No symptoms expet for a mild he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che(2/10). My question is since my first head injury was not considered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussion</span>, <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'>does</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> today's injury act cumulative towards any brain symptomatolgy? In other words, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> the two incidents put together make my brain more vulnerable in the near future if I get hit on the head again.

I've developed a stiff neck too.
Hi! as you have yourself identified, lack of sleep and anxiety could be the cause of your persisting symptoms. I suggest you take up an exercise you like such as walking, cycling, swimming etc. Do deep breathing exercises. If anxiety persists then consult a doctor.

I did also break my nose, which was realigned under local anaesthetic 6 days ago. No LOC. No actual vomiting.

My 16 year old son was in a car wreck 5 1/2 days ago where he suffered a grade 2 moderate concussion. He was knocked unconscious for a short period of time &amp; received a scalp laceration to the right side of his head . The CT scan discovered what the neurosurgeon described as a small thread size bleed. Later that day another CT scan was done &amp; all signs of bleeding were gone &amp; the blood had been absorbed. His stay in the hospital was for 3 days.
all the problems that go with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussion</span>. anyways I have been to 3 neurologists and the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st one finally said post <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussion</span>, 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? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> it last 3 years?
You could use acetaminophen for he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che, eat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> light diet, light activity around the house, avoid alcohol etc. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>concussion</span> with brain damage needs hospital care. Full recovery is expected in an uncomplicated concussion. The symptoms may continue to occur weeks to months later. Take care.
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che everyday for the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st 2 1/2 years. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> cat scan done, and everything was normal. I have been on topamax, and I had to go off as it made my feet and hands tingle. I also did chiroprator therapy, massage therapy, accupuncture, and now an doing a hyper-baric chamber thereapy. Nothing seems to help, and I am at the end of my ropes. It is really effecting my quality of life. It holds me back from thinks I want to do.
In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURaTION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>er.
On the top right middle side of my head I have had a sharp/ stabbing/ throbbing/ pressure/ pain that comes and goes for the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st two weeks. the pain l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st only from less than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> minute to maybe 5 minutes at a time. It only occurs during the day. when I lay down the pain seems to go away. So I am able to sleep well at night. I have tried to take Tylenol and aleve for this pain none helped it. I already take 400 mg of topmax a day for seizures and migraines.
5 weeks ago, on Sunday March 15, I was feeling pretty horrible and had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che, but it didn't feel much like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> migraine. I laid down to take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> nap at about 4PM, and when I wake up, it's well after 10PM and I'm in bed with my boyfriend extremely worried. I had apparently gotten up and passed out, completely cold, in the hallway. I had no recollection of even waking up.
For the l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st 4 weeks I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che that is very different from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> sinus he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> migraine. and the ear ringing is so distracting. They have tried a shot of tribadol, relpax for migraines, mucinex for fluid behind the ears, sudafed, and most recently antibiotics for possible virus. They just did an MRI and are sending me to a Neurologist. I am so frustrated and confused about who to even see for this. I am going to try the yoga exercises and hope to share some good news.

Thanks for the prompt and informative reply. I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> brain MRI l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st Dec. which was normal, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> cervical MRI which san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ed osteoarthritis at C5, C6 with slight spur formation. The report said no signs of radiculopathy or myelopathy. Neurologist said that this would not cause the types of symptoms I was having. Because of back pain and resulting muscle stiffness, physiatrist recommended physical therapy which I did for 8 weeks and am still doing recommended exercises.
Hi everyone I was injured slightly in a RTa car accident or so I thought at the time !
My vertigo comes only from my right ear, so I try to lay on my left side when I sleep or lay on the couch, maybe that's where I get the stiff neck from, but it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> prevent the attacks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> bit! I still get an attack about 5 times per year but they won't l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st as <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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> anymore since I've been doing the Epley in conjunction with the antihistamin. So instead of being sick for weeks it might take 2 to 5 days.
Today is the 2nd day from that exam which makes this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> total of 8 days with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> mild he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che always on the right side of my head and sometimes jumps to the other side. Question is, am I just going nuts fearing the worse for no reason, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan> will this take to pass over? I would like to go back to the gym for cardio but I don't want to put any pressure on my head if it will make matters worse. There is still a bit of pain on my cheek if I press on it..
It's supposed to control seizures and anxiety. I took Dramamine once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> <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'>long</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> time ago for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> migraine, and it worked really well. I don't know what gave me the idea, or why I haven't tried it since then, but I am contemplating getting some. My mother used to use them a lot. I never knew why. I just thought they were her "mother's little helper." I have been getting migraines since before I had ever heard the term "migraine.
I didn't have them. My first symptom was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> non-stop he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che for months on end. One can have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> flaming, raging case of Lyme disease and test negative on aNY test in both blood and spinal fluid. Please read the following and if your symptoms continue, you may want to revisit the issue.

Every time I ran I would get this thudding pounding feeling in my head, would feel really spaced out and the this would be followed by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span> he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>che. If I had known at that point that I had Chiari I never would have pushed myself the way I did. I'm not saying that post op you can't run, I know many that do an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan>ever I am not one of them b/c my gait is still affected. My advice would be to hold off on anything that may cause worsening symptoms until you get a good idea of your situation.
