      HI.My brainfog was getting so bad,I.am off treatment,that I decided to do something about it.My Doc said if it does.nt go away I hve to see a neurologist.I went to a . ,person who knows a lot about food-supplements.She advised MSM and multi.vit.(the group also advised this)I bought MSM-vitals and multi from douglas lab,it has little iron in it.Coul.dnt get sup without iron.And you know what it helps.After a week my brainfog is getting less.Still hve this faint headache but that feeling that you are floating is getting less.Also the flickering of the eyes is getting less.Short memory is also better.Hope it will go on improving.If I relapse again,that would be the fourth time,I hve the promise that I can participate in a trial starting january with protease inhibitors at the Acadamic Hospital in Amsterdam.Right now I.am going to be a turtle who will put his Hep in the shell and going to enjoy my summer,whether my liver likes it or not.LOL.William.

      Subject: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] brain fog

      I think that brain fog has a lot to do with ammonia build up in the brain.. and trying to remember what causes that.. think maybe too much red meat.. i used to study and research a lot about hep c..but i have the brain fog.. cant concentrate so much .. so i am not sure but know it is ammonia in the brain... I used to work for a big finance company but the brain fog really messed me up .. too much pressure and stress.. now i make 1/3 the income and hus left me in middle of treatment .. so my income level went down but, you know what, that didnt bother me so much. Hep C has made me look at life differently... i try to avoid stress .. in my situation that means .. dont worry .. LOL.. hard at times but i concentrate on the good in my life now .. and hus leaving was probably a good thing... now thinking of going back to teaching but scared.. as is a big responsibility to the kids.. but was love of my life at one time .. to teach.. did it for 10 years.. oh well .. we shall see what God has in store for me.. am applying for a fellowship to get a certificate to teach deaf education.. what i always wanted.. i do still have the hep c and cirrhosis but is like the report said.. the combo treatment may not have cleared me but it really improved things for me .. even tho i have cirrhosis.. doc hasnt pushed the new treatment as i am doing ok for now and treatment can almost make it so i can not work... i have a good job .. not high pay but good insurance and flexible schedule that helps when i am sick... well enuf bout me.. i just wanted to say .. that brain fog can be lessened by eating habits i believe... now if i can get back to good ones again.. LOL.. was easier when treatment inhibited my appetite.. started bicycling and is doing me wonders too.. well i dont contribute often but do read most all postings and this is .. like someone said .. an ACTIVE group
