Thank-you so much for your post bookie. I was just getting ready to ask my grandmother to more closely describe a migraine. Migraines run in my family on one side and I did wonder if I got something like them without the pain. I had a CAT-scan done when I was 21, 8 years ago, because I thought it had to be SOMETHING, maybe like a brain tumor. I'm sure inhalants didn't help anything but I don't think they're the cause. The CAT-scan only showed an infected sinus. That's no surprise because to this day I blow my nose alwost habitually but have no sign of allergies. Sinus headaches run on both sides of my family. I however almost never get headaches, at least not with pain. If I rub my forehead it does seem to affect the feeling I percieve to be in my brain. I wonder if obsessive thoughts are just fooling me into thinking that sinus pressure is a feeling actually inside my brain. In an earlier post I talked about Anafranil helping, I didn't really mean that the Anafranil directly affected the brain fog, it was more that I just didn't notice it anymore and felt more normal. Anafranil helped with shyness and settled down panic. It may have eased the brain fog that way. My brain fog rears up under generalized performance anxiety especially in social situations, and bad types of stress. I do associate brain fog with depersonalization or derealization, losing it, and feeling dumb but these are all symptoms of anxiety and panic. Believing that the cause of those symptoms is the the brain fog may just cause more anxiety which makes more brain fog and so forth down a visious circle. This is not to say I don't feel brain fog without anxiety, I do at times, but I also know that for long periods in the last two years that I have been been relatively "in control of my situation" and medication free that brain fog hasn't been an issue.
