If Santa Claus had brain fog, he might have problems with dates.
He might lose important stuff.
He might forget everyone’s names.
Brain fog might interfere with Santa’s innate sense of direction, forcing him to rely on technology.
He might get confused about the order of gift distribution.
With brain fog, you can make a list and check it twice, thrice, or two hundred times and still forget who is naughty and who is nice.
Brain fog can make you lose stuff, and it can also make you THINK you lost stuff.
Possible diagnoses of Santa’s brain fog:
1) Lyme disease?
Actually, I don’t know anything about reindeer, but puffins are hosts for a tick called Ixodes uriae that carries a European strain of Lyme, borrelia garinii. There was a study done in the Faroe Islands near the Arctic Circle. Puffins also live at the North Pole. Hmm.
2) Has Santa had full thyroid testing including Free T3, Reverse T3, and thyroid antibodies? Brain fog is a symptom of thyroid disease. Also, like many thyroid patients, Santa struggles to lose weight.
3) Does Santa have gut dysbiosis?
4) Santa’s job exposes him to lots of pollution and nasty toxic chemicals. Another reason for brain fog.
5) (Insert your diagnosis of Santa.) Well, I just listed several causes of brain fog, but I’m probably leaving some out because I have brain fog myself. Please feel free to add anything I’ve missed that could apply to Santa Claus. No medical qualifications needed to diagnose imaginary beings.
Happy Holidays, and I wish everyone many pain-free or at least low-symptom days.
