For roughly 6 months now, I've been struggling with a very chronic brain fog/ inability to think clearly. The condition came on so strong that I became incredibly disoriented, confused, and even depersonalized. I was feeling so much dread and despair due to feeling like I wasn't myself, and having to wrestle with mental unclarity all day. It is hard to describe the condition, but it is as though I have little to no energy behind my thinking, so thoughts go by very quickly, and make concentration nearly impossible. In the past month or so, I have been able to achieve a bit better handle on what's going on and am less confused, although the brain fog is still quite severe.
The brain fog is coupled with a persistent eye condition in which my eyes go in and out of focus all day long. I have 20/20 vision, but the focusing system/ focusing muscle in my eyes will cause whatever I'm focusing on to momentarily blur and refocus throughout the day. This has been going on longer than the brain fog, but has gotten much worse lately, and it just feels like there is a link between them, although I don't know for sure.
Has anyone heard of anything like this??? I went to neurology and they basically just ruled out anything life-threatening and sent me on my way without a brain scan. I've gone to a few opthalmology appointments and they haven't been very enlightening either, as they have been about as confused as me about why my eyes are doing this. My next appointment will be with neuro-opthalmology
The last thing may be the weirdest part, but my brain fog/ eyes have often felt severely worse after m-bation/ wet dreams. This brings about insomnia, and causes my whole body to tense up and become tight. Is this psychosomatic? I know this is strange, but it's part of this weird, confusing puzzle. This whole thing has just been devastating and I'm desperate to find some answers. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
