20 Silly Things People Forgot About Because Of Fibro Fog

20 Silly Things People Forgot About Because of Fibro Fog
Have you ever forgotten your keys? Words like banana, elbow or shoe? What about your own birthday? If you live with fibromyalgia, you probably know that “fibro fog,” the term people with fibro use to describe brain fog, can cause you to forget the simplest of things. While this can be frustrating, and sometimes even scary, it can also lead to some very silly moments.
Fibro fog is caused by cognitive dysfunction, one of the main symptoms of fibromyalgia along with widespread pain and fatigue. Fibro fog can affect your memory, make you stumble over words and forget what you were saying.
As frustrating as fibro fog can be, sometimes, laughing at the ridiculous thing you just said can ease some of your frustration when you can’t find the word you are looking for.
That’s why we asked The Mighty’s fibromyalgia community to share some of the silliest things they’ve forgotten because of fibro fog.
