Concussion numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Concussion numbness


Avatar m tn I ran into someone helmet to helmet, and had total body numbness for about 3-5 seconds until I started to feel normal again. The only symptoms I have now are fatigue and a minor headache.
Avatar m tn almost like flu symptoms. went to ER 24 hours later and had CT and all tests were100% normal and left with concussion diagnosis. never lost conscience. have complete recollection of all events before and after. never had a headache, never vomited, never really dizzy except for lightheadedness associated with sluggishness. literally no problems other than lethargy, which is somewhat depression linked.... on Monday I awoke with what I think is ulnar entrapment.
Avatar n tn I have swelling and tenderness around my left eye and temple but my concern is I am having numbness in my right hand. Could this be related to a mild concussion I may have had?
Avatar n tn Athough aneurysms can be caused by trauma, I would think thank you have probably had yours prior to the concussion. The numbness and balance issues are likely due to the concussion. The MRI might also help identify if the trauma has completely resolved. It might identify if there is some inner ear damage. I might some time for all the symptoms of your concussion to resolved. The time is individual and alot depends on how bad the concussion.
Avatar n tn I was knocked out for a short time, maybe a minute. I went to the hospital afterward and got looked at to see if I might have a concussion or a broken jaw. The doctor spent maybe five minutes with me, max. Said I was fine and to go put some ice on it. I have the usual stuff you would expect from getting punched in the face, such as a sore jaw, fat lip and black eye. However I have some numbness in my teeth, the facial tissue outside my teeth(upper lip and surrounding area) and part of my cheek.
Avatar f tn I had concussion 4 months ago ..seemed to be getting better after 1 month & I was back at work for one month, where dizziness came back & then turned to permanent & bunch of other symptoms (hearing/vision/smell/taste/hand numbness/fatigue/word finding problems/etc) began. I am wondering if returning to work was too early & if this caused the additional symptoms to appear 6 weeks after the injury ... when on week 4 I seemed to be doing so well (1st 3 weeks I was off work).
Avatar n tn I also had some numbness of Lt leg and weakness of Rt. hand for few hours that spontaneously resolved. After 28 hours, I was completely symptom free. Due to insurance issues and also since at that time I did not feel that my injury was serious, I did not get a formal evaluation or a CT scan done. However today ( after 48hours of injury) when I was driving my car, I had stopped at a stop light. When I accelerated my car(from stop), due to inertia my head went rapidly forward and back.
Avatar n tn Any redness or swelling in the area of the twitching? If there are no neurologic deficits like weakness , numbness, any learning disabilities and memory problems, I believe your daughter may start playing again.The headaches were gone except for the eye twitching. But this twitching does not seem to affect her daily activities. Is she still on medications? Discuss this with your daughter's physician.He is the best person to guide you with this.
Avatar f tn My injury consisted of a head/brain injury that resulted in Post Concussive Syndrome. I am still suffering from tingling and numbness to the left side of my body. The left side of my face is numb, my left arm feels very heavy but the main probem is my left leg and foot - it tingles and feels very cold all the time. My balance is off and I stumble constantly when walking.
Avatar f tn My 17 y.o. Daughter suffered a concussion 8 weeks ago. Due to persistent symptoms, an mri was done. She has chiari 1 of 11mm, minimal CSF flow, and no syrinx at that time. She has tried naprosyn, propranolol, amitriptyline, prednisone, Frova, and now topamax. None have worked. She currently has constant headache at the back of her head and neck, head pressure, numbness and tingling in her arms to name a few symptoms. Any thoughts/experience with this situation?

Avatar m tn I got a concussion about a month ago during a dance performance and, while I no longer feel like there is a veil over my world, I am now experiencing headaches that feel like sinus headaches running from the base of my skull up over the right side of my head and down into my right eye/nose. Just 30 minutes ago, I felt the back of my neck burning, smelled the aroma of rubbing alcohol intensely in my nostrils and felt like I might throw up or pass out.
