Now nine months later i am considering going to a neureoiligist as it is affecting my college life and my work. The type of headache changes from week to week. Cureently my eyes feel very weak and everytime i open them they water - it feels as if there is something in the middle of both my eyes and hence they want to water - a specialist recommended i take FLAX but it didnt help.
until a couple of hours later that afternoon. Once that started it took almost a week an a half for the pressure to finally subside and I could go back to normal activity. I vouched I would never do that again....trying to sleep lying my head down on my pillow at night and that pressure building and building. I thought my head was going to explode, it was awful. However in July 2012, I was jumping into a swimming pool to catch a football and just happened to land sideways in the water.
Yes, his symptoms are exactly what to expect after a concussion, that is, not being able to sleep, headaches, trouble with memory, and depression. Normally your son should feel worlds better about a week after the incident, which is why the docs gave you the 72-hour time frame. Generally if this continues as far as two or three weeks out, then he should visit a neuropsychiatrist or a sports injury group who will treat him for post concussion syndrome.
The symptoms of post-concussion syndrome often improve after the affected person learns that there is a cause for the symptoms. Indeed, education about the disorder can ease a person's fears and help provide peace of mind. It also helps to have a a strong support system. Take care and keep us posted.
Thank you very much for your suggestions. You and your sister suffereing for very long time and definetely brave. I live in Washington D.C. area and I did tried neurofeedback.

Thank you for responding to my question with the new development of double blurred vision It has happened again 3 days later & this time lasted for approximately 5 hours. I had my optometrist check it out & optic nerves etc. look good. She referred me to an ophthalmologist...the appointment is weeks away.

My 7 yo kid had a concussion in Feb and immediately had fuzzy vision. About 5 weeks later, they began complaining of monocular diplopia in both eyes. About 5 weeks after that, they now can not even see the 'E' at the top of the eye chart. The vision improves using +1.00 reading glasses. However, prior to the concussion there were no vision issues. With the investigation there is a heterotopia in the occipital lobe.
I don't think I should be tired as I have been having at least 7-8 hours sleep all week. Anyway do I have a concussion and should I go to the doctor get checked, I really dislike going and I only go when I have to...
I am so sorry to hear about your accident and I do hope you recover from your symptoms soon. The symptoms associated with a post-concussion syndrome (PCS) can last from a few weeks to several months, and is dependent on the severity of the concussion. Have your symptoms worsened during the last 8 days? The symptoms you mentioned do indeed fall under the known symptoms associated with PCS.
She starting passing out 5 days later. She passes about 5 days a week with no warning or symptoms beforehand. She also has lots of nausea, dizzyness, fatigue, headaches, loss of appetite, and sometimes shaky hands. We have had multiple MRI's, MRA, CT scans, full cardio work ups several times including tilt table tests, heart monitor, stress test, ultra sounds of kidneys, bladder and ovaries, blood work. All coming back normal.
The vet coulndn't find anything wrong with him and Boof made a full recovery and released overnight. Two days later he had the same symptoms. I consulted a different vet a he suggested Boof had a concussion and to give him Vitamin C +bioflavonoids. I've been giving him this for the last few days annd he seemed to be coming good. Yesterday he was back to normal but we've woken up today and he is down again. Is there anything i can do for him?
) My physiotherapist was convinced that I have post concussion syndrome so I went to see a neurologist, but he said that it can’t be PCS because the symptoms didn’t occur until 6 weeks later. He told me I have chronic migraines (my symptoms have lasted about a month straight now) and told me to avoid some common triggers and see if it gets better. He also told me that it’s okay for me to exercise, but my physiotherapist says not to do anything but rest.
Hello, Time is the ally in concussion treatment since most symptoms resolve within a week to 10 days.Still you should see a neurologist as early as possible so that your daughter gets timely treatment.
First I had pins and needles sensations widespread over my body and occasional muscle twitching and after a few weeks it went away. A few months later the sensations and muscle twitching came back with some other symptoms such as ears ringing, lower back pain, hamstring muscle cramps, some bladder incontinence, and a general shaky feeling. I visited a neurologist because of a concern that it might be MS or something else and had an MRI and general exam. The Dr.
Progressively it got worse and worse until today, one week later, it was a really bad pain and it lasted a while (a good hour) until I had enough and took paracetamol. Please help, I'm not sure, what could be going on?

