Sweetfeather, You are the only person I know who “isn’t sure what brain fog is”! ha. It sounds like you are just on the edge of it. Let’s hope you stay on the edge!
Oh, my shoulder is inflammatory but I wanted to share with you that my set-back looks like it’s from the STEROID shot I got for the shoulder. A strong steroid shot for those of us who have weak immune systems can cause our viruses to go wild again (CMV, EBV for example). Ugh. I can handle pain. But the resurgence of symptoms, feeling like I have a fever, my intracranial pressure going up, etc. is tough!
The good thing is that I know what to do this time, and hope to nip it in the bud.
I loved your analogy of being in a race and tripping on the hurdles…
