How do you get away from CONSTANT 24/7 head fuzziness
Do any of you experience constant 24/7 fuzzy odd brain feelings in your head where you can't concentrate? That is the one thing that I am most scared of and I just can't seem to get away from it. I am not taking any medication...only natural supplements from a naturopathy doctor, but it makes me worried that there is something else wrong even after all the tests I have had. I have to work and this is totally effecting my life.
Thanks for your post on my other question. Try fish/cod liver oil. It helps depression, concentration and even autism. Studies show that it has completely reversed all of these. I'm taking Carlson's cod liver oil lemon flavored liquid but it comes in supplement form too. I read that EPA is better than DHA + EPA because your body already makes DHA but needs to EPA. I'd start with a low dose 1 tsp to see how your body handles it first. Ask your naturopath too. I was seeing a naturopath but the supplements weren't working for me. The cod liver oil seems to be good so far.
I just read your post on Fish Oil and had a question - Is 1200 Mg. in gel tablet form good to start? Should I take more? I have also heard good things about Omega-3. Should I take Cod liver oil also? Right now I only take the 1200mg. of fish oil, how long is it before you see results with anxiety?
I'm not sure how much is good. Definitely ask a natural doctor. They can be more helpful. The one I'm taking is liquid and 1100-1250 mg. fatty acids total. It's not a miracle cure, it does take time. But all the studies I've read and heard about say it works. You can probably search your phone book for a natural doctor (naturopathy doctor).
Hi I also suffer with what I call my funny head, Dont know about you but I dont have pain in my head its just a fuzzy dull, awlful feeling there on wakeing to going to bed, its also worse when I have to go shopping and I find it very difficult to stand and talk to people, Ive started avoiding people as it makes my head feel worse and I feel Im going to fall over it scars me to death and it is spoiling my life, does anyone else feel the same?
For two years now, I have had this light headed, non-spinning, VERY fuzzy. The way I describe it is that I feel like I have cotton balls or something in my head. My head doesn't HURT.. and I am not spinning.. But I just have this sensation that makes me feel like I want to close my eyes. It is even worse when I am in stores where I have to look at a lot of things, and it often makes me feel very nauseous. I feel like I always want to lay down and close my eyes, and feel this way from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to bed.
I have gotten many blood test, and EKG and and echocardiogram on my heart. I feel like I should get a brain scan, or something, but the doctors keep telling me I shouldn't worry since nothing is showing up. But It is so frustrating, and some days I just start crying and get really upset, because I keep thinking I have a tumor or cancer or something.
So then I get anxiety, which obviously escalates my symptoms. However, the doctors are like, well maybe you are feeling this was because you keep thinking you are dying and that you are worried. But I'm like..."I'm feeling worried because I have these symptoms!!" Do you know how I feel?
lately I have been having this headache feeling that feels like head pressure (which the doctors think is a tension headache from stress, as well as chest pain/heaviness, which I also think is from my worrying. I'm just so sick of dealing with this!)
I just want to figure out what is wrong. I eat extremely healthy, do yoga, get acupuncture, meditate, etc.
ahhh. Does anyone have any reassuring words or any idea of what I could have??
I have had the fuzzy head now for 3 years, amongst other things. it is horrible. my front lobe of my brain is permanently under tension. and i think the more we try to solve this diseas, the less we solve it. I have had so many tests done. I even had a physician work with me going through diseases for 3 months. all came up with nothing.
I have tried acupuncture, spiritual healing, shakras, exercise etc. the acupuncture helped a lot. My pains are in my shakra points of my body. which is wierd.
And how you described yourself is how I feel. I only have anxiety because i am ill. If I wasn't ill, then i would feel great.
And I would suggest something. what If we just accepeted that we had anxiety, really accepted it. and then just went out and lived our life knowing we have it. would it change the disease. Becasue this is a disease and a doozy. the harder we try to get rid of it the more it attacks us.
so, don't fight. don't even try. just go about our day for the next month accepting that at times we might fall over, get nauseas, not be able to see properly, and laugh at it. as if it is almost funny. then we could all log on here and laugh at our our inability to control this. would it make it go away.
I think by not thinking about it, the disease may go away. "what we resist persists"
do you really think i have anxiety?? I just keep worrying ... what if it is cancer? or a brain tumor? You know?? Which I know is making me feel so much worse. If i stop worrying do you think i'll stop feeling this way?
and what if it even was. a tumor or a cancer. Is it going to go away worrying about it.
