Brain fog and Anxiety

Name : Sanjay
Age : 24
Height 6ft
Weight 93 kg (Fleshy body not a muscular one)
Nature of Work : IT (Don't like my job much)

Before answering the questions below.. Some points in brief

Issue--Brain fog,not feeing 100 % intellectually
Started 1999 during 10 boards
Academics Excellent till 10 grade(without hard work)... Vey good between 11-12 grade(with great amnt of hard work..The fog had set by then) Graduation --Good (bit with great mental exertion, anxiety, hard work,tension--The brain fog had intensified by then)

Other stresses--Anxiety 1st time when 15 years old academic reasons..Then there were economic difficulties(did not affect me personally vey much but was there at the back of my mind) around the age 15-18...then issues with home sickness 18-21..After that frm outside, life has been very good nothin to feel anxious abt very gud n stable job stable family everything good but it seems that the anxiety and brain fog carried over frm previous years has stayed on and intensified..

1. Describe your main suffering?
I look fine externally.No one other than me would notice that am uncomfortable.It's a strange kind of brain fog that hangs over me for most part of the day.I can do any task at ony about 60-70% efficiency.This troubles me bcoz I used to be very good in my school and can stil be very good.The major suffering i have is that am unable to study/read at a level which i was used to.In terms of studies,Am not even close to what i was in my school.Have found difficulty concentrating on studies since std Xi(8 years ago).Have good periods of around 3 hrs on most days where am about 80%(never 100) but most times i just drag on..My current intellectual level is more than enough for doing most of the jobs.But I have been looking to crack into a major MBA institute..To do that in India, I have to be moe than 100% in everything (The selection ratio here is almost 1:100)... I can't get to a top Business school in this condition. Even other than this difficulty, I find doing any work difficult.Some times even signing my name appears to be a difficult task.This feeling of mine has been on since 1999.Since there aren't any major symmptoms, Every night it appears that everything would be alright the next day but things always remain the same:(

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
Have no physical suffering as such. Tired of feeling miserable for about 8 years now, I googled and tested for hypothroisim.Found that was a mild case with TSH 7. Have been on 50mcg thyronorm and the TSH has been around 1 now for 3 months(have tested thrice in 3 months)...But the brain fog still remains...Doctor also found my Blood pressure to be slightly elevated and am taking amlong 2.5 for this condition.. No family istory of any illnesses. Am sure that all my ailments are stress related.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
As earlier said, the main issue is with the concentration level.Mind is always worried and anxious..Worry about past, future and many other trivial things though I don't want to..Have no problems in my life.Infact, I have a very good professional and family life.Am very jovial and fun on the outside even when i feel anything over 60% normal.Academics is the biggest issue..Also, I have this persistent thought that i need to lose weight.This is always on.I don't think about it but it is always in some corner of my head.Am pretty suspicious about many things.Since child hood I always felt that i did not look good when compared to other near ones...I was not ugly but just not perfect...Though before 15 i felt this only sometimes when I was among many people...Did not affect me much then though...always take time to open with strangers,, but once comfortable am pretty good...Normal for a south indian i wud say,,But not as lively as a north indian bloke..(iam a northie living in south since birth..So in can relate to this well)

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.
during worst periods,I have a headache in the forehead region.Have difficulty in perception , take repeated readings to understand, check everything three four times thinking that what i did was wrong.Very self conscious...

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

I can point it to the exact day i started feeling this. I was having the std 10 board exams.I was the first ranker throughout my school.But never felt that i was under any pressure.In fact, though i was a topper I was not the geeky one.I would watch TV a lot. play alot, laugh a lot --a typical 15 year old.Infact, i do not remember using the word tension during my first 15 years of my life..Had absolutely no pressure frm family or anyother quarter on my academics. Then suddenly one day, before one of the exams, i suddenly remembered having done a minor mistake in one of the previous papers and started imagining the worst..I stil remember the exact placewhere I felt weird for the first time..But exams went on and I got a pretty decent score..But since that day, Studying has been alwasy difficult and issues with academics have progressed form good to bad consistently.I still have a good record but it is nowhere close to my potential...For eg consider this, People who I easily outscore before 10 std have all gone to the Top institues of the country but am struggling to reach there..I know that i sound childish but am sayin this just o ensure that am getting the point across.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?
Usually afternoons after lunch

7 . What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.

Nothing as such..

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli
I always feel that because of my issues, i have let down myself and my family.Though still in a very decent job, I should have still achieved more.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather
Don't feel anything different with weather,Though i enjoy rains.

10.Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

Believe in being a good human being..have good general knowledge..Crazy abt cricket since i was 10.always wacthed TV a lot...