Avatar n tn I have been sleeping well besides being anxious about the possibility of a concussion. This morning I feel as if my upper cheek/right below my eye area is falling asleep/going numb. There's sensation to it when I touch it, but it feels a little tingly. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Avatar n tn She then attempted to vomit unsuccesfully many times before fading in and out of concsiousness. Is that concussion or is it more serious?? she went to hospital i dont really know her but i want to know if she is ok!
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I am confused about neuropathy. Basically MS has been ruled out, but I have numbness and tingling, buzzing, etc. Lower legs and other parts of my back, buttocks, etc. Muscled cramps and spasicity in lower legs. Have lost all reflexes that were normal before. Paraneoplastic syndrome, diabetes, you name it has been ruled out. Is it possible to have neuropathy without the burning and pain and just have numbness and tingling?
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with post concussion syndrome over a year ago. The medicines I'm taking are not helping. I take topamax, nortriptyline, and tordol. I was wondering if there is another condition that had similar symptoms to post concussion syndrome. I have all of the most common symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, migrains, mood swings, difficulty concentrating and remembering, but I also loss blocks of time, I pass out, and often experience some numbness on one side of my body.
Avatar f tn I have a 9 y/o daughter that has had symptoms of headache, dizziness, nausea, aching for a couple years. PCP did work ups & never really found anything. Well 4 weeks ago she had a bad fall down hardwood stairs & hit the back of her head off 7 steps. Diagnosed w/ a concussion. 4 weeks later all previous symptoms worse, headache nonstop of varying degrees, dizziness, nausea & tingling in legs which is new. MRI turned up Chiari Malformation Type 1 of 7 mm.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that someone with Aspergers would have a longer and more difficult experience to recover from a head injury (post traumatic concussion /headache) ? ( An unleashed dog unexpectedly ran into me and caused me to fall backwards, and the back of my head hit and bounced off of the ground. I did not lose consciousness. However, about 30minutes later I began to feel a headache develop. The headache stengthen over next few hours.
Avatar m tn I have numbness in little finger and ring finger of my left hand along with weakness 2 weeks post concussion. Should I seek immediate medical attention or might this simply be a pinched nerve?
Avatar m tn I have developed long lasting headaches which tend to be pulsating with a sharp pain and a strange numbness all over the brain (and sometimes this numbness travels throughout the body) that is difficult to explain - I would compare the sensation to that of ones foot going to sleep after sitting in an awkward position.
Avatar m tn Does anyone have any experience with this? I did not see a doctor as I had no concussion symptons, no bleeding and the pain at the time was minimal. If anyone has any imput on my situation it would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to know how long something like this takes to heal and regain feeling.
Avatar m tn I seemed to suffer brief kind of memory loss combined with headache and numbness in 1 hand and around my lips. I was bouncing on a trampoline, all was going well and i was quite impressed that i seemed to be able to go for ages without getting puffed out compared to normal. The first thing i noticed was when me and my friend stopped for a rest and i tried to ask him about a job that he had just applied for, but i went completely blank and could not for the life of me remember what the job was.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Aside from the headache and numbness, are there other symptoms present? If there was no history of head trauma, this could be due to primary headaches such as migraine headache. Migraines usually present with one-sided throbbing headaches associated with nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light and sound. Rest, avoidance of triggers and pain medications prescribed by your doctor may help provide relief. A headache journal will help identify the triggers that you could avoid.
Avatar n tn I hit my head hard a couple of days ago and I am sure I suffered a concussion as I got very light headed, almost passed out, felt sick and very dizzy. I layed down for about 30 minutes. We were leaving for vacation that day so I needed to get things done so I did not go to the doctor. It is now three days later and I still have bad headaches and symptoms that come and go such as dizziness, light headedness and tonight my face is numb.
Avatar f tn They made an incision of approx 2 inches long vertical in my lower back. I orginally had right side back pain and numbness in my leg and foot. After the surgery I still have numbness in my foot which they said would take a while to go away but i dont have the same back pain any longer. Just the pain from the surgery. After they brought me back from surgery I had to use the bathroom, when I got up I lost all control of my bladder and so urinated on the floor.
