Anything Help With The Brain Fog?

Feeling particularly fatigued and foggy today, is there anything that actually helps? I feel like caffeine might, but I'm not having caffeine right now.

Those are the days I love to take naps. But I recommend a brisk walk around the neighborhood. It helps when it's a little cold outside - if it's hot out, that makes my fatigue worse.

I tried a 1/2 hour power nap the other day for my brain fog - it helped. I have also followed the advice of some of the wise folks here who said to take a walk outside and increase my water intake.

Best,

Pondy

I can sympathize. It took me 3 months to be mostly free of the brain fog, but I have gathered here that it takes others longer. Everyone is different. The only thing that worked in the end was time. In the meantime, if it helps at all, there are many others that know that feeling, so you're not alone, and after living with it myself for many years before going gluten free, I do think it's worth any wait. I will say that eating fresh, unprocessed foods EXCLUSIVELY for the first few months helped greatly, I think. Anyway, I am hoping you feel sharper soon.

Thanks for the replies! I was hoping there was a magic potion or something :unsure: haha

I did a little bit of exercise which did help a bit with the fatigue, not so much with the fog.

I have the unfortunate problem of insomnia, even if I'm really tired...I always say "I suck at napping" lol, because it's next to impossible for me.

I've been on solely whole foods for 6 days now....WOW it feels like SO much longer haha

I also forgot that it's "that time" in a day or so, and that could probably have an effect as well...I hear the first one gluten-free is awful, not looking forward to it!

Anyways, I guess I'm doing the right things, I just have to be patient and wait it out!!!

oh, I also wanted to say...it does help a bit that there are many others feeling the same way, but what doesn't help is that pretty much nobody around me understands!

The fog kind of lifted (for today at least...fingers crossed!) today, YAY!

It's so crazy to me how debilitating "the fog" really is! I couldn't even do the simplest of things that were anything beyond what I really HAD to do to get through the day!

It would be nice if it's gone for good, but I won't get my hopes up too high. I just try to do all that I can on the days when it does subside, then it makes me feel less guilty on the days when I can't ;)

For me, the magic potion was a B50 complex vitamin. It literally worked within about 20 minutes to lift my brain fog. It worked for me every time. After being gluten free for about 6-8 months I no longer had any brain fog symptoms. I used to get it real bad ALL the time but now i can get a bit of cross contamination and feel no fog like symptoms. I am so glad because my brain fog was debilitating.

One nice thing i read way back about a b50 complex vitamin is that its water soluble. So your body uses what it needs and you will pee out the rest. You will know when its leaving you because its a a bright greeny yellow nuclear looking pee. Kinda freeky but hey, that they way it is.

I know if i have been gluten-free for a while it will be bright but if my body needs the vitamins it will not be so bright.

Go get some B50 and hopefully you can thank me.

It literally changed my life while trying to come to terms dealing with this ailment.

Oh I really hope so, too! I have sublingual B12, but I will look for B50 complex....ooo my bf just said he has some, SCORE! I will let you know, soon! Right now I'm not too foggy, just can't sleep...had between 3-4hrs and now I'm pretty much up, don't see much point trying to go back to sleep since I have to be up in an hour and a bit :P
