What Does Brain Fog Feel Like?
Brain fog is a really common concussion symptom, but one that is difficult to describe because the experience changes from one person to the next. However, here are some ways that people with brain fog typically describe the experience:
- “It feels like everything is hazy”
- “I feel like my thinking is slower than normal”
- “It feels like I’m running in sand”
- “Everything feels slowed down”
- “My thoughts are fuzzy”
Brain fog happens because your brain doesn’t function as efficiently as it normally does after getting a concussion. Your brain feels slower because it really is slower and the same amount of workload that you would do normally seems much more draining.

Our team of concussion specialists share some tips for helping get rid of that brain fog feeling:
