> Julia,
> I think what I had was what Kaarina correctly termed as 'floaters,. They are worm-like spots on the visual field that look like microbes in a petri dish. They were brought on my fatigue and rising up to fast. I think it may have been related to temporary hypotension. Anyway, when I had the brain fog I would have these spots come on at times. Wellbutrin, amineptine, and amilsupride all are able to take away the brain fog and the incidents of 'floaters'.

Boy, this is getting frustrating......but, thank you both for your help and support.

I think the journal suggestion is excellent, if for nothing else, then to help me keep focused at my next dr. visit.....

Andrew, you mentioned hypotension as being a catalyst, excuse my medical ignorance, is that high or low bp? The reason, I used to be chronically low, doctors often either worried (when I was young) or congratulated me as I got older. Then after a couple years of drug abuse (I'm, historically, a speed freak, but have been clean for a while now....)my bp went through the roof (no surprise...). But,although speed free, its still way up there.....Maybe there is a correlation....?
ANyway, I'm not really looking for you guys to play dr., I will bring this all up with him,I'm really just looking for shoulders to lament on, and I thank you guys for being there...
