Brain fog
Cambo_0 posted:
I had a really bad flare last week. Every joint in my body hurt, I was more fatigued than I have ever been before, and my brain wasn't working like normal. I know people with Fibro. And one side effect is brain fog: can't think straight, can't focus, memory goes, and they can say weird things that don't make sense. During my RA flare my brain just freaked out and that brain fog is the best way I can describe it, but I don't have fibro. Can people with RA have that "brain fog" at times?
