To start: I’ve had brain fog for all 19 years of my life. And until recently, I had no idea of the severity. But after some difficult life events, I was placed *temporarily* on an antipsychotic (Seroquel to be specific) and after some turbulence, I noticed that my head was cleared up, that I could see clearly, and that physical and mental issues that I’d dealt with my whole life started vanishing. My memory was helped and hindered simultaneously, the working memory seemed broader but my recall took a bit of a hit. But, rolling with it I was able to enjoy things(movies, food, etc.) like never before. I felt normal for the first time in my life. For a week or so things were pretty good(aside from some side effects), but then my dopamine started dropping and in response, I began tapering off the Seroquel, which offset the drops. It took a few months to taper off and as that happened, I noticed that physical issues such as: Irritable Bowel Syndrome Reflux, coughing up mucus Blurry and static vision Poor Coordination (certain parts of my leg feel unresponsive, makes taking walks difficult) Fatigue Tension/creaky joints Disappeared little by little, and then came back as I returned to my old self. Some mental issues also returned, such as: depersonalization, depression, my narrow memory(recall was back though), inability to multitask, slight agitation. All in all, my working memory is back to its’ old self. I was able however to feel a sense of continuity to things that I’d never felt before, instead of single moments strung together by recall there were larger chunks so to say. It take in an entire scene, instead of being forced to focus on one thing at a time. Now it feels like my memory/mind has been reduced to a narrow view port or an increasingly narrow box instead of the open mind that I had for a little while, at least.) I tried taking an antidepressant recently and it made the fog worse, so I had to stop after two doses. My goal would be to find out how to treat the underlying cause of this condition without something as excessive as an antipsychotic. Also, I do follow a regimen for my health: I exercise when possible. I eat a balanced diet(gluten and dairy free). Adequate sleep. I take a multivitamin, vitamin d, half of a b-complex, fish oil, a probiotic, and a combination pill of zinc/magnesium/calcium. I also take NAC. I’ve been tested for allergies, lectin sensitivity, I’ve had my hormones tested, and a number of other tests but nothing has come up positive. I’m planning on seeing a neurologist and taking a test for mitochondria. Any questions? Any thoughts? Perhaps I left something out? Sorry if this comes off as a little disjointed.
