Later, after you said that you were still having problems did you discover that you had other issues that you didn't realize that you had at initially? I discovered that I had about 3 other lesser issues. My sense of smell, my hearing, and the recurrence. Good luck hon.

I played football from the time I was 7, had 3 diagnosed concussions and multiple that were not. The worst one a teammate and I both ran after the QB and he ducked, and we hit helmets and it made my vision blurry and side-ways. I’ve struggled with bouts of anxiety and depression and often feel spaced out. I had one 2 years ago while working and hit my head on a cabinet just standing up and I can tell you, it was by far the worst one I had. To sum up my point, I also live with symptoms that have effected me for years. I’m 25 now and I consume cannabis and it helps tremendously. I hate to hear other people struggling with this but glad I’m not alone. If there are any suggestions for help and treatment let me know. (I’m aware try e video is a year old but I just found it haha)

I got a concussion in 8th grade, I’m now a junior in high school. My symptoms got better but my memory never came back I struggle immensely in school and daily life does anyone have suggestions I feel like I’ve exhausted every option.

I'm here as a testimony that by the grace of God you can and will recover from PCS. I swung my head harshly into a sharp edge of a table in 2012. I felt whiplash movement. The onset of my PCS came on about 5-6 days later… Like a delayed reaction. Every symptom you can think of, i had it. EVERY ONE. Full recovery was about 2 years more or less (it wasn't at its worst the whole entire time.) My remaining symptoms are eye floaters and light sensitivity… Otherwise I am NORMAL. One day at a time by the grace of God, call onto him and acknowledge him and be grateful… He will heal you ❤️🙏

I feel your pain. It was tough for sure, just keep on going and know that it will get better. Wish you the best.
