Avatar m tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span>. 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.
Avatar m tn until a couple of hours l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter that afternoon. Once that started it took almost a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> 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.
Avatar f tn Yes, his an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptomsan> are exactly what to expect after a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan>, 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan> syndrome.
Avatar m tn The reason why I'm writing these now is because I'm, of course, panicky because of the possibility of a mild <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>concussion</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> and its possible side effects, along with th ehelp of alcohol and poor sleep the first days of the injury -while I should be taking care to rest and all. I feel just a weight sensation and mild pain that comes and goes around the vicinity of the impact, maybe a bit of pain on the opposite side sometimes, but I don't even need acetaminophen.
Avatar m tn 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. I The psychologist who treated is very well known to treat TBI patients and she is very good understanding my issues too. I was able to go for around 15 sessions. It did help somewhat may be to bring down my anxiety. My main issue is persistent dizziness, feeling heavy headed (not headache) and fatigue.
Avatar n tn so I was on respreator for 2 months, and then it took me 1 year to learn to reuse all my muscles. But, I never had the bottom of my feet stop hurting, burning feeling Now 32yrs l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter, I was mugged, beaten and have suffered a serious an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan>, my feet are hurting me more and the burning pain has gotten worst i read now that those that get GB have blood transfer, etc...........
Avatar n tn Thank you for responding to my question with the new development of double blurred vision It has happened again 3 days later &amp; this time lasted for approximately 5 hours. I had my optometrist check it out &amp; optic nerves etc. look good. She referred me to an ophthalmologist...the appointment is weeks away. I am still experiencing head pain, ears ringing, some occasional jaw pain, trouble sleeping and days when I just don't feel well.. ...going on one month now.

The vision improves using +1.00 reading glasses. However, prior to the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan> there were no vision issues. With the investigation there is a heterotopia in the occipital lobe.

There is an entity of post concussive syndrome where there is inability to think and headaches, changes in sleep patterns and personality etc. This needs to be evaluated clinically, CT/MRI scan brain needs to be done to rule out.

She passes about 5 days a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> with no warning or <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>symptoms</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 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.
Avatar m tn I am set to take an MRI in a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span>. I have not seen a neurologist. I had a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>concussion</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 16 days ago. I fell and hit my forehead in the area over my left eyebrow, but I did not lose consciousness. The place I hit my head started feeling tender/burning/sharp pain straight after the hit. 16 days later it still feels the exact same way. The next day I started getting a headache in the back of my head on the opposite side I was hit. The day after that I got tension headaches all over my head.
Avatar n tn The vet coulndn't find anything wrong with him and Boof made a full recovery and released overnight. Two days l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter he had the same <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>symptoms</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. I consulted a different vet a he suggested Boof had a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan> 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?
Avatar f tn ) My physiotherapist was convinced that I have post an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan> syndrome so I went to see a neurologist, but he said that it can’t be PCS because the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>symptoms</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> didn’t occur until 6 weeks l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter. He told me I have chronic migraines (my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>symptoms</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 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.
Avatar n tn 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 l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter the sensations and muscle twitching came back with some other <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>symptoms</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> such as ears ringing, lower back pain, hamstring muscle cramps, some bladder incontinence, and a general shaky feeling.

Avatar n tn Progressively it got worse and worse until today, one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter, it was a really bad pain and it lasted a while (a good hour) until I had enough and took paracetamol.

937759 tn?1245007545 Hello, I was recently in a car accident. Received a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>concussion</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. 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.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussionan> 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.
Avatar n tn a few days l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter, 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.

572651 tn?1333939396 I know most of the MSologists (my nickname for the neurologists who specialize in MS) will be in amsterdam l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ter this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>week</span> for the ECTRIMS convention. the world's largest MS convention.
