might give it a go too as I eat a lot of fruit and veg each day, would be difficult to know what else to eat though
I have had the same thing for a long time, and recently have found great relief in the low-FODMAPS diet. You can find plenty of info on the internet about it. The theory goes that there is some kind of sugar or saccharide you can't digest, and so some other microbe is in your gut digesting it for you, causing bad gas that goes back into bloodstream, poisoning you and causing the brain fog. When I eliminated fructose, fructans (wheat and onions are the biggest offenders), and lactose, I had a 99% improvement in symptoms (90% in the first two weeks and then a gradual improvement over the next few weeks).
