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 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
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 concussion 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 later, I was mugged, beaten and have suffered a serious concussion, 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 & 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. 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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...
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Since this is a concussion injury which is a brain injury causes by a sudden blow to the head or to the body. Symptoms of a concussion include memory loss, headaches or blurry vision, nausea, inability to stand or walk or having coordination and balance problems. 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn I am set to take an MRI in a week. I have not seen a neurologist. I had a concussion 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.
19712445 tn?1483083221 About a week ago I hit my head pretty hard in my four head area 12 hours later I went to the ER because of head pain. They did a CT scan and told me everything was OK. Two days later I was still having hip pain but I was also feeling dizzy lightheaded and fatigue along with other random symptoms. So I went to the ER again all they did was look over my last CT scan and told me I was OK and sent me home.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn ) 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I went to a concussion specialist who performed an impact test on me and diagnosed me with a concussion. A couple weeks later I got cleared but soon after I started experiencing severe sensitivity to light and my vision seemed to worsen. I had been given glasses to use while driving for distance and now I have to wear them all the time or I can’t see.
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 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.
Avatar n tn 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?

937759 tn?1245007545 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.
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 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
