Cognitive Fog
mattcityy posted:
Lately, I have been experiencing what might describe as "cognitive fog". I started to become extremely stressed. But after a while it started to get better. I would get really bad headaches, and I wouldn't go to sleep. I felt like I was living in a dream. All of that has gone away except for this new thing that is happening with my brain. I feel really different, and emotionless. The back of my brain seems to hurt a lot, and there's pressure on it. I'm not doing well in school, and I seem to not have a memory anymore. I would think of something but I would forget it after a while. I forget what happened yesterday, it's all unclear. When I try to think my brain has a lot of pressure on it. My muscles are starting to tense up, and my neck is sore. I haven't been social lately either. I can't talk people anymore because I have nothing to say to them. My brain doesn't come up with things to say, and I have loss of words. My speech seems to be getting worse. This is bothering me. It takes me a while for me to think of something. I can't memorize anything anymore. I usually forget it. All the thoughts in my head don't make sense. If i try to explain something, it would not make sense. I just feel something is wrong with my brain and that I can't be happy anymore. I've lost all my motivation to do anything, and I really want this to end.

Dear mattcityy
I am sorry you are having so many problems. It seem like stress is an issue. I would suggest you see a doctor and talk about these.

I do not think you have parkinson's disease
