Brain fog & NEUROINFLAMMATION
I have still disease (autoimmune) I am treated at Mayo Clinic by reumathologist. The biologic Ilaris canakinumab atop the physical and mental symptoms so I live a life without symptoms. Close to the next injection, when the canikinumab effect is slow Brain fog and mental fatigue gets me. I am sleepy and without energy. The psychiatrist says it’s NEUROINFLAMMATION so the immune system of the brain is ON FIRE during those days. Do you know any med for that (dopaminergics,etc)? My food is completely clean antiinflamatory organic plant based and I exercise.

Many vaccine-injured patients experience brain fog, which is similar to long Covid. The famous Danish physician who has helped our Facebook group recommended palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) supplement to alleviate the neuroinflammation. It has a good safety record and is available on the internet. For bioavailabiliry, the formulation should be micronized. You could ask your physician about it.
Hi…..I was , am often…riddled by mast cell activation syndrome brought on by all the covid shots…….I have had a year of trying to find the perfect diet to handle it and brain fog is a huge issue every time I have a flare. For me the magic came in Cromolyn Sodium Nasal spray by Healthguard, on Amazon. It was amazingly effective the very first time. I have always had sinus inflammation and basically skull inflammation, so this was a Godsend. I hope you try it. Everyone I’ve suggested it to for different reasons but principal for brain fog, has been so pleased! I think it has also been effective for me preventatively!!!
Thanks for your comment may you share the name of the famous danish physician? Is it a fb support group just for post covid or for autoinmune patients? Thanks
A variety of PEA supplements are available on Amazon, including the type micronized that was suggested. Thank you pacer 3702!!! I ordered it!
That’s awesome you had positiveness using Cromolyn. Gives me hope reading your positive outcome.
I read the comment about Cromolyn. I have Sjögrens and other autoimmune. I believe my triggers are humidity and environmental mangroves, grasses. I get terrible brain fog and my body goes into an immune attack with humidity. I read elsewhere good things about Cromolyn in relation to Mast Cell. I’m hopeful this will help me overall. I have to try something and to be honest medical professionals are not looking at triggers just take plaxil even when I said I experience side effects. Staying optimistic!
Me too! I also have done pressure point trigger therapy myself and it helps. Since you do it yourself, it’s available albeit experimental.
