ahhh, the dreaded brain fog - know it well and fear it like nothing else.

i've concluded it's a form of depression and the subjective experience is a combination of low neuronal activity in some areas and more in others. i suspect an inter-ictal (hemispheric/seizure-like) origin for this feeling. but nobody in the medical community seems interested in strapping a million-dollar instrument to my head and finding out.

my fogs often come with smell hallucinations, which also doesn't seem to impress my shrink, but it impresses the heck out of me.

i've had brain fogs with strong depressive feelings & without. they can last for months or be as short as 10 days.

exercise does seem to help reduce the frequency. i'm currently taking 2.5 grams/day of omegabrite fish oil and am off antidepressants for the first time in years. my brain seems to like this stuff.

i have heard people with lupus & cfs describe brain fogs (without depression) so it could be that this is an auto-immune disorder mixed in with garden variety depression.

it's all so complicated isn't it?

i feel for you man. do you ever have mania? it's the exact opposite of brain fog.
