Brain fog has been one of my greatest challenges lately...and what to do about???...I would love to hear some answers. I also get extremely embarassed because...get this...I'm a SPEECH/LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST!! Try losing your thougts in mid-sentence, having extreme word-finding disorder, and speech problems when you're a professional SLP!! Now I'm actually having spells where my motor planning is malfuctioning (where I know exactly what I want to say...but my articulators...mouth/tongue/jaw/etc....won't cooperate or move correctly and it all comes out as jibberish). This is actually termed "Dyspraxia". People look at you and wonder what you're doing in this field! I'm fixing to put in my letter of resignation because it/and my sick days have gotten so extreme. I even have spells where I stutter or repeat whole phrases/sentences (and ask myself...why did I just repeat myself????) Is anyone else out there having trouble with their speech, besides just their thoughts/language? I realize that my speech problem could be the cause of some other underlying disease/disorder. They are still running tests on me for other symptoms of mine (neurological). I guess I'm just asking if FMS can cause speech disruption, being that it deals entirely with motor functioning. I'm newly diagnosed and I'm still learning / researching this syndrome. Anyone with answers??
