Thats because we live in an over prescribed world. You tell the doctor you lose focus...here's some ritalin. However, a lot of our problems come down to what we eat.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

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.

Like the Paleo diet? My mom recently went on that and a gluten free one but theres so.much bad stuff in everything, even fruits and veggies are GMO, ill try to buy from a farmers market or try to get a garden, but im definately giving up artificial foods.

I dont think it could be a thyroid problem though.

thanks for the help :)

I only drink soda occasionally, I cant stand people who drink it like its water.

As mentioned, check vitamin levels. One that kind of depends on where you live is vitamin D. I live in Maine, and this winter my vitamin D levels dropped so low, that I was tested for mono. I was lethargic and spacey.

Also, could be iron. I get REALLY anemic if I don't take iron every day. I get spacey and light headed at first. Then, if I still don't take it I get weak, woozy, and short of breath.

I would get your blood checked. I was having similar problems (although I'm much older than you) got a blood panel done, and it turned out my iron was low. It could be anything -diet, hormones, medications -talk to your doctor.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

The neat thing about people over horses is that people-patients can talk!

To the OP - getting your vitamin levels checked is a good start. I just had a friend go through this and her Vitamin D was almost not on the scale :(
