Brain Fog Is Going To Kill My Career

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have been recently diagnosed with coeliac and have been on a gluten-free diet since September. Lately, I have been experiencing 'brain fog' and it is a nightmare.

I have always considered myself to have an awesome memory and always bragged about my short-term memory as I would be able to look at my notes just before being tested in an exam and remember what I had looked at quite accurately to get those extra marks. But lately my short-term memory is stuffed and I am only just realising. I have not liked my job for some time as I get so bored and there is no urgency in what I do. I started to not be able pay attention or concentrate well and put in down to "creating bad habits in a job I hated".

It is not so much the inability to concentrate but my forgetfulness is now shocking. I am building a house and it took me three days to remember to send through the title, I forget to put numerous things onto my shopping list. And worse, I have been offered an awesome new job and received a phone call to pick up my job contract over a week ago and just plain forgot. Even my boyfriend asked a couple days ago if I heard and I said I hadn't, even stating that it was "weird" I hadn't heard from my new boss about my contract. It took me a whole day to remember that he had called to come pick it up. I feel so awful and promised myself to pick it up today.. however he called this morning and asked me if I picked it up and sounded disappointed I hadn't. How can I explain it is not my fault and unlike me without sounding like it will affect my new job as I have so much learn.

I read that it can be an affect of cheating on the diet.. I am so careful, however my partner is not and still ingests gluten at home and I still get sick on occassion. I have decided that tonight I am going home and disinfecting the whole kitchen and removing all gluten from the area (at least until I figure out how to create a gluten friendly kitchen with gluten in it).

But does anyone have any tips on how to improve my short-term memory and inattention or stop gluten contamination from happening to me? I am so scared I will not be able to concentrate or remember things in my new dream job :(

Once you have time completely gluten-free the fog WILL lift. I know it seems as though it will not, but it will. If time gluten-free does not improve your health it will be time to look to other possible intolerances.

I lost my career to undiagnosed Celiac Disease -- you are diagnosed -- you can salvage yours before it is too late.

Hang in there -- get ALL gluten out!

Make sure your nutrient levels are good. If you are short on vitamin B, you will get brain fog. There may be other reasons. Keep walking in the right direction.

I hope you will get better soon,

Diana

Does your boyfriend brush his teeth before kissing you? There is a source of cross contamination right there.

Also, post it notes are lovely for when you cannot remember a thing. As soon as you think of it, write it down and place it on your bathroom mirror. That way you will not forget.

Thanks guys.. it is hard not to feel sorry for yourself sometimes, isn't it? I was quietly crying at my desk this morning because I became so overwhelmed with frustration and hopelessness.

I never thought that coeliac (celiac) could affect so many aspects of my life.. it is exhausting at times.

I am able to have a free blood test this week to have everything checked (vitamin and nutrient levels, etc.), as part of a health survey I did so I will definitely follow through with that.

I will also do the gluten clean out and if I am not feeling better by doing that then I will try cutting out all grains, and/or dairy.

I just want to be all better now so I can stop feeling so bad.

Thanks for your comments :)

Yeah sometimes he'll eat something then touch my hand or something.. and I'm like "Thanks for wiping your gluten germs all over me". And the other day he was washing up dishes and I was trying to cook. I asked him to wash a cutting board and he was trying to tell me was clean, I was like "it is COVERED in bread crumbs". Frustrating! So I think I need to talk to him about it as he just doesn't think sometimes.. but I would love to not have gluten in the house all together - I think he knows how upset I am at the moment so I think I can get him to agree (at least until he can more careful).

Post-its are a good idea.. I'll give that a try. Thanks :)

and separate cooking items == like a bright green cutting board for your stuff -- preparing on a safe surface is of paramount importance

You can share a kitchen...but some duplicate items are essential -- we were combined for a while -- I went from a 4 slice toaster to two - 2 slice toasters -- one being covered in a bright green cover so no chance of cc. Separate colander, wooden cooking utensils, non-stick frying pans, etc...again separate color of items really helps.

i keep a notepad and pen nearby me anytime i'm sitting down and jot to-do's down. i jokingly refer to it as my "portable brain." i used to be smart (hahahaha) but know i am definitely not as quick as i used to be. i don't know how much to blame it on undiagnosed celiac for 40ish years, how much is hormones, being middle-aged . . . or what. no matter what the cause, it helps me keep track of things. i started a new job this past september and had a few panic moments thinking i wouldn't be able to remember what i was being told. i decided getting it done right was more important than looking foolish, so i started jotting it all down on my notepad. it's really helped.

