I fear I have post covid brain fog

I had a case during the summer. After a week of being sick, it petered out.

Ever since then, I've been unable to concentrate in the same way as before. Just sitting down and reading a chapter in entirety is a chore. Can anyone relate?

I have pre covid brain fog so yes I believe we balance each other out.

Not personally. A friend has a business associate who had it back in March. As of September or October, she still had a brain fog. She sometimes struggles to come up with simple words in conversation. Her husband asked what she wanted for dinner. "Something light. A, a, ahh..." Salad was the word she was looking for.

I'm sorry you're going through this. I can't imagine how frustrating not being able to read unimpeded.

^unimpeded is.

Well, I think it could also be the fact we are sitting at home and lacking interaction with people. Dealing with people is work. If we have unplugged our brain for a year, no wonder it burps from time to time.

Thanks R2. I also find myself forgetting things. I'll go into the kitchen for coffee, get distracted by something, and return to my desk without the coffee. I'm 30 btw and never had forgetfulness problems before

COVID creates permanent organ damage, si it may have affected your brain. I’m sorry.

Maybe it will get better.

OP you're just reading a boring book.

Yes, I had it in March. I can’t remember the name of anything. I can remember minute details about something except what it’s called. I’m also fatigued quite a bit.

I've felt that way since I turned 40. I'm becoming Aunt Clara.

But I didn't have Covid.

OP = Same problem. I think I might have had Covid but never got tested because symptoms were mild and months ago tests were only for those severe cases---remember they used to tell people to not go to a hospital with mild symptoms...I definitely have problems smelling (another symptom)... 50 and I have never had memory problems like this past 9 months. Its kind of scary. I am an avid reader but having problems with that too..But I have a doctors appointment in March and I am going to ask for a test.

I am to receive the second Moderna shot the day after tomorrow. I dont know if I had Covid; but have a persistent sinus infection since the fall.

Not due to Covid, I see a neurologist twice a year due to an unrelated condition. If you have insurance, I recommend it highly for any brain-related disorder.

Can totes relate, gorl. I tried reading the latest David Sedaris' collection, and all I could think about was food!

OP, while you're self-diagnosing covid (sic) brain fog, everyone who knows is recognizing Alzheimer's and alcoholic dementia.

Go ahead and return to plain denial. You're obviously overworking the little that's left.

Lie back and enjoy it, doll. Treat yourself to a new dildo.

Had it in July. Lasted about six weeks. Still have bouts of incredible fatigue and joints swelling, particularly in my feet, and slight brain fog. I tell my partner when I feel foggy, but he attributes it to working from home the past 11 months and lack of stimulation. I dunno, though. There are some days where I feel distant - completely disconnected. Other days, like today, I have energy and feel sharp like I did pre-covid.

by Anonymousreply 1502/23/2021

Can anyone actually read the OP?

It’s all just a big gobbledygook of numbers and random letters.

OP, what the hell is the matter with you? What are you trying to say? Do you need an ambulance?

by Anonymousreply 1602/23/2021

I have not had Covid-19 nor have had work disruption. But I honestly have no clue what day it is and am constantly exhausted. I blame the stress of the times.
