    I read recently that Brain fog is now called cognitive dysfunction

    much better name for it - POTSies, EDSers, and PWME all seem to have it
    FM people called it fibro fog

    this is a better name IMO

    Anyone agree ...a good new term or not descriptive enough?


    Cheers,

    I thought it was always called in medical circles cognitive dysfunction, the terms we use are just kind of slang "fibro fog", "brain fog". Medical professions dont usually use the language we do and have their own terms for things we have eg congnitive dysfunction.
