5 Reasons You Might Be Experiencing Brain Fog

Brain fog may not sound like a serious health issue to most, but it can be a symptom that can drastically impact your life if left untreated.

What is brain fog? Brain fog is loosely defined by the following:

  • Forgetfulness
  • Difficulty in processing thoughts
  • Easily distracted
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue
  • A general feeling of “being in a fog”

What Is Causing Your Brain Fog

Not Enough Sleep
Sleep impacts more areas of the body than you may realize. Maintaining a proper sleep routine helps reset your body and helps your brain’s neurons to properly function and communicate. A lack of sleep, especially long periods of sleep deprivation, can negatively affect your memory, response times, and energy level.

Certain medications are known to cause brain fog in some users. Over-the-counter and prescription medications that alter cognition include sleep aids, antihistamines, high blood pressure medication, etc. Always make sure to read the medical information included with any medication. 

If you feel like your brain fog is related to a medication you are taking, speak with your health care professional for further assistance.

Underlying Conditions
A number of underlying conditions may be the cause behind the brain fog you are experiencing. Some of these conditions include fibromyalgia, migraines, bipolar disorder, lupus, depression, and many more. 

Brain fog can even be a symptom of past brain trauma – like a concussion – that has the potential to develop into memory loss or more serious cognitive impairment. Most diseases caused by chronic inflammation (eg: diabetes, MS) can also cause brain fog symptoms.

Imbalanced Hormones
Hormonal imbalances such as a thyroid imbalance or menopause are known to cause forgetfulness and fatigue that can be categorized as brain fog. These conditions are more commonly seen in older women but are not exclusive to that population. Alterations in testosterone or growth hormone levels can also have consequences for mental clarity.

Nutritional Deficiency
Brain fog can be caused by some nutritional deficiencies. Some included are iron deficiency, folic acid deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, magnesium deficiency, and etc. 

Nutritional deficiency causes brain fog by reducing the body’s ability to maintain full and proper brain function due to low levels of certain nutrients. This can sometimes be the most difficult cause of brain fog to determine.
