Q. In what way the brain fog symptom associated with fibromyalgia? In what way the brain fog symptom associated with fibromyalgia? What are the other symptoms of fibromyalgia?
A. memory loss is also associated with Fibromyalgia...lack of concentration and you just feel like you are in a fog...can't remember....can't think. Our standing joke at my house is "I am in the "fog" today. The one thing my doctor ALWAYS reminds me of fibro affects people differently, remember you may not have all the sympoms or you may have ones others don't but fibromyalgia is widespread pain that has lasted 3 months or more, it is pain of the fibrous tissue - ligiments, tendons and muscles. You feel stiff and achy all over. There are trigger points such as neck, shoulders, spine and hips. Chronic fatigue taht is possibly related to the disturbed sleep patterns. Most suffers I have talked to have restless leg syndrome and headaches. Irritable bowl is associated but on that one I am lucky I haven't had the problem but have had swolling problems and vision problems...I hope this helps. Good Luck!
Q. WHAT ARE SOME EYE DISORDERS ASSOCIATED WITH ALLZHEIMERS POTAAQU? MY MOTHERS BRAIN DOES NOT TELL HER EYES WHAT IT IS SHE IS LOOKING AT? THE DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HER WITH ALLZHEIMERS FIRST AND REALLY DON'T KNOW FOR SURE IF IT IS CAUSED BY ALLZHEIMERS OR IF THE EYE DISORDER IS HER MAIN PROBLEM WITH MEMORY.
A. Sight problems can generally be divided into two broad categories - problems with the eyes (i.e. problems with converting the rays of light to electrical impulses, actually seeing) and problems with the brain (i.e. problems with interpreting what we actually see). If you suspect she has a problem with seeing, it may be worth to consult an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) - they can usually check if the eye functions well, even if the patient doesn't fully cooperate.More discussions about Mental Health Association
If the eyes are found to be OK, than problems with the brain are usually addressed by a neurologist (nerves and brain doctor), although it's not sure a problem in this level is treatable.
