Hi-
I am just curious how many folks have trouble with their memory. I personally have trouble with mine. I am 25 years old, and really shouldn't be having this much trouble.

I have trouble remebering mostly details of events. I can tell you the basic facts, but sometimes the details of a story escape me. Memories are sometimes foggy, like things from a month ago or even a year ago, I just can't remember details of things. I might remember that "they happened" but no clue why, how, what color they were wearing, etc!!

Also, I will go to do something at my house, walk into a room and then wonder why I am there. I have forgotten what I was going to go do. This one has been really bad lately. Maybe I am just stressed, but It is bothering me.

It drives me CRAZY!! Let me know if anybody else has wierd stuff like this!!

hey jess-
I know for sure that when I have an accident, the "Fog Brain" comes swooping down on me. the month before I got diagnosed, when I was really sick, I kept complaining that I was dumb. And everyone wa telling me, oh honey, your really smart. Yes, normally I am a reasonably bright individual, butI couldn't string two thoughts together for that month. Now, unless I have an accident, I am pretty clear.

i do do the walk into the room and forget why thing pretty often though. what works for me is to walk back to where I came from, for some reason that nearly always jogs my memory.

Well this isn't brain fog. I know how that feels and it isn't the same as this. This is just plain forgetting. I feel like an alztimers patient trapped in a 25 year old body!! (not all the time, just sometimes)

HMMMM ... I thought this was CRS (Can't Remember Stuff) which happens to other people my age, but then I'm not that old! :o If all of you, who are much younger than I am and have been gluten-free for a while, STILL have that brain fog, maybe this is just a sign of our times: too much information to process, too little time to do everything, and not enough brain 'downtime' through sleep, meditation, relaxation, etc. I would LOVE to hear that CRS is celiac related, so that after a long gluten-free period, I no longer get brain fog! :D Does anybody know of any studies linking those symptoms to celiac or disappearance of those symptoms after going gluten-free for awhile?
