Hepatitis C Symptoms

Brain fog

  • By GypsyRock

    Hi! Has anyone found any treatments or strategies to combat brain fog? Also has it gone away or gotten better for you after treatment?

    Hi GypsyRock! Thank you for your question, it’s a great one! I’m so sorry to hear you’re experiencing brain fog, however, please know you’re not alone in this aggravation. Many of our community members report this as one of the most common (and frustrating!) experiences they encounter within their HepC battle. While others in the community may be able to share their thoughts and experiences with you, I wanted to share a few articles on brain fog, and some tips on how to combat it. You can find these here,

    You Might Be Zoned Out When…

    Also, if you look at this article, one of our community experts write that it’s a good idea to keep track of your brain fog and report it to your provider if you notice any changes! If you haven’t already talked to your provider about this though, it may be a good idea to bring it to their attention! Let us know what they say if you do!

    I’m so sorry to hear you’re encountering this frustration! Please know we’re here for you!!

    Best, Casey ( Team)

    I have terrible brain fog, and I went through treatment seven yesrs aago. It is frustrating. I developed chronic illness post treatment. Hopefully, the new treatments are much better. I know they are a lot easier to go through.
    The best thing I do for brain fog, is to simply take a break. I lie down witb eyes closed and rest.
    Hang in there!
