Another Side Effect Of Chemotherapy: ‘Chemo Brain’ - Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans showing the brain metabolism differences before and after chemotherapy.

Loss of words, trouble connecting your inside with outside, and the feeling of ‘trying to fight your way through fog’…happens in other situations, too (related or unrelated to the mechanisms involved in ‘Chemo Brain’).

Lack of sleep (including poor quality of sleep), constant irritation, extreme emotions, sedative drugs, alcohol…anything that interferes with your brain’s ability to concentrate and think clearly (chemo or no chemo).
