Dr. Diana… I’ve had two kinds of brain fog so I wanted to be clear about which type. 😉
1) Brain fog from gluten: became nearly constant and associated with bloating, groggy, slow cognitive processing, and sleepy all the time… (felt slightly drunk from toxins from leaky gut)
2)Brain fog from HyperPots: episodic, awake, usually normal cognitive speed (unless dehydrated or heart rate is really high), slightly anxious or like I’ve had too much coffee… word-finding difficulty and trouble remembering line of thought if interrupted. I believe this is from mast cell activation… metanephrines, histamine, yadayada… in the brain.
So that’s why I always feel terrible on steroids! I try to avoid them like the plague!
My best, SweeFeather
