Brain fog is not a medically recognized term but is a commonly used phrase that sums up feelings of confusion, forgetfulness, and lack of focus and mental clarity. Having brain fog is fairly common, but it’s not normal. There are many reasons for loss of focus or “Brain Fog”:
- Sleep deprivation
- Hormone changes
- Thyroid problems
- High protein diets
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Technology overload
- Adrenal fatigue
- Substance abuse or withdrawal, prescriptions
- Too little exercise, unhealthy diet
- Hangovers or drinking too much alcohol
Loss of focus usually falls into two categories—it can be lifestyle induced or come as a side effect for a medical condition.
Those experiencing the issue should see a doctor to rule out a related and underlying medical condition.
