Hi, Jennca, I'm glad I could help. Ah, Fibro Fog - a joy to experience. I will be talking to someone and forget the next word of the sentence or even better, forget the whole point of the conversation. You start to do something and forget what it was that you were going to do. Basically, you stand there looking befuddled, having no idea which end is up.
There were times I would be in the car driving to a specific place and forget where I was going and the route I planned to take. It isn't pretty.
I have had a lot of bad reactions to meds, so for the most part I tend to avoid them. I try to do stretches, walk, rest, & use my heating pad - a lot!. I don't take Tylenol Arthritis too often, but I take the PM at night. I don't sleep a lot, 2 - 3 hrs a night, but more than one PM and I'm so groggy the next day. There is no happy medium here.
I had gone to my pcp yrs ago w/ many symptoms over a period of time, she never 'connected the dots'. I was reading a book on Fibro and they listed the symptoms and I was amazed, I had the whole list. I brought that list to her and finally she thought it might be FMS. That is why I suggested you print out the list, this way the dr can see the whole picture.
Hope that helps. Have a good day.
God bless. Alice.
