Can chronic tension in neck, shoulders, and head cause brain fog and cold hands?

Can chronic tension in neck, shoulders, and head cause brain fog and cold hands?

Yes: Chronic tension in the neck, shoulders and head can cause "brain fog" or cognitive clouding because of increased distractibility due to the pain and tension.

On the other hand, many people who have symptoms that sound like thyroid, have no thyroid problem at all. The best thing is to see your doctor about these symptoms, get thyroid blood tests: tsh, free t4. ...Read more

Unrelated: It would be unlikely to become allergic to Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) after having taken it regularly for 6 months. Try some antihistamine to see if it controls your hives. If the hives persist >8 weeks, consult an allergist. I am more concerned about your cold hands and feet (if newly developed) plus mouth ulcers. If these are persistent issues, see a rheumatologist as well. ...Read more
