Bob Ming Jr says:

How to recover from this?

Mewcenary says:

I have been dealing with this for almost 4 years now and I can't get help, nothing has gotten better and I keep getting passed off because I don't look "disabled". I lost my job, I can't pay for my college courses, I am literally confined to my house, specifically my room due to the severe sensitivity to light/noise/ a constant migraine. I am in pain 24/7, the migraine never goes away, its at a constant 6/7 now that spikes throughout the day to 9/13 or 10/20 at worst to the point I want to die.

My Symptoms:
When it happened; No loss of consciousness but I almost did, I was in a state of being dazed, confused/ disoriented/ sleepy.
Migraine – pain lvl 6/7 constantly
Sometimes Nausea
Fatigue/ drowsiness/ Foggy
Problems with speech/ Slurred speech
Insomnia to Sleeping more than usual; maybe 1 to 3 hours of sleep a day for months
Dizziness, loss of balance & coordination
Blurred vision/ Pupils dilate, ringing in the ears, changes in the ability to smell
EXTREME Sensitivity to Light/ Sound/ Temperature
Memory loss & concentration problems/ Extremely overwhelmed & confused or lost if I am startled or don't understand
Mood swings/ depressed/ anxious/ Agitation/ unusual behavior/ Angry for no reason
Can't bend over or exercise/exert my self without exasperating it.

And those are just some of what I deal with every single day. It gets worse when I try to fight against it to do anything, like riding in a car or watching TV.

Ashley Ervin says:

Ashley Ervin says:

One year and eight months later…..I have eight for eight

Ashley Ervin says:

Sarah S says:

Thank you so much! I'm pretty certain I have post concussion syndrome — should I be avoiding certain activities that I was avoiding early on in my injury, such as looking at screens?

felipe melchor Hernandez says:

It's been 9 months since i have post conccussive syndrome and I still suffering with head pressure light and noise sensativity i haven't feel myself since then…i have depression anxiethy ,insomnia and irritability I don't know if this will go away some day

Madison Grooters says:

I have had symptoms for post concussion syndrome for a year and a little bit longer from when my two concussions occurred. Is this normal? If not normal, is it at least like possible? Part of me is afraid that I don’t really have it and I just have things wrong with me that I need to fix if that makes any sense.

Christy Zareth says:

Hi doctor…i was involved in a minor car accident a month ago..had a CT SCAN done and neurologist said I was okay…but i still have most of the symptoms you mentioned…what can I do about it?

Hortensia Murphy says:

Thank You Dr. Clark . This is very informative. It gives me peace of mind that I'm not losing my mind. This has been a long road of recovery and understanding.