Hi Brownie, I have more sympathy than anything because I am going through the same. gluten-free diet helped, now I have cut out grains, too.

Not a medical advice, but meditation helps me a lot. Have you ever tried breathing exercises? These things increase mindfulness, which I find help with my awful forgetfulness.

Be sure to check your shampoos and lipsticks--lots of gluten action could be going on there.

Not as bad, tho, as that cutting board just covered in glutenoid crumbs. Yuck! Completely unacceptable ! Really, you must get yourself some new, CLEAN, VIRGIN cooking accessories, mark them boldly with a permanent marker, and tell Mr. Contamination Vector to keep his glutentrash off of it !

Oh, and definitely use post it notes, and a notepad to jot things down immediately, if you don't have one of those cutesy electronic devices with a place to put calender reminders. It is interesting how aging effects memory also, in the sexes. As my parents aged, I noticed my mother, who didn't drive, could still remember routes to get to places she had been, and could navigate other drivers, like my stepfather, who could not remember as well. Now, I've noticed this interesting thing going on with my spouse, he can't quite remember where some store is, for example this weekend, but I could remember what street it was on, and what town, and how to get to it from a certain route to the north. But we were south of it. So he whips out his little new phone with the new map app and looks it up to confirm that I had the correct street (of course I did ! ;) ) but he's going to take a different route. I would have driven back up the highway to find the starting point I already knew, to re orient myself, without using the map. That's the difference. We live in an area which had a huge, huge growth rate in the past dozen years, population quadrupled, and they are still putting in some connector roads, and there is a whole slew of these new roads only a few years old yet that I just don't have memorized, but he does. So he takes the new route, and because it is dark, I am not quite following how he is doing this, but I don't really care. 5 years ago, I would have mentally insisted that I could be able to immediately pick up on this different route. Now, when we got close (by the street address) coming from the opposite direction, he started doubting himself, and I had to point out which side of the road we would be turning on to enter the parking lot, and soon enough, the store appeared.

But I wasn't worried because I was basically familiar with the entire area. However, I've learned that if we are going to a new place, I need to be less complacent because men do tend get too fond of their little electronic gizmos, and tend not to actually pay attention to the real, physical landmarks of where they are. :rolleyes: This is why I had to remind him to not turn left immediately as we were leaving. :lol:

I totally understand where youre coming from, my boss recently told me I was 'forgetting things and to use a notebook' which is not good when my job is safeguarding!!. A few months ago I went gluten free for 4 weeks and on the last 2 weeks my mind/memory was amazing like never before ...unfortunately I now have to eat gluten until biopsy is done so Im very frustrated!

I'm sure you need to give yourself time to heal and you'll be fine :) but a few ideas to try while you wait:-

* Drink water to bring oxygen to the brain which helps memory recall.

* Ginko/Ginseng - my boss used to swear by it.

* Yoga - helps with destressing/clears the mind

* Beetroot surposedly good for the brain and parsley for the adrenals

* B complex

* Why not try a 3 day juicing detox for mind and body: Jason Vale on youtube

Good luck, you'll be fine :) oh and Congratulations on your New Job!!! :) ...knock em dead! ;)

I have been really good this week :) and I really appreciate the advice.

I have been putting in reminders to my email and leaving post its about so I can remember stuff.. it seems to be working as I haven't forgotten anything so far... at least that I know of!I

I disinfected my pantry and removed the bread and wheat flour (finally) - have relocated the bread to a cupboard/benchtop in the laundry (ditched the flour) which will store Mr. Contamination Vector's gluten treats and toaster, his OWN cutting board and knife. I also brought new chopping boards. Next I will be cleaning out my cutlery drawers as I am sure some bread crumbs have made there way from the bench into the open drawer at some stage. Also, I really need a good check of my makeup.. I have checked most of my lip stuff, does the other makeup matter if it goes on your face and that? (is that a silly question?)

