About Thinking and Memory

Issues such as word-finding difficulties, concentration problems, and slowed thinking, often referred to as brain fog or fibrofog, are among the most challenging—yet often overlooked—symptoms of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), environmental sensitivities (ES), long COVID and chronic pain.

  • Cognitive symptoms are validated by numerous research studies. They are real and often disabling.
  • Problems with thinking and remembering may be related to insufficient blood flow to the brain, decreased energy production in the brain and neuroinflammation.

  • Interestingly, the energy problems experienced in the brain often mirror those in the body.
  • Pacing strategies that help manage physical energy levels can also benefit thinking and memory.

  • It's common for individuals experiencing cognitive difficulties to fear they may be developing dementia.
  • Of course, this is possible, but in most cases, cognitive symptoms are primarily linked to energy issues that can be effectively managed with the right strategies and support.

Remember, you're not alone. There are ways to support your cognitive well-being alongside managing other symptoms.
