So I am basically in a fog all day long but it seems to get worse when I drive at night & I can't really find anything online about it

It doesn't seem to be from bright headlights, I don't really know what it's from. It just messed with my eyesight so bad. It's like my normal fogx3

What is foggy? your eyesight or your mind? If eyesight, the infection causes light and contrast sensitivity so it is possible that your eyes are having trouble adjusting to the dark and light objects, rendering it as a fog. There is also the problem with a form of vertigo where the mind has trouble adjusting to the "speed" of the eyesight and you get dizzy/vertigo.

If it is your mind, it is common for Lyme to cause the mind to feel foggy.

When this happens, do you also feel nauseous?

No I don't feel nauseous I just feel stoned!!

I'm not sure whether it's my eyes or mind but I would say it's probably both.

This isn't a new problem for me it happenes nearly every time i drive. I would say it's more so my vision I guess. Like I said I'm constantly in a fog all day but something about driving at night, especially half hour before it gets dark. It just messes with me so bad.

I also can barley open my eyes when the sun is out. Like it's almost impossible! I know this problem is very well known for Lyme but I never hear anything about driving at night unless it involves bright lights from other vehicles but that's not my problem.

Sometimes even when looking at my phone it messes with me.

Lyme and Co has messed up my eyes badly. As a matter of fact, today I had to get laser surgery on my right eye because one vein has been leaking. I've been getting an eye injection every month for months and on/off for years due to a vein occlusion and vein leakage.

From what I know, Bart is the cause of many of these eye issues. Like you, I find it hard to drive at night but also to watch TV in the dark for the same reasons. I have had the brain fog that you mention, but not at present. What I do get is dizziness if my eyes move too quickly.

Have you tried wearing yellow tinted glasses at night? I've heard that some people do well with them. I've seen them online for a few dollars so it may be worth a try without spending too much money.

Now that you say you have a hard time watching tv at night it reminds me of myself. My family actually jokes because I usually keep every light in the house on because it messes with my eyes. I cannot stand watching tv with the lights off.

& I have not heard of yellow tinted glasses neither.

I have been treating bartonella now for about 5 months & my muscle twitching has gone down a bunch!! I didn't know that symptoms was from bartonella though.

I can't stand watching TV with the lights off either. I wear yellow sunglasses all the time when I'm outside, and it really helps. I also wear light ones while I'm on the computer or watching TV.

I can't drive at night at all. I don't get brain fog, so much as my eyes just do funny things. Today I saw a speed limit sign I read "40", then a little later, I went past the exact same sign and I read "30". Weird things like that happen when I drive, so I can't drive much.
