How Often Do Each Person Experience Brain Fog?

How Often Do Each Person Experience Brain Fog?

Lately, I realized I’m forgetting a bit more. It’s not noticeable but enough for me to question it. I don’t remember certain things I learned, at time I’m spaced out and once back I’m in panic mode. Is it due to the hiv, the anxiety and depression?
Currently on Biktarvy, Escitalopram and Amitriptyline

They're currently no clinical studies that I know of using the brain and HIV but I know that other organs like the heart are being looked at.A while back my cognitive therapist did share with me that a lot of HIV people with advanced HIV , as far as time is concerned ,...do experience some type of memory loss.... having said that my HIV doctor has said that the majority of his aging HIV clients all experience brain fog. I wish more can be studied on this subject... 💋💛💜🧡❤️💙💚🌈🙏😊🤪
