I feel like this post was written just for me! I didn't realize brain fog was a symptom of celiac disease until after I was diagnosed 2 months ago.
For the last year, prior to my diagnosis, I've been having all kinds of issues of 'fog'. I was tired all the time. I felt like it was taking me forever to process thoughts when someone was talking to me. When Ineeded to say something, what I was thinking in my head was all jumbled when itcame out of my mouth. I'd be in the car and for a split second couldn't remember which pedal was the gas and which was the brake. I forgot my sister's middle name. I could spend an entire day sitting and staring off into space and only feel like I'd been there for a minute or two. Crazy things! I tried to explain that to my doctor (not the GI that ended up diagnosing celiac disease) and her response was for me to increase my Adderall or adjust my anti-depressants.
I always labeled myselfas clumsy but I guess a lot of that can be contributed to the celiac disease as well.
My question to those ofyou that have been gluten-free for a long period of time - how long did it take for this to clear up? Like I said - I've been strict gluten-free for 2 months. There are days that my head feels really clear, and others that I feel like I did 6 months ago.
I'm tired of feeling crazy! Any input is much appreciated!
