do you have bad anxiety symptoms?

severe anxiety symptoms can cause brain fog and forgetfulness

are you able to improve your diet and exercise? and eat more protein and fruits and vegetables and cut out carbohydrtes?

this can help decrease inflammation and your body and help you have more energy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
