How To CLEAR Brain Fog Fast + What causes Brain Cloud?

Brain fog doesn’t have a single official definition or medical diagnosis. Instead, it’s often a cluster of cognitive symptoms that people experience. Brain fog can be a lot of things to different people, too. It can include any or all of the following:
Trouble focusing.
Difficulty staying attentive.
Trouble remembering familiar details like names, places or words.
Slow reaction times and information processing.
General fatigue or lethargy.
Cloudiness in judgment.
Frequent loss of train of thought.Brain fog is a sort of manifestation of some type of inflammation or chronic stress response,” explains Dr. Krishnan. “Chronic stress can have secondary effects. It impacts your sleep, your nutrition and your physical ability. Those secondary issues can lead to or be associated with psychiatric disorders.”
Here are some common conditions associated with brain fog symptoms.You experience a range of hormonal changes during each trimester. When these hormonal changes occur, your brain tries to restore balance by releasing and suppressing certain hormones to level everything out. You may experience brain fog because of this constant flux of hormones or because of other stressors that can occur even early in your pregnancy.
“In your first trimester, you may have more nausea, poor nutrition, insomnia or lack of sleep, or other increased stressors for a variety of reasons. All of these things can manifest as brain fog,” says Dr. Krishnan.Brain fog has been getting its 15 minutes of fame thanks to COVID-19 and all its related symptoms. In fact, brain fog is one of the top three symptoms often listed by long-haulers, who experience prolonged symptoms or delayed symptoms weeks and sometimes months after initial infection.
“People who have been in the ICU or required more severe forms of treatment tend to experience more brain fog,” notes Dr. Krishnan.
The trouble, Dr. Krishnan points out, is that long-haulers and people who’ve recovered from COVID-19 often also experience other symptoms that can lead to brain fog. This includes trouble sleeping, increased stress or mood levels, or a significant change in their diet or nutrition.
“All of these factors can also contribute to brain fog,” he says.
So, it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s causing the brain fog — COVID-19 or these other closely related symptoms. One major hypothesis is that brain fog related to COVID-19 may actually be a result of having a cytokine storm (also known as cytokine release syndrome).Depression and its relation to brain fog is kind of like asking what came first, the chicken or the egg? One can often lead to the other and vice versa. One common reason for this may be because of neuroinflammation caused by the constant activation of your hypothalamus pituitary adrenal pathway.
“That’s your body’s fight-or-flight response,” explains Dr. Krishnan. “If your body is in a constant level of activation, it can have negative side effects and present as depression or anxiety because it has that inflammatory response.”
Brain fog associated with depression or anxiety often feels like constant fatigue or a general sense of malaise.
