Thank you, very informative. Currently suffering with ‘hangover’ like symptoms after exercise. 10 months post concussion incident. Not very nice !

Angela Trudeau says:

That was the clearest explanation I have found. I was disbelieved by all the medical professionals I saw. All!

Believe it or not, i am recovering from a brain injury after being prescribed and cold turkeyed off of benzodiazepines. I have not been able to do anything more than light walking in over 7 years. Even most forms of yoga completely mess me up and ill be bedridden for a week. It makes me so sad.
