All of my symptoms suck butt respectively on their own but the one that tops the charts for me is the cognitive disfunction (aka brain fog or fibrofog)
I see nonspoonie folk get ahold of brain fog posts sometimes and think they relate but it’s just so much worse and so much more frustrating for everyone than normal brain farts.
I forget important things, I can’t remember common words, I have delayed responses, forget what I’m saying, hearing what someone says but I can’t comprehend average sentences, light headed, hazy, bump into things, trouble navigating and judging distances.
It’s so painfully frustrating for me and it’s even harder when you see the people you interact with getting frustrated with you. They can’t help it and I try so hard but it doesn’t seem to matter. I mean, you don’t have a problem with any of these things normally and then BAM, a flare up hits and all of a sudden it’s like you have the brain capacity of a 6 year old.
I just feel like the equivalent of earwax sometimes.
