Concussion level 3

Common Questions and Answers about Concussion level 3


Also, 10+ years later my one pupil is always slightly dialated more than the other. I was just curious what level of concussion did I have or how bad was the head injury? I don't have problems now, but I guess I'm more curious than anything.
I received a concussion on April 7th, and at first I seemed okay, my main complaint was the broken ribs and the pain that came along with them. After about a week and a half, the left side of my face became numb. The left side of my body was the impact side. My doctor ordered a CT Scan which showed a berry aneurysm, in light of this, my concussion became secondary.
My brain hit the front of my skull and back from the force of the vehicle comming to a instant stop. I have whip blash aswell. At the hospital the doctor said i had a level 4 severe concussion, that would go away after 10-14 days. But it didn't go anywhere.
Soldier has concussion, TBI from an RPG exploding near head. It has been over a year now and he still has extreme, daily migraines, accompanied by vomiting and sometimes dizziness. Also, chronic insomnia and a pineal cyst. VA simply giving him pain medications. Is there any hope for recovery from a concussion or is he doomed to a lifetime of pain? Quality of life is horrible.
All the problems that go with a concussion. Anyways I have been to 3 neurologists and the last one finally said post concussion, I finally had my 3 year headache diagnosed as a chronic paroxysmal hemicrania and am on meds for it. Now I have sleep problems, I sleep to much. At least 4 naps a day, uncontrollable need for sleep. I went to a sleep study and have not heard the results yet. My question is, could this really be post concussion syndrome? does it last 3 years?
By the third day I had all the symptoms of a concussion plus severe tremors that would last for 3 to 4 minutes, went to the emergency room, had a CT scan and it was normal. It took me 3 months to feel better. I resumed my spinning classes even though I had felt tired and not my usual self. 5 months later, while I was talking a walk at the waterfront, and while sitting down on a high backed bench the back of my head lightly hit the back of the bench.
Prednisone in one large dose (60mg) made a positive difference but caused a nasty reaction. In a much smaller dose (20mg x 3, then 10mg x 3) it hasn't seemed to help. I no longer give her anything to help her sleep, she seems to be sleeping well on her own again. She is frustrated at being limited with her physical activity and I can only imagine the headache isn't helping her frustration level. I am at a loss for where to go from here.
I did lose consciosness for a moment. I had 3 staples put in my scalp, have a concussion, and weird enough half my left thigh is numb (from my knee to my hip) and my right leg is numb from the side of my knee to mid thigh.I still have pain in my head.I am concerned about my head, I keep getting dizzy when I turn my head. When I bend down and look down I have sharp pain in my head. I am extremely concerned about my head and thighs since before the accident they were fine. Should I worry?
After weeks of trial and error we settled on Maxalt, Topomax (now at 75mg BID), and Verapamil. I am now diagnosed with Post-concussion syndrom and currently in PT for Cervogenic Dizziness and while there has been no improvement in the HA, the dizziness is almost gone. :). HERE IS THE WEIRD PART--During this journey I was sent for IQ testing by my disability insurance.
Posted By Drew on December 06, 1998 at 20:51:54: My husband suffered a level 3 concussion playing hockey, 8 days ago. While his memory is back (except for 12 hours of that day) and he is feeling better. He still experiences dizziness and fatigue, which I understand is normal given the circumstances, however his left pupil frequently dilates throughout the day (but, does respond to light and is not fixed for the whole day).

