Lets create a facebook group to keep us connected to solve this.
I've all the foggy problems.. can't find any useful resources to solve it. I suspect depression caused it and i still have it even my depression has gone away. Can we create a facebook group for this? Its more effective to find solutions that way. We gotta stick together if we are going to find a solution to this.

I'm gonna create one... hope you guys will join it and we will go out to find out solutions and keep each other posted.. will let you know later the facebook name

I feel like I'm in the exact same boat as you and was wondering if you have found any comfort. I feel like I'm foggy all day ever day. I use to suffer from anxiety but haven't even thought about it in years up until a couple weeks ago. I'm really hoping I can "get over" the anxiety like I did before because it is kind of ruining my life at the moment. As for the foggy head, I've had it for so long I can't even remember the last time I had a moment of clarity when I'm sober. When I'm drinking I don't really think about it or notice it. I'm currently taking a couple weeks off from any caffeine or alcohol along with picking up a little outdoor exercise. Reading this forum makes me think it could be anything, so many theories. I'm really trying not to get sucked into meds for the anxiety because I know that can't lead to a lifetime of using them. Let me know if you figure anything out.

Try CBT
I am a 25 year old female who suffered from OCD probably my entire life. I have also been tested for everything because it doesn't make sense that emotional problems have such physical symptoms... I tried every anti-depressant, ADD medication and sedatives to combat my anxiety. I finally learned about CBT-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It's about retraining your brain how to think.

Every feeling is associated with a thought, so if you change your thought you change your feelings. It's a very difficult thing to learn, like learning to only walk on your hands... You're going to fall and be tempted to take the easy road and walk on your feet again, but let me tell you, I am a completely different person because of it! It saved my life!

I still have bouts of cloudy-brain and exhaustion, but now I know what to do about it!
