Due to the incident occuring at work i am being seen daily by a different Dr. I have been given confilicting information, and am very confussed about what i should be experiencing!
About four nights ago whilewe were sound asleep my cat decided it would be thE perfect time to Ty for the first time to jump onto out headboard from the nightstand. Out headboard is about three and a half to four feet higher than our heads while we sleep. We have this rectangular block that has candles in it ( made of wood) on our headboard which she knocked off and it fell right on our heads. It weighs about 4 lbs.
Hi, A possibility of Extra Dural Haemorrhage can’t be ruled out in the case of your son. EDH is a collection of blood which occurs below the skull but above the thick leathery cover of the brain itself known as the Dura. This area of the brain is basically fluid and is a shock absorber for the brain. However, there are veins that feed and drain the brain which move through this area and when they are torn an epidural bleed can occur.
I'm sorry to hear about your son's problems. His symptoms sound like they could be due to a number of things possibly related to the accident, but it's important for his doctors to know whether or not he had any head injury. If he lost consciousness briefly and was told he had a slight concussion, then he could have post-concussive syndrome characterized by headaches, nausea, neck discomfort, and dizziness among other symtpoms such as restlesness, nervouness, anxiety, and fatigue.
to the point I have been experience dizziness, a little bit of nausea, sensativity to sound and problems focusing for probably about 3 1/2 months could this be realated to what happen? Should i go to the doctor or wait it out.. I am kinda of tierd of feeling like this. It is not all the time I would say about 65%.
I had a CT scan done at the ER but was never told if I had suffered a concussion. I'm also waiting on the results of an EEG because I've never fainted or had a seizure before in my life. Now I'm experiencing frequent pressure like headaches mainly around my temples, eyes and sides of my head. I get dizzy and feel off balance if I move around too much. I get sharp headache pains from just reading.
I have begged him to go back to a doctor to get his concussion checked out but he refuses. Does it sound like he needs to seek medical help for the concussion considering he never received any after-care and continued to drink on the concussion? Its been about 10 months since this happened so it is likely that he could still be suffering from the after affects of the concussion? Thank you for your time.
My problem is that i cannot remember if i did or not. However, my head has been hurting and its very intense especially with sound and light. My nose is also bruised and is numb. I cannot remember the accident that clearly. Is it possible that i may have a concussion?
My doctor ordered a CT Scan which showed a berry aneurysm, in light of this, my concussion became secondary. I'm concerned because my balance is getting worse when I first get up from a sitting or laying position, I stumble a bit before I seem to get my feet working. I've noticed that this is occurring more often. Is this just a probable side effect from the concussion?
But he was with you at the very end, where he would have preferred to be I'm sure, right on your chest, and the last thing he heard was the comforting sound of your heartbeat. Don't blame yourself for bringing him home. After all, the vet did recommend that, and I'm sure he did not expect your little dog to die. Most likely he would have died anyway, only he did it at home, and not in a sterile lonely little cage in the vet's.
Hi, I'm a 21 year old university student who experiences occasional anxiety related to thinking I have a concussion. I did in fact experience a concussion in my first year of university that initially was easy to deal with but which I made worse after walking up some stairs to get to class. I experienced a period (2-3 months) of relatively severe anxiety related to making my concussion worse. However, looking back, I'm not sure when my concussion symptoms ended and my anxiety symptoms took over.
My mother suffered a concussion about 4 weeks ago and she still gets a terrible high pithced ringing in her ears sometimes lasting up to 24 hours. She has been to a neurologist and ENT, but they have not been able to tell her anything. They prescribed xanax and while it helps dull the noise, it does not do much else. Has anyone suffered this before? Should my mother expect this to last forever, or is this a common problem post concussion? Please help. I am very worried about her. Thanks.
My 12 old daughter suffered a concussion at school, which te school never reported and my daughter ad no memory of it was un-noticed for six months, now she can't remember anything not even basic math. She complaines of sever headaches that never go away. She was an A student and an artist among other things now she can barely understand what I say. She never laugh like she did, there are times when it seems like she as regressed, she may sound like she is about 4 years old.
I had two concussions in my late teens, one with memory loss of several hours after the blow (knocked on my head playing basketall), the second with loss of memory of the accident (I was a pedestrian hit by a car). I'm not sure if I was unconscious in either case.
