Taking brain fog seriously..... 

Came across this excellent article tonight on a fibromyalgia Facebook page. It is lengthy but worth reading:

Cognitive impairments associated with CFS and POTS

Cognitive dysfunction is second only to severe exhaustion as the cause of my inability to work. It is also very rare to get anyone to take it seriously. I had a neuropsyche test done in 2004, and it showed measurable deficits. But the guy who had administered it tried to blame the results on depression when I was not depressed. Depression does not cause problems like inability to recognize faces or loss of IQ. I hope a lot more research is done, especially regarding the impact of cognitive dysfunction on our quality of life.
