DO YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS FROM A HEAD INJURY?
PLEASE CONTINUE READING TO SEE IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR TO YOU.
Have you ever been in a car accident or hit your head while playing a sport? Maybe you had an injury to your head years ago but you don’t think it is related to your current symptoms of ringing in the ears, headaches, mood changes, depression, fatigue, vertigo, dizziness, brain fog or memory loss. Do you find you can’t remember people names or what you had for dinner last night? Were you told that since you did not “black out” you did not have a concussion? Have you been to other doctors who tell you they can’t find anything wrong with you…even though you don’t feel like yourself anymore? Maybe you have noticed a tough time with relationships in life for example, less patience with your spouse or kids. Or you have less excitement to keep up with other relationships outside your family life? Do simple tasks seem not so simple anymore? Are you thinking right now, “I hit my head so long ago that can’t be the reason why I am feeling this way now”?
Did your child have a head injury and now they have headaches, mood changes, sensitivity to bright lights and loud sounds? Do you think that with time the symptoms will go away? Do you think their personality changes are just a growing phase? Maybe your child has been missing class due to a concussion and getting behind in their school work. Maybe you are concerned about their future life after their concussion.
These symptoms can appear immediately and last for a few days to weeks. In more serious cases months. The bigger deal is not always the immediate symptoms but the symptoms that can show up much later in life. This is due to underlying neurological changes that might be missed post concussion.
Well I am here to tell you that you can get answers for your symptoms no matter how long it has been. It is possible to get back to a better quality of life than you are currently living. This may include decrease your pain, going back to school, decrease depression, being able to go to dinner with friends or even go to a movie! You can have your questions answered to explain what you have been going through. The truth is…these issues need to be evaluated.
If all of this is possible then they do you still suffer? Maybe you think there is no hope because you have tried everything. Maybe you don’t realize that you have been living with these symptoms for so long and you no longer know what “normal” is for you? Have prior healthcare professionals told you “it is all in your head” so you figured you would just live with it and this was your new normal?
