Try this for at least 2 weeks. It can't hurt, will likely do some good, and may help your symptoms a bit:
-Get enough sleep
-Eat good, solid, healthy food. Cut out all artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, corn syrups, additives, preservatives. Lots of fruits, veggies, nuts, and simple, clean foods. I know it's hard to do. It isn't until you try to do this for 2 weeks that you really realize just how much crap is in our food. My one daughter loses her mind if she gets artificial colors, so some of our brains really can't handle some of these chemicals.
-Take your vitamins religiously
-drink plenty of water (your brain kind of shrinks without it)
- gets at least 30 minutes exercise a day, even if it's just a brisk walk. Amazing how much that can clear your head.
You're at the age where you're still changing hormonally. Hormone changes can absolutely give you brain-fog.
I contracted a virus when I was in my 20's that gave me very similar symptoms to what you have. It took years to clear up completely, and still flares up now and then.
As mentioned, thyroid problems can cause this.
I'm sure many other things can cause it as well.
Do try to see your Dr, especially since you'be had a concussion.
