Yes, I am feeling this way more often than not. The fatigue and ensuing brain fog are the most disabling parts of autoimmune for me. I can muscle through pain butvit is very hard to function when you feel like the plug on the drain has been pulled and you are sitting on empty.

Hi Angel, the brain fog and misuse of words i presume comes from the fatigue, which is brought on by inflammation and the body working to get rid of it. The humira is not the cause in fact hopefully it will get better once it reduces the inflammation.
I found out i have iron deficiency anemia so that wouldnt help but ive started taking iron and B12 this works tremendously! Its night and day with B12.

I completely thought I was alone in this!!! I'm amazed at how many other people are going through this too. I started mixing up the words right after my neck surgery. It gets so frustrating..my kids made fun of me not realizing how much it bothered me. And there are days when all I can do is lay down on the couch and try to watch TV..

Yes and I don't know what days it will happen! Some days I am on track on do things on time at work, other days I repeat things, can't speak right, words won't come! I have learned to use a lot of compensation mechanisms as I don't want to screw up at work as a nurse who gives people their pills!

Wow I have been having the brain fog, forgetting words, not remembering things and I just thought it was because I turned 50 and getting older but I knew there was something more to it