When I wrote my comment on here I was so upset. But I am actually looking at things with a clearer head now that I have had time (and with some help) and have come up with solutions and I feel a bit better. Sometimes I do panic and get overwhelmed (damn anxiety) - but I must be positive!!!

Thanks Veggie Gal, I am very excited about my new job and feeling better about it .. I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday!! But yoga and a juice detox may help too. Maybe buy some gingko tablets. I'd try anything at the moment!

I just went through the gluten challenge myself recently so I know exactly how hard it is!!

So I wish you luck and hope you get the answers you seek.

i'm not an expert on this, but have been told that your skin is highly absorbent and you shouldn't use anything on it that has gluten. in other places i've read that you must take it in orally. so . . . who knows? i'm thinking to be on the safe side, i'd make sure all the cosmetics are ok. i've called manufacturers and checked websites - it's doable to check them all out.

glad you're feeling better!

I too am having memory problems and have been for a long time before I was diagnosed in August 2012. I suspect however that I was gluten intolerant for a long time without realizing what it was. What led to my diagnosis was a outbreak of dermatitis hepetiformis. I do hope time will be the factor to help my memory. I am 72 years old so wonder if it is all due to celiac?

You may have some level of adrenal fatigue and/or hypothyriodism. When I got burnt out and severe adrenal fatigue my memory went from really good to borderline dementia. I was also intolerant to casein, if you eat lots of milk/cheese maybe you should trial casein first. You probably don't have to remove cream/butter/ghee though since the milk fat isn't very allergenic

