FIBROMYALGIA  

Fibromyalgia and Cognitive Function


Most fibromyalgia patients report having problems with memory and cognitive functioning. The cognitive functioning difficulties FM patients must cope with include:
  • Short-term memory loss

  • Difficulty with concentration

  • Inability to retain what is read

  • Word-finding difficulty

  • Inability to calculate numbers

  • Slowed comprehension

  • Impaired speech

  • Inability to keep track of things

  • Problems with reasoning
Fibromyalgia patients have coined the term "fibro fog" to describe their cognitive functioning problems. It's an accurate description because it feels as if your brain is in a thick fog, unable to "see" its surroundings.

For some tips to help you cope with and improve your cognitive functioning, read "Clearing the Fog: Coping with the Cognitive Dysfunction of Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."