Memory loss and distortion 3.brain fog 4.dreamyness 5.axity 6.sleepyness 7.

Hello, I was recently in a car accident. Received a concussion. About a month after this incident I had horrible sinus pain and is still going on 6 months later. About 3 months ago I had trouble breathing, air hunger, palpitations and about two months ago started to have really bad muscle aches. About a week ago I started having horrible lightheadedness to wear I can't go anywhere because I feel faint.
I would turn my head and when I turned it back is was as if my eyes didn't return to position fast enough. About a week later I was driving and all the leaves on the trees looked like alumimium foil with a green tint. Of course I went to the eye Dr. who examined me and told me it was a concussion caused by the accident. But it just didn't sit well with me. I went to my family Dr. who ordered a MRI of the head and neck and there it was.
A few days later, I started getting shoulder/arm/hand pain and numbness. I went to my PCP and was told I had a pinched nerve and that if the pain continued for more than a week, to go see a neurologist. I did see one who ordered a MRI and it was discovered that I had a bulge at the C6/7, consistant with a whiplash injury.
They are most commonly of a physical nature following the injury, but tend to become predominantly psychological later. The physical symptoms include headache; cognitive symptoms are difficulty concentrating; and emotional and behavioral include irritability. Signs and symptoms such as noise sensitivity, problems with concentration and memory, irritability, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and poor judgment may be called 'late symptoms' as they appear days or weeks after injury.
I know most of the MSologists (my nickname for the neurologists who specialize in MS) will be in Amsterdam later this week for the ECTRIMS convention. the world's largest MS convention. This is not a good week to need our specialists! :-) If you want to learn more about ECTRIMS, you can go to their website, http://www.ectrims.eu/conferences.htm As for me, it will be a quiet week, with no medical appts. and nothing else exciting on the calendar. How about you?
Hi, I also have head injury and lot of symptoms like your daughter. It may be Post Concussion Syndrome. I am disability and docs (PCP, Neurologists) don't have much idea about it. it is just wait and see right now hoping things get better. every day different symptoms repeat.
Today marks 1 week off opiates for me, hopefully for good this time!! I'm only 20 years old and really need to get on with my life, these should be the funnest years of my life while in college. Not struggling with addiction and other problems. Any advice and support would be greatly appreciated, and I'd like to keep updating this post daily with my progress!! I was up to about 150mg a day of mostly oxycontin this past fall/winter, but also hydrocodone, dilaudid, opana, whatever.
ive been to the doctor numerous times, and they dont know what is going on, ive been on effexor 75 mg for about a month now, and just a couple days ago, the doctor said to just completly stop taking the effexor. so my question is, when my symptoms started a week ago, is it side effects from the effexor, and now im feeling withdrawls from it. i dont know what is going on, i feel horrible, i have for a week. im just wondering if anyone knows what might be going on because my doctors dont know????
Sometimes I wish I had taken him up on the offer to do it that same week would have been last week, then I wouldn't have to think about it. On the other hand as time slowly passes I can see that I have made the right decision. When I was diagnosed at the beginning of Dec, just over a month ago, I didn't think my symptoms interfered with my life, but I am starting to realize they do.
About 3/12 weeks ago my right foot went totally numb which had happened once before, some pain in my left foot and then severe pain in lumbar area down both buttocks and legs, bad muscle spasms also. Later that night and i believe mostly started the next morning I had such extreme weakness in my legs I couldnt stand for more than 5 mintues. I was extremely frightened as it was the weekend. and I didnt want to go the ER. I went to my chiro monday who said I think you need to be hospitized.