11.What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
No dreams as such...Fear that i might not achive wht iam capable of

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?

Dear Sanjay,

Can you please answer the following questions:

1./) Please elaborate more on : 'Very moody(jovial when brain fog is not strong,,,reserved when the fog is thick) Lazy now bcoz of the above issues.Arguing=-Yes,Easily offended.Suspicious' ,
just describe yourself, you don't have to restrict to the words in the question you originally answered.

2./) Do you act selfishly at times ?

3./) How has your stamina been since childhood ? Let's say are you comfortable running ?

4./) Have you ever had a 'Sensation of a hair on the tongue' ?

5./)How much worry do you take about your family ? How caring and attached are you to them ?

sameervermani last decade
By being moody, what I mean is when the fog is not thick and when there is no hangover , I wud respond well to people.Say, in case anyone asks me to clear a doubt, I wud tell him everything in detail .In short, I wud be comfortable that I have done what i sud have But when the fog is thick I wud just say the minimum possible things... I wud work just enough to be safe and doing any work would be difficult..

I argue with people when i feel they are wrong but it is always in a very relaxed atmosphere usually over a coffee or during lunch breaks..

By easily offended, i mean that if somone calls me a fat or something or if some one tells me that i ain't gud enough for something I wud be offended.. I won't be overtly emotional abt it but i will be offended... Though this has not happened a lot..It happened may be 7-8 times during my childhood..

By suspicious, i mean that before trying any thing i would google it to be sure.. If any stranger approached me on road for something(like a lift), I would be not talk much to him... If some work has to be assigned I would think twice before assigning to anopther person and stuff like that... Nothin very different but i don't close my eyes and believe what anyone else says...
sanjay1212 last decade
2. Do you act selfishly at times ?
Yes i do act selfishly some times but only in a very subtle way as anyone would... I feel that I act normal as anyone else would.. But i take care not to offend anyone.. I have never had a fight with anyone... I would never cheaply fight for something if I feel that the other person deserves something more than me.

3.How has your stamina been since childhood ? Let's say are you comfortable running ?

I have always been slightly overweight(not obese) and have never been a very fast runner But i have played a lot during my school days without much difficulty.. Even now, I can walk long distances without any trouble..Don'yt run much these days...In fact, just last year I sort of went on a 30 km (up and down) trek...Completed it and did not have any major issue with it...

4 .Have you ever had a 'Sensation of a hair on the tongue'

No, never...Unless ofcourse there is a hair on my tongue :)

5.How much worry do you take about your family ? How caring and attached are you to them ?

I am very attached to my parents..am single.. Taking care-- I just go to office and come home I Don't take any particular care of my parents..I love them, they love me a very normal indian Family... I don't overtly show my affection towards my parents..But i guess most people don't..But yes, I want to make them happy..I want them to be proud of me..Again, a very typical expectation, i guess...
Hope I have answered ur question....

Thanks for responding Sameer!
sanjay1212 last decade
I have two remedies in mind, however , I would need some more info to differentiate them :

1./)Do you get irritated often ?

2./)Do you have any digestion issues apart from constipation , like bloating or anything else?

3./) Do you have arguments just because of ego at times ?

4./) Do you have convictions about which do not argue even seeming to acquiesce to another's viewpoint though internally keeping your own?

5./) Are you anxious about trifles ?

6./) Do you have any undue fear of pointed objects ?

sameervermani last decade
Adding one more question..

7./) Do you have offensive foot sweat ?
sameervermani last decade
1./)Do you get irritated often ?

Yes, i do..Stuff like Traffic,TV soaps,Non sense talks..These really irritate me..

2./)Do you have any digestion issues apart from constipation , like bloating or anything else?

No, just constipation..

3./) Do you have arguments just because of ego at times ?
As said before, i do have arguements..but most of the times it is just for fun during tea breaks..Ego,, I do fhave superiority and inferiority complexes soewhere inside me in a small corner but never bring them to surface...

4./) Do you have convictions about which do not argue even seeming to acquiesce to another's viewpoint though internally keeping your own?
Most,if not all times, i do say what I believe in

5./) Are you anxious about trifles ?

Yes, sometimes small things like socks or shoe polish or any other small thing does bother me....

6./) Do you have any undue fear of pointed objects ?
I wud not say undue...But i wud certainly be careful if there are any pointed objects near by...

7./) Do you have offensive foot sweat ?

Thanks again Sameer!!

Dear Sanjay,

Please take 3 doses of Silicea 30C even spaced on a single day. No more doses after this.

2 drops of Silicea in 1 spoon filtered water is 1 dose.

No eating/drinking on either side of the dose for 1 hr.