I had a severe concussion and was out of sports for a whole year in high school because I had persistent symptoms like dizziness and headaches. You may be at risk for something like an aneurysm, clot, hemorrhage so play it safe and go to your Dr.
Hello! A few days ago i received a concussion from hitting the back of my head on the bottom of a pool (filled with water thank goodness). I went to my doctor the next day and she told me that a headache and a little bit of dizziness would be normal for a couple weeks. Anyways my question is this. I've had a non-stop bad headache for 6 days now, extremely bad dizzy spells, i have to wear sunglasses inside becuase light makes my headache increase.
Although it probably was a concussion, the fact that your puppy got noticeably better that quickly is a good sign. It was good as well that you stayed for a long period afterwords to make sure he was alright. You speak of the breeder like they are very experienced with breeding, which is a good thing!!
My concern is if there other problems within the brain, or does this sound consistent with a person that never showed the traditional signs of a concussion. Your input is greatly appreciated!

Sheryl ========================================================================= Thanks for the question Sherly. Sorry to hear about your problem. Patients do not need to be knocked unconscious to have a concussion. I'm glad that the CT scan was normal which is usually the case.
Loss of consciousness isn’t required for a diagnosis of concussion or post concussion syndrome. Post concussion syndrome occurs within first 7 to 10 days and until 3 months. Symptoms are variable including dizziness, fatigue, irritability, anxiety, insomnia, loss of concentration and memory, light and noise sensitivity, headache varying from a tension type to cluster headaches. You need to consult a neurologist immediately.
Son took an RPG concussion to his head a year ago in Afghanistan and has had daily headaches since. Has tried Topamax, Sumitriptan, Maxalt, Botox and Naproxen but nothing touches them. About 3 times a week, the headaches become so bad that he vomits violently and the pain is unbearable. He is seeing neurologist but nothing is improving. He does have a pineal cyst but they don't think that accounts for headaches. Right now, his life seems not worth living.
Possibilities that may need to be considered include neuro-muscular issues such as neuropathies/ myopathies, micronutrient deficiencies, electrolyte imbalance, heavy metal poisoning, internal ear related issues, infections, inflammations, stress/ anxiety, medication side effect etc. With some of the tests being normal a few of the possibilities are ruled out while others may need to be evaluated for.
Hi! It is very difficult to say whether you have suffered any internal injury or not. Sometimes symptoms develop late. Therefore it is important to get a doctor to examine you if you have suffered a head injury. However, having said that, as of now, you do not seem to be having any alarming symptoms. If you develop nausea, vomiting, excess sleep, severe headache, difficulty in walking and balance, tremors, seizures, vision problems, ringing in ears etc then consult a doctor immediately.
It just seemed so out of nowhere and out of the norm for me. The symptoms haven't worsened; they just haven't lessened yet either.
Post-concussion syndrome is characterized by a variety of neurologic and non-neurologic symptoms including fatigue, memory problems, and so-called dizziness (whether light-headedness or vertigo). Symptoms can last several weeks to months but typically improve over time.
We have been trying various doctors and asking Neurologist if they are familiar with the syncope and most of the time they are not when it is with a concussion. They do not rule it out, but she has been tested for seizures, epilepsy and all EEg's come out normal. Currently they are considering an overnight EED. We have been told you can have post concussion seizures, migraines and at this time they believe it is "Vestibular disorder" and "Basilar" migraines.
What you describe sure does sound like a concussion. And consequently one shot of steroid to slow brain swelling will not be enough. Although the right thing at the time, this dog needs to be on steroids for several days to relieve the immediate swelling in the brain and spinal cord. There are probably other injuries that need to be discovered and treated after such a trauma. x-rays will be needed and anything found should be treated accordingly. She may also need pain relief medications.
About 5 yrs ago I lost my balance and fell off a ladder working on my home. I suffered a slight concussion, no broken bones or anything, recovered fairly quickly. About 6 mos. later I had a severe attack of vertigo. No headache, so dizzy that just moving my body lightly caused me to vomit. Lasted about 4 days, went away completely. Aprox. 6 mos. later same thing happened again, just as severe. Went to the doctor, thought it was sinus infect. or something. Got med. , It went away.
