Hey guys....quick question. lately I have been really anxious...actually, for about a month now....and the worst part is that i get this feeling that it is so difficult to concentrate or focus well. Is that a common complaint with an anxiety disorder? I know that i have a problem with times it drives me up the wall for half the day, however, even when it is not bad i still have this clouded head feeling. I feel best when I wake, then feel progressively worse as the day that common?

Welcome to HW we are so happy you found us. You will find pleanty of support and friendships here and it won't take you long to feel like your part of our family.

I suffer from fibro and anxiey but I feel my fog comes from the fibro because I was having those problems before I started having anxiety. It can really get scary sometimes I thought I might be having alztimers but it wasn't.

I hope you get to feeling better soon and hope to see you in chat sometime.

Yes, I've gotten that foggy feeling also. Paxil really helped with that aspect. Only get it during my rare periods of severe anxiety now.

Welcome Papitodd. Foggy head is very common with anxiety sufferers. If it bothers you to a point you just can't take it anymore, talk to your doc and see if he can give you something to help with the anxiety. Good luck!

I am not ure that I have had THAT brain fog but for me, I feel overwhelmed by everything when I have anxious days and don't think straight. I think it's from being oversensitized when my body only wants to think and monitor itself despite having to carry on with life.