Report status 5 days after the 3 doses.

Good luck.
sameervermani last decade
Thanks Everyone...Sammer,Rishi,Faisal U people are Great Thanks again....
sanjay1212 last decade
It is me again...I wanted to ask a very basic question to everyone...Plz don't take offence to it)am just a needy patient).What are the chances (in %) that I will be completely cured by homeopathy and how long sud i try it..I don't understand myself..My symptoms r such that I can live with them forever but the quality of life wud not be great.I'm unable to thinka at all...I used to be a brilliant student(not using this term lightly) but now am an average person...I loath myself often bcoz i know that my negative attitude has caused all my issues...
A strong cup of tea or coffee always brings me to 85% for the next 45 minutes...
sanjay1212 last decade
The chances are very high. But since we have not met you, we might need not hit the correct remedy in the first attamept. A hefty portion of the observation comes from a face to face meeting and observing the patient directly in a first hand setting
sameervermani last decade
You can ask me anything u wanna know...Some more things abt me..Am very very ambitious.Since i was very good in school, i had no issues with my ambitions but now i get disappointed every day bcoz am unable to do justice to any work...
One more thing I would like to say--I sort of constantly worry abt my weightinvoulantarily.. ..I do not want to worry but i feel some connection between my head and the stomach but this feeling disappears after havin a tea or a coffee..Ths is funny bcoz if I was really worryin abt something a tea or a coffee should not make me forget my internal worry.

Also, I feel close to normal during times of joy(weddings,cinema etc) and during sadness or disappointment.But at normal times there is a costant brain fog...Since most of the time one is neither sad nor ecstatic, the brain fog is present for a greater part of the day....
Every nite I thnk that tomorrow i will be alright is not to be..Iam sure that everybody has some day when he feels exactly as I do but the problem is that I have feen feeling like this for 9 years and this has killed the joy in my life...I can be a very jovial person.
I haven't yet startd the remedies suggested in the forums..I went to a homeopathy doctor couple of days before I posted my issues here...He prescribed me some medicines..He did not name them just gave them to me..There r 3 very small cases with small pills which taste like sugar and a liquid which tastes like beer(not 100% since i hav never had a beer).am supposed to have 2 spoons of liquid in the night and 9 pills(3 frm each bottle) twice a day..
have been taking them for abt 11 -12 days no effect yet..I will run out of the medicines in a week and then I will follow the recommendations made in the forum ...Iam not convinced abt my doctor bcoz he did not ask me many questions at all..In fact, I was tellin him everything he should have asked me...
Plz continue with ur support.
sanjay1212 last decade
Mr. Sanjay,

The prescription you are taking sounds like incorrect to me for 2 reasons.

a) We never give 2 medicines at a time in homeopathy as the vital force is not capable of responding to two medicines at one time.

b) The medicine seldom needs to be repeated for this long. Just 2-3 doses of 1 potency are enough to start the curative process. And, every dose one the curative process has started acts as interference if it is administered before the process has come to a complete halt.

There are many bad homeopaths in India and you seem to have chosen one for sure.

sameervermani last decade
Any other suggestion based on my latest inputs...I will start with ur recommendations in abt 5 days...
sanjay1212 last decade
My suggestion remains the same as above.

And, do not take 2 remedies together as that will spoil your case further.

sameervermani last decade
I think you need to do a search online for symptoms of Candida Albicans. You need to check out a book called the Yeast Connection.
I was you for 7 plus years. I am now on the yeast free diet and my monthly and sometimes bi-monthly stops at the doctor's office have subsided.
bentherat last decade
I don't think it is Candid bcoz i have never had any physical symptoms at all...I have been stressed for a long time and i guess that this brain fog is a result of that.. If Candid was the cause, i wudn't feel different at different times..Right now, i do have moments when am 100% normal..
sanjay1212 last decade
Mr. sanjay,

I would recommend a gap of atleast 1 week between the medicines you are taking and my prescription. Sometimes INIMICAL remedies (to the next remedy) have been prescribed and that can cause aggravations. Infact, it would be great if you could find out what remedies were prescribed to you.

sameervermani last decade
I have got the Silica..It has ben 3 days since i quit my doctor's prescription...As u suggested, would give a couple of days more before taking Silica...Can i expect any change immediately or only after 5 days?
sanjay1212 last decade
Well I cannot say , how you will react to the remedy, it varies from person to person and is very difficult to predict.

sameervermani last decade
I have had silicae 30C for one day now....Should i continue or stop taking it...
sanjay1212 last decade
You should stop and wait for a week.
sameervermani last decade
Ok,I shall wait for a week and report my status thereafter. Thanks a lot Sameer...
