I'm a 27 yr old male. About 3 years ago I started to develop these rather serious issues. My brain is very foggy. I forget things all the time like numbers, names, words, conversation with people, things that happen in movies, etc. I also forget important dates with my fiance' and our conversations (ouch!). And my promises I gave to my fiance' can forget about those. A lot of times I forget something that just happened not even 5 seconds ago. It seems as though the more I try to think of something, the quicker I'll forget about it.

To describe the brain fog, it feels like the brain is too big for my skull. There's a constant pressure in my head. I can feel this pressure behind my eyes as well. I don't physically see fog, but the feeling I get from it is like there's fog in my brain, and so everything I do I have to try harder to get through the fog. This foggy feeling is always there 24/7.

And then, a year ago I started to lose my balance. I can't seem to walk in a straight line. I bump into things all the time while doing things standing. When I walk, I get disoriented and my brain feels like it's spinning and things around me seem to be moving and blurry.

I can't focus AT ALL, period. I get distract easily and my mind wonders off all the time. I get sidetracked from things around me very easily.

My typing skill has deteriorated to the point where I have to go over all of the things I have just typed up. In the past I used be able to type above 70 words per minute no problem.

My speech skill is going down hill so fast it's not funny. Words just come out weird and confusing. Conversations are short and awkward, and they usually end when I say something that has nothing to do with the start of the conversation. I don't like being a quiet person, but a lot of times I have to keep my mouth shut, so I don't embarrass myself.

My reading skill is getting bad as well. My eyes try to skip ahead everytime I read, and I always have to read the same thing 2-3 times to get it, only to forget it about a minute later, of course.

A piece of information worth mentioning is that, when I sit up right and tilt my head down to where the top of my head points to the ground, my brain fog goes away like it's never there. But when I tilt my head back up, that priceless feeling goes away.

I have a lot of issues on my mind right now like financial and future marriage that is coming up. I would rate these issues extremely taxing on my mind, like they are always there in my mind no matter what I do. Could these be the reasons behind my symptoms? Oh, and I get about 6 hours of sleep 7 days a week. I eat semi-healthy and drink plenty of water. I exercise (45 mins of cardio) 2 times a week.

I need help big time. I want someone to chop my head open and see what's wrong with it. Would getting scanned tell me what's wrong with my brain? Who should I talk to about my symptoms? What is wrong with me?

Thanks for your help!!![/QUOTE]
Not sure if your still checking the boards, your symptoms caught my eye, for that's how mine started, check out the Health Issue of Chronic Fatigue on this board, if there still has been no dx. uvm
