FMSSAS eNews 12.04.21

Hi everyone
What a wet week we have had!  But wet is welcome at the moment and the more we get the better it is for vegetation, reservoirs and rivers.  At the moment the sun is shining but I believe more rain is on its way.  I prefer warm weather and sunshine myself but for the common good I’m pleased to perceive some precipitation!
67.  The bad news is that time flies.  The good news is that we are the pilots.

Fibro Fog and Dyscognition
Otherwise known as “fibro fog,” dyscognition is the new medical term researchers are using to describe symptoms related to difficulty concentrating, disorganized thinking, memory problems, and inability to stay focused or alert. According to neuro-psychologist Jennifer Glass, Ph.D., at the University of Michigan, “These cognitive symptoms are often more troubling to the patient than other symptoms.
Underlying Skin Sensitivities
Does your skin burn or itch? Do you frequently get rashes that just won’t go away? These are common symptoms of fibromyalgia, but why? Studies during the past 20 years may offer possible explanations.
Are You Unknowingly a Victim of Unnecessary "Adrenal Fatigue"?
Do you feel constantly tired, moody and depressed?  Do you wake up feeling tired even after a full night’s rest? Do you crave sugary and salty foods, and depend on your morning coffee just to keep your eyes open?

These are all common symptoms of adrenal fatigue -- a condition caused, in short, by too much stress and work. It’s estimated that up to 80 percent of adults suffer from adrenal fatigue, yet it continues to be a largely ignored and overlooked health problem, according to Dr. James Wilson, author of "Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress".
