is a useful adaptation. I use lists, habits (get up, eat and go for a walk), and alarms to keep myself on track. Still, there are silly things that happen, but so far nothing life threatening.
