Hi all. Im not sure how common this would be for alot of us, but i think it might be. Before getting sick, i was very clear and sharp in the brain. Now obviously, as so many of u know, days are spent in a hazy fog not knowing what im doing or supposed to be doing. I had a test about 5 weeks ago or so, called a qEEG. You may know that an EEG is a standard test to look at the brainwaves and see how they are functioning. Well, a qEEG is a Quantitative EEG and it is approximately 100 times more sensitive than a normal eeg to look at the bands of the brainwaves. The test went for 3 hours, and had a tight cap on my head with wires comin out of it to measure the waves on the computer. I had to do many excercises on a screen, look at things, listen to things, try to remember lists, etc. I got the results back to the Dr i was seeing, and out of 81 brain functions they tested, 2 of mine were abnormal. Those were 'Memory' and 'Processing' which pretty much sums up brain fog. I always walk around the house not knowing what to do, just staring blankly and unable to start doing things. I think of something, walk to the next room and forget straight away. This is all the time. Also, the processing part, thats like making decisions, thinking of things u have to do in certain order efficiently etc. I can never do that. I can barely make decisions most of the time, and everythings a mess cause i dont know what to do with it. I was NEVER like this pre-CFS/FM, i was sharp and clear and knew what i was doing, got straight A's / distinction in my computer & networking diploma. The dr said i could try ADD medications to speed up the brain but u can get addicted to them fast, like ur brain needs them. Otherwise, hes trying me on some other things but it will probably be slow going because i have to detox the liver first using NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) and Glutathione, because my glutathionation is less than 10% functional! this proves and explains the severe chemical and drug sensitivity i have, as the glutathionation pathway is the major detoxifier of chemicals and drugs. I had the functional liver detoxification profile test from ARL - Analytical Referance Labs (This is the Australian branch of Great Smokies). I think the test is most worth having! Chris.
