As most of you already know one of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia is BrainFog. This is described as being confused and muddled etc. As the years have gone on I have had increased brainfog to the point of complete confusion.
I have said for years now that I was worried it wasn't brainfog at all and was early onset dementia or Alzheimers. I get so confused at times and stop mid sentence totally blank with no idea what I was just saying. I ask the same thing over and over and totally forget I have, and to be honest it scares me.
A couple of nights back my fear was compounded by a news story on Sky News. They said that people taking certain over the counter medications and some anti depressants including Amytriptiline (which I have been taking for 12 years!) were at greater risk of developing Dementia!!
They said to take them in a low dosage for a short time! Hmmmm mine have been 75mg for 12 years hardly low or short. I want to go and see the GP to ask to be swapped to something else but I have tried most things already and non of them worked. So looks like I am stuck between a rock and a hard place, go mad or go mad with pain!!
Did you see the report and what did you think?
Here is a link incase you missed it.
Thanks for reading (if you did)