We have been to our general practioner twice this week with our concerns with no answers.
I was on antibiotics for a while because he thought I had an infection but that did nothing. My doc also said to take 3 advil, 3 times a day. I did that for 5 days with little to no improvements so I stopped. Im just at a loss. I am always feeling off, and its affecting my life because I am so worried that something is truly wrong with me.
I suffered from yet another concussion in Oct 2012. When I flew to a lower altitude 3 weeks later I had no problems adjusting to the change in air pressure however upon returning to 5000 ft above sea level I could not function for days after. The same thing happened when I flew again 1 month later. I completely believe that a change in air pressure from flying and even every day weather changes affects me. Sunny high pressure days were the worst.
She has been at the vet for 3 days and not really improving. She keeps having seizures and is on an IV. Shes been given meds to calm the seizures and for any swelling n the brain. I'm afraid to bring her home but I can't afford the vet costs after tomorrow. I have no choice but to bring her home. I'm afraid she will starve or have a bad seizure at home. So I guess my question is. What can I do on my part to help her when she gets home? And how do I feed her since she can't eat on her own?
Kids made me stay up until they were assured I didn't have a concussion. Oh. I forgot how much it hurts to fall. Glad my bones are relatively strong. Only broken toes. I'm a mess as usual.
after a while the PVCs slwed to an acceptable level. I had an auto accident about 5 weeks before this happened and my head hit the steering wheel and I was unconcious for 2-3 minutes.I went to a Neuroologist after the ER room episode and complained about dizziness, high anxiety and unbalanced walking. He says the concussion caused it. I am now on low dose Klonopin to control my high anxiety.
My son is almost 3 months old now and this morning he wiggled his way up and hit his head on one of the crib railings. We do have a mesh bumper but in the corners there is one rail left uncovered due to the design. I'm worried that he may have hurt himself and should I take him to the hospital? He's been extremely fussy today he won't let me put him down and wants to sleep all the time.
I deal with optic nerve swelling and occasional headaches. About 3 weeks ago, I started having extreme pain in my eyeballs and sharp shooting pains on the left side of my head. These symptoms came on fast and lasted for two weeks, turning into having an extreme pressure feeling on the left side of my head and tingling in my arms/hands with some twitching in my face for over a week now. I had a CT scan w/ and w/o contrast which were normal.
I was in a recent cycling accident and broke several bones, received a major concussion, and was knocked out unconscious for a few minutes - lucky to be a live actually. It was a very serious and traumatic experience that I'm finding out. It's been 3 weeks and I'm no longer on the narcotics. I've had very difficulty sleeping over the last few days (10 hrs in the last three nights). I experience restlessness like no other and feel like I just want to jump out of my skin.
Similar to the previous exam, there are several nodes in the bilateral neck which are unchanged in size. These include bilateral level 2 and 3 nodes, left supraclavicular and level 4, bilateral submandibular nodes, and right posterior cervical nodes. The largest nodes are the bilateral level 2 nodes in the long axis dimensions as well as left level 4 and supraclavicular nodes which have short axis dimensions on the order of up to 10-11mm.
I had a wreck 2 years ago that broke my arm in 27 places and also gave me a severe concussion. I was in the hospital for 7 days because of the concussion and the shock. 3 weeks after I got out I started experiencing anxiety attacks. I always thought I was dying, having a stroke, heartattack, zoned, tunnel vision... They were bad enough to last about 4 hours and then I would sleep for the next 15 hours easily.
I'm 17. I'll say it right out, I masturbate. My problem is that 3 days ago, my neck, about level with the jawline if you take your fingers and follow the invisible line from the jawbone to the spine, from that line to the crown of my head, and all the way inward to about 3" from my eyes, becomes the biggest site of pain I've ever experienced before in my life. And the headache lasts roughly four hours. The pain is excruciating, like a concussion.
10 months ago I was involved in an MVA during which I recieved a severe concussion and was told i had neck and back strain due to whiplash. My head hit my shoulder so hard my ear swelled. My initial symptoms where pain in lower and upper back. Extreme sharp pain with cervical flexion , extension, and rotation. I also had slight but not complete numbness in my thumb, pointer and middle finger. 3 months later my doctor finally sent me for an mri. The report showed as follows.
It resulted in a major concussion where I didnt remember anything for 15 min not even my name.  My memory returned to normal and nobody could ever find the cause. I found out I have factor 5 lieden and protein s def. which means my blood clots easier.  so about 2 months after, I began getting so tired I could not drive TO work even after 12 hours of sleep. Tried everything to see if it would help for 2 months. Nothing so I saw a dr.
In 2002, I had a head injury that resulted in a concussion. It happened because I was out in the wind, standing in my car door, and my car door slammed shut into the left side of my head at the temple, and then my head "bounced" from the door's impact and hit the frame of my car right at the right temple. For three months, I could hardly stay awake, had memory problems, vision problems, depression, coordination issues, etc.
I had laser surgery 2 days ago to correct a small tear in my retina of my right eye. The retina specialist gave me what I believe to be the numbing drops no more than 2-3 minutes before he started the procedure. During the procedure I could feel very uncomfortable stinging in the back of my eye along with the pressure from him holding the lense in my eyey. I was also seeing very bright Red, White and I belive Green lights when he used the laser.
I am pretty sure what the dr is saying that 08/11 and 08/15 are NOT likely because serum HCG would have been positive on 09/10, but was NOT positive until 09/17 and level was only 90. I have no idea when I ovulate, and have never kept track of my periods.
First of all, I'm an extremely anxiety, OCD, pure o hypochondriac, materialistic, depressed introvert ridden mess inside even though I appear 'normal' outside so any logical advice is deeply appreciated because it helps me set my mind to rest. I'm 17, male and ever since I received a mid ranged level concussion in January 2013 (hit in the temple by football/soccer ball), my fear of hitting my head, receiving concussions and what not has tripled in severity.
A few hours later I started experiencing sharp sudden debilitating pain in one spot above my ear on the left side of my head. It has happened about 14 times and it is terrible. Also, about 3 months ago i had a mild concussion. I hope this is enough info. I feel like I should go to the doctor but I am not sure which...walk in clinic or hospital.
