    1. Hi ,

      The simple answer is absolutely. This is something I struggle with on a daily basis. It's easily upsetting as I want to feel sharp and energized. The hardest part is that I feel I am unable to remember things as well as the people around me. To combat this I try my best to write as many things down as possible. For me, this includes things I need to do, any thoughts I have, and experiences in my life. I also try to play brain games to keep my mind stimulated. These techniques really help me and make me feel like I have a better handle on my brain fog.

      Best of luck!

      1. Perfect timing! I wrote an article about my experience with brain fog and it was just published today. You can read it here: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/brain-fog-memory-loss/

    2. We all deal with this issue! It tends to wax and wane. Brain fog seems to be worst for me prior to and during a flare. Talk with your rheumatologist .
