Different Causes of "Brain Fog"

Posted by on in TBI
b2ap3_thumbnail_Brain-Fog.jpg * Rheumatoid Arthritis - Most people think of joint pain when it comes to arthritis. Medical experts, though, now know that conditions that cause chronic inflammation—like rheumatoid arthritis—often have another effect: They cause brain fog. * Lupus - Some people with lupus have trouble with memory, thinking and expressing themselves. They can feel "foggy" and confused sometimes, too. * Fibromyalgia - The most common symptom of fibromyalgia is chronic widespread pain. But, people who have it often complain of symptoms like forgetfulness, trouble with conversations, and short-term memory loss. * Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Chronic fatigue syndrome affects millions of Americans. Though "fatigue" is in the name, feeling extremely tired is just one of many symptoms. People with this condition often have muscle and joint pain and problems sleeping. They also complain of brain fog—memory problems and trouble paying attention. (Healthgrades.com) Continue reading

Posted by on in TBI
b2ap3_thumbnail_baltimore-ravens.jpg * The family of 55-year-old Joseph Bauer, who was beaten at Sunday's Ravens game and hospitalized, reported encouraging signs from the hospital Tuesday. * The Jessup man remains in critical condition with a brain injury, but he has given a thumbs-up at the request of doctors. * "We have been encouraged by some signs we believe indicate he recognizes his wife," said Susan Bauer, his sister. "The trauma doctor said she is 'cautiously optimistic' about his progress and he is trending in the right direction." * Joseph Bauer, however, continues to breathe on a respirator, she said. The Ravens season-ticket holder suffered a severe brain injury at the game. * Police charged two men from New York with assault, and Ravens Coach John Harbaugh called the alleged attack "absolutely inexcusable." * Nappi told police that the men argued, and Bauer threw a bottle that hit Smith in the head, police said in charging documents. Only plastic and aluminum bottles are sold at the stadium. * Nappi told police he punched Bauer in the face, police said. Bauer's wife, Sharon, told police Smith shoved Bauer to the ground and he hit his head. * Bauer was knocked unconscious. (BaltimoreSun.com) Continue reading

Hillary Clinton's Team Negates Any Serious Medical Issues

Posted by on in TBI
(Dear Friends, at Adam TBI Recovery, if there are any conflicting points of view - we will present both. - Alex) b2ap3_thumbnail_hillary-clinton-2.jpg * Hillary Clinton says she got dizzy but didn’t lose consciousness when she stumbled on the way out of the 9/11 memorial Sunday. * “I felt dizzy and I did lose my balance for a minute, but once I got in, once I could sit down, once I could cool off, once I had some water, I immediately started feeling better,” Clinton said. * She said she didn’t immediately disclose that she’s been diagnosed with pneumonia because she “just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal.” “It’s just the kind of thing that if it happens to you and you’re a busy, active person, you keep moving forward,” she said. * “Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, said in a statement. “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.” (Cbs.com) Continue reading

* (Dear Friends, with the new school year back in action, and many of our children riding their bikes back and forth, wearing a helmet is a must in helping prevent a TBI occurrence. Alex) b2ap3_thumbnail_Richard-bronson.jpg * Richard Branson has a new lease on life. The 66-year-old billionaire and Virgin Group founder survived a terrible bike accident in the British Virgin Islands this week, and turned to social media and his company’s website on Friday to share how he miraculously cheated death. * “I was heading down a hill towards Leverick Bay when it suddenly got really dark and I managed to hit a ‘sleeping policeman’ hump in the road head on,” Branson explained on his Virgin.com blog. “The next thing I knew, I was being hurled over the handlebars and my life was literally flashing before my eyes. I really thought I was going to die. I went flying head-first towards the concrete road, but fortunately my shoulder and cheek took the brunt of the impact, and I was wearing a helmet that saved my life.” (Yahoo.com) Continue reading
