I went to the doc this weak complaining of severe memory loss, as well as pain I'm my shoulders neck and head. When I forget something I have zero recall. My doc gave me a very basic memory test and said I was fine. I'm very frustrated as I know I'm not
After mentally focusing as long or intense as I can handle on a "less brainfoggy" afternoon (or hour), I am then more deeply exhausted than ever! It takes me DAYS (or longer) to recooperate back to "My usual."
It's BRAIN activity, not muscle activity. Why is my BODY deeply fatigued?

I was on Humira for only a short time. I did awesome with the first 3 shots, but when it came to the fourth shot I started getting nervous and couldn't press the button.

So I accidently pressed the button, wasn't ready and now I am off it because of having anxiety about it. I would love… read more
