Brain fog, short term memory loss, lack of focus
Good morning all. I am reaching out to this group to see if anyone else is struggling with this.
I was diagnosed with Small Fiber Neuropathy, mostly autonomic, about 8 weeks ago. I am sooo frustrated that my brain seems to be getting more and more scattered, unable to focus or remember basic things for a short time!! I've been sick since October 2019 and between pain, stress, depression, meds and any number of other things, sure, I've had trouble with brain fog and lack of focus. In the last couple of months though, it has gotten really bad. I'm still doing my best to work FT, maintain our home, and generally keep up with life, but from moment to moment, I can completely forget what I was thinking of!
I'm becoming concerned about driving and whether my lack of short term memory will mean mistakes in my work.
Thoughts, encouragement, ideas?