Anxiety gives us more anxiety because we have anxiety. so, how to stop anxiety. not worying about anything. lot harder than what is sounds. as a disease is enough to get us worried in the first place.
I have been working on finding out why and it has made a big difference. and this means getting rid of the reasons why i was worried. however, i still have it. not as bad as what it was, but still there all the time.
i'll let you know if it works. it is what i have decided to do to get away from all of it.
Hey, I also feel fuzzy 24/7. The only way I can describe how I feel is drunk, but not. Like Drunk Vision but able to do and think everything fine. Well I cant say think fine as my anxiety is 24/7. Its weird, its like im moving around and doing things.. but when I think about it, its like im not actually here :S Derealisation is a horrible thing.. specially when its constant :( If only there was a cure. lol
Ive had these symptoms for about 5 years.. it hit one day while i was on holiday and ever since i thought it would wear off but i just hasn't. I've seen so many doctors and every one has said that im fine and ill grow out of it but my head feels constantly under pressure and it constantly feels as though im looking out of a box. There are lots of symptoms i have experienced over the past years such as i have been emotionless to change but the worst symptom is the cloudiness in my head as i cant remember anything without lots of rehersal, this doesnt help with college... i cant even remember what i did last saturday. But im glad that im not in this on my own, this is the first time i've seen people with the same symptoms and will try taking some omega 3 tomorow
i have only had these sensations for about 6 months
thick mental fog (clouding memory, judgment, speech, and concentration)
random muscle spasms and twitches
all which get worse with exercise or over exertion.
after months of extensive testing my doctor diagnosed me with chronic fatigue syndrome to which there is no known cure.
however, worrying about it DOES NOT help ... whether or not you accept your anxiety does not change the fact that its there and its there to stay.
accepting does make you feel alittle better, but it does not cure you. for several months there i laid in my bed wondering when death was going to come knocking on my door. then one night i woke up only to find my girlfriend balling her eyes out. she was just as scared as i was. after that i told myself that i have to fight this, for her and for my family. im not cured, but with each day i get alittle stronger. i have found however, a way to eliminate a majority of your physical symptoms .... the average human breathing pattern is 8 to 16 breaths per minute. chances are you think your not breathing enough but the truth is ... your probably hyperventilating. try breathing more with your diaphram also.
I suffered from symptoms identical to many on this thread for 2 months. I had a sensation of pressure/ fuzziness in the frontal loabs that would seem to move around to different parts of my head. It was a weird sensation that is hard to describe. I can best describe it as being very, very sleep deprived but not tired. I just wanted to lay down and felt like closing my eyes but this did not help much. The condition was around the clock and it was really impairing my ability to function. That said there was no pain, blurred vision, numbness or lack of cognitive function when it came to reading or thinking. The only thing that seemed to help at all was aerobic activity and that did not last long.
I have learned that I was repeatedly exposed to a petroleum hydrocarbon on the job. Initially it was just iritating but the fuzziness was the final symptom. It was rather nasty in that it would get into any porous material including my clothing and would stay there- getting into the house and remaining there for some time. I BELIEVE THAT THE FUZZINESS IS THE RESULT OF BECOMING HYPERSENSATIVE TO SOMETHING YOUR BOD/BRAINY IS ALLERGIC TO AND REPEATEDLY EXPOSED TO. Once I thouroughly ariated my house with positive pressure, cleaned my clothing, and stayed clear at the work place of any gas, the fuzziness went away. In my case it was this chemical compound, however, I can imagine that it may be true for other things such as plant allergens, pet allergens, food allergens etc.
I was shocked to see how many people suffered identical and characteristic symptoms as me, and to see how long they suffered. I WOULD ADVISE TRYING THE FOLLOWING FOR ANYONE SUFFERING FROM THESE SYMPTOMS: Go stay somewhere else for a several days and be as sterile as possible; away from work, and in a different locality, preferably in a different region. Ideally a motel in the middle of a desert subsisting on water. Pay minute detail to any potential exposure to chemicals or potential allergens ie. make- up, deordorant, medication, any food/pet/plant alergens, nicotine, caffeine- EVERYTHING. If your symptoms go away after a while you'll know something in your environment is getting you- something your injesting, breathing or absorbing threw skin contact. If the fuzziness does go away you can then begin eliminating the potential causes one by one. Radically alter your diet, move out of your house for several days, stay away from work, etc.
