Brief Answer:
Consider checking your blood pressure

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
I am Dr Mody and I would be addressing your concern.

Considering your age of 55 years , the most common reason for the fogginess and dis orientation is new onset hypertension.
So get your blood pressure checked . preferably do a ambulatory 24 hour blood pressure monitoring as it will give us an idea about your blood pressure during sleep .
If the above is normal.
Get your eyes checked , if you have problem reading a book ( impaired near vision ) .
Lastly if the blood pressure is in normal range considering taking electrolyte along with water to keep good hydration.

Hoping i could help .
Regards Dr Priyank Mody

Dear Dr. Langsjoen: A friend is a past heart attach victim, and has congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. He also needs to lose a lot of weight. His cardiologist has him on maximum strength blood pressure medicine as well as a statin, and he is miserable. He is now taking CoQ10 at my suggestion. I have recommended he stop taking the statin and find another way to lower any imflammation (his doctor has never tested his CRP levels). Are there effective ways to reduce blood pressure in a situation like this without the blood pressure drugs? Are there any other therapies which can improve his status?