    Celiac.com 06/25/2018 - The latest studies show that celiac disease now affects 1.2% of the population. That’s millions, even tens of millions of people with celiac disease worldwide. The vast majority of these people remain undiagnosed. Many of these people have no clear symptoms. Moreover, even when they do have symptoms, very often those symptoms are atypical, vague, and hard to pin on celiac disease.
    Here are three ways that you can help your healthcare professionals spot celiac disease, and help to keep celiacs gluten-free: 
    1) Your regular doctor can help spot celiac disease, even if the symptoms are vague and atypical.
    Does your doctor know that anemia is one of the most common features of celiac disease? How about neuropathy, another common feature in celiac disease? Do they know that most people diagnosed with celiac disease these days have either no symptoms, or present atypical symptoms that can make diagnosis that much harder? Do they know that a simple blood test or two can provide strong evidence for celiac disease?
    People who are newly diagnosed with celiac disease are often deficient in calcium, fiber, folate, iron, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and zinc. Deficiencies in copper and vitamin B6 are less common, but still possible. Also, celiac disease is a strong suspect in many patients with unexplained nutritional anemia. Being aware of these vague, confusing symptoms of celiac disease can help people get bette advice, and hopefully speed up a diagnosis.
    2) Your dentist can help spot celiac disease
    Does your dentist realize that dental enamel defects could point to celiac disease? Studies show that dental enamel defects can be a strong indicator of adult celiac disease, even in the absence of physical symptoms. By pointing out dental enamel defects that indicate celiac disease, dentists can play an important role in diagnosing celiac disease.
    3) Your pharmacist can help keep you gluten-free
    Does your pharmacist know which medicines and drugs are gluten-free, and which might contain traces of gluten? Pharmacists can be powerful advocates for patients with celiac disease. They can check ingredients on prescription medications, educate patients to help them make safer choices, and even speak with drug manufacturers on patients’ behalf.
    Pharmacists can also help with information on the ingredients used to manufacture various vitamins and supplements that might contain wheat.
    Understanding the many vague, confusing symptoms of celiac disease, and the ways in which various types of health professionals can help, is a powerful tool for helping to diagnose celiac disease, and for managing it in the future. If you are suffering from one or more of these symptoms, and suspect celiac disease, be sure to gather as much information as you can, and to check in with your health professionals as quickly as possible.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    • Hi, How long have you been on the gluten-free / dairy-free diet?  It can take months or years to recover from celiac disease damage.  Have you been diagnosed yet?  It is better and easier to get tested for celiac disease before going gluten-free.
    • I am really glad you found something to help your child. It is hard to see them not feeling well.  For me, what helped keep me regular was taking a magnesium supplement, just 250 mgs a day at dinner time helps me.  When I run out, if I didn't buy more yet, I feel the difference within a few days.   I was wondering to try magnesium citrate, wasn't sure what the difference was between that and plain magnesium supplements. I am bummed because the magnesium I liked the best was in a liquid gel cap, but it has soy lecithin in it, so not sure if it bothers me.  Soy lecithin seems to be that iffy ingredient so I probably won't know if it bothers me until my stomach heals. Then I will try it sometime again to see.  
    • I’m wondering what my next steps should be. I’m struggling, I can’t figure it out, I’ve been dealing with the following symptoms since I can remember. I’ve talked to my GP, but I haven’t had much luck.    Fatigue/sluggish Brain Fog Irritable/moody Anxious Disoriented at times No focus No motivation Constant Blocked sinus/switches sides Insatiable appetite stomach issues/IBS Reoccurring nightmares Never feel rested   Occasionally: Dizzy/nauseas Swollen occipital lymph nodes   Where do I start?  Who should I go see?  I’m currently gluten and dairy free, but I haven’t noticed much of a difference.        
    • Has anyone had trouble with any prescriptions they take that you then found out had gluten in them, or corn or soy products (or any other ingredient) that bothers you?   Just when I was working on lifting my mood up (after starting to feel overwhelmed with all this), I now am realizing I could be having problems with some prescriptions I have been taking.  I need to stay positive and not sink into frustration, but wow ,this is getting hard.  It seems every time I think I am getting there, it's another step backwards. I am on four prescriptions and so far only one has been said to have no gluten, soy, or corn in it.  One has pregelatinized starch, which I guess is made from corn.  The other two have corn ingredients.  One that has no gluten though will not claim to be gluten-free, they will only say they have no wheat, rye, barley, or oats in it, but will not give an actual gluten-free claim. But it has two corn ingredients anyway, corn starch and polysorbate 80. The other RX's would say no gluten, no soy, etc (but some have corn).   Has anyone had issues like this?  I was taking some of these many months ago when my stomach actually was starting to get back to normal and starting to feel better (when I first stopped eating gluten, took a few months but I was starting to feel better).  Slowly it started having issues again (although not as severe as when I was eating gluten). I then started a new RX, and I felt it made my stomach worse, told my dr, but she just seemed to think it "should not" bother me.  I wonder if that one is the culprit?  In other words, could the other 3 I am on not be enough of the corn ingredients to have been bothering me?  I am wondering if it's possible to have small traces of some corn ingredients (or whatever ingredients bother you, no counting gluten) without it bothering you?  Has anyone noticed a prescription they are on that does have an ingredient that tends to bother them (other than gluten), but in such a small pill, it does not seem to be enough to bother you?  I suppose it could be different for different people.  I am ready to start an elimination diet, but it feels like I still won't be able to know what bothers me or not until I am off any RX's that bother me.  This could take some time and research though.  I doubt I can just immediately stop all the RX's suddenly since some are for blood pressure.  Has anyone been through this?  I take my RX's every night at dinner so it would make sense that for a while now (especially since starting the newest RX) I feel like I am constantly having issues every night.  So far a pharmacist said that sometimes they can find different versions of a pill that won't contain the ingredients that bother you, but it does not sound like a guarantee, of course, and takes them some time to look into.  I guess I might have to start with that.  The newest pill though, the one I did suspect was causing me some stomach problems, I'll call my dr tomorrow (they are not in today) and see if I can stop taking that one.  Hopefully so, asap, and then continue to look into the other RX's.   I am trying to feel like once I get this straightened out it will get easier, but the pharmacist also said that companies can change their ingredients all the time, and even they sometimes change manufacturers they use.  I was just curious how many people deal with this, and does it get easier? Does your dr work with you and are understanding or do they get an attitude?  Because it almost feels to me like sometimes they get frustrated. And that just is aggravating. They think it's frustrating for them? It's no picnic for us either. They are quick to tell you what foods not to eat, but when it comes to a prescription they act like, oh, it shouldn't bother you.  I wish it were that easy.  I would think they would know better though??     
    • Good doctor   I had a similar experience but opposite.  My lab tests were negative (we figure now that I was too sick to eat much at the time) and my biopsy they were not able to get in far enough they said... so with symptoms and the appearance of my small intestine along with genetic testing I was diagnosed with Celiac.    Gluten free for almost 8 yrs now and doing much much better.
