I am struggling with brain injury my symptoms is vertigo,sake,cant walk and cant talk clearly I fall down where I life doesn't have a good doctor at least I did therapy

Michael Skinner says:

What if after years, they distance themselves from family, or have behavioral and substance abuse problems that begin to interfere with their health and daily life?

What do you do if they push you away or don‚Äôt want help? Do you just let them wither away, or be by themselves? After years of watching that behavior go downhill, it becomes painful…

I know for anyone else, you just let them be, but with a brain injury, they begin to really lose themselves. The thought of them being on the side of the road and not knowing who they are, or where they are, is frightening. Not just to them, but family that cares

Michele Fisher says:

This only for people just injuring their brains.

Midnight Mogui says:

I breathed in a toxin at work. This caused 'enormous' 24/7 headaches for 3 months. Now, I have double vision in both eyes…everytime I push or indeed stand for too long I get enormous left sided headaches, double vision gets worse, fatigue etc. My neurologist says my scans are ok but I simply can't push out of it. I spend most days seated. It's been over a year now. I'm so unhappy. Does anyone know what I should do?

I really hope @Prichard colon wakes up one day and is back to reality , his story is so heartbreaking and I wish it never had happened ūüíĒūüíĒūüíĒ #JusticeForPrichardColon !

William Sevalie says:

Hello my brother is currently in this kind situation and the Doctor said that he needs a brain surgery which can't be done in the country or neither the hospital. So do think he will survive without the surgery?

Michael John S says:

Thank you to dr Eseigbe for using his herbs treatment to cure my multiple sclerosis https://youtube.com/channel/UCvGz1DqNpScob6MXKrACYhg.

Wish everyone I knew could just watch this video..

Troy Hayder says:

Yeah your right…i do look like a brain damaged person..cause as far as i can see most of them look like everyone else….

Krystyl Summers says:

The estimate was 10% of military personnel.

Ugh.our brains are to damn fragile

This Old Boat says:

Well I made it to 7:25 before I just couldn't watch the garbage anymore. Social workers are a scam and a big fat gaping hole in the tax money bag.

nick taddeo says:

Thanks ūüėä

Mr Whitten says:

I was glad to finally see a video that showed the process from the accident to ICU to acute care and onward. My adult stepdaughter's biological father (71 yoa) was in a serious MVA (no seat belt) last week and has been diagnosed with severe diffuse axonal injury. They can't perform an MRI due to his pacemaker not being compatible, but the CT scan shows bleeding/lesions peppered throughout his brain. The hospital is already making plans to have him transferred to a long term acute care hospital once they wean him off the ventilator. My stepdaughter is terribly stressed as she is left with making all the decisions and lives several states away from her father.

MysticalDream says:

Thank you for this video. It is very helpful. Shortly after college graduation I still had a lot of assignments to finish and I Collapsed, hitting my head on the edge of my table where I was working on my last assignments. I Woke up in the hospital and after telling the staff what last happened before my collapse. They discovered a blood clot that had to be flushed out. I am still recovering from mild traumatic brain injury. It's already been a year since my accident.

my dad has been rickroll'd says:

I love it
It's an inspiration

redpooh5 says:

How long should a person be in ICU after the brain injury?

ds electroshock says:

Many of us seeking assistance following electroshock are not helped as other trauma and traumatic brain injuries are helped. Trauma medicine and brain injury programs recognize TBI results from electrical trauma. Just because we sustain it at the hands of culpable providers does not change this fact. Our complaints are written off to protect those that harmed us. Here is a link to assist those trying for assistance in rehabilitation. https://youtu.be/7BaWGCwnxLg See sites ectjustice and Life After ECT. ectjustice is now owned by law firms participating in the current national product liability suit. ectjustice2 coming soon.

Y'all have great stories I just searched something and this interested me. Don't ask.

Brain Injury Recovery VLOG - Jarred Payne says:

The end is so true. It can take a long time. I’m about 2 years in and still recovering. Recovery is hard and mundane but the most rewarding thing ever

ds electroshock says:

I am a level one trauma nurse of many years that worked at leading facilities. I was going to be a flight nurse. I give this background to let you know I am familiar with trauma. I am no longer a trauma nurse which was my passion, secondary to consenting to this procedure I was told was safe and effective.

I am addressing those in rehabilitation medicine. I am asking for help in addressing these brain injury outcomes, now proved around devices in the California courts. The issue is electroshock or ECT. We have sustained repeated brain injuries at the hands of trusted providers. We are now sustaining further damages from providers, in trying to find help, and this is where I turn to your profession.

Since providers do not want to implicate other providers nor facilities, never mind their risk their medical career if they were to expose this, we as victims of this are greatly suffering. I do not like to use the word victim, but here it applies. 

I am diligent with my own care in trying to recover from this and am far from silent when I cannot access needed resources. I am lucky in this way to be outspoken and to have a background that is well aware of testing needed and what has transpired around this. I am met with the same as my peers often in spite of this. 

We are TBI survivors just as any other survivor, only our mechanism of injury being electrical was delivered by physicians hands. We struggle daily to maintain our lives after not just one head injury, but multiples. We are told we have not been harmed. We are gas lighted when our reality is already skewed by traumatic brain injury. We ask for help, but doctors ignore and minimize us. 

We cannot access testing nor services, because reason for same would have to be acknowledged, and better to ignore than have your name as a provider in the notes exposing this battery at best. My peers are killing themselves because we are discounted in our suffering and actually in many instances treated with overt contempt when trying to find help from doctors and staff.

Below is an outcome that is mine. I have been now identified with damages to my frontal lobes, cerebellum, and temporal lobes by a TBI specialist secondary to electroshock. It is is the medical records. I ask you in rehabilitation medicine to have these conversations with others so we can address this harm and get help to those that desperately need it. Expose this and shine a light as the public is at great risk. You are familiar with our struggles. We are just like any other TBI patient that needs your help and recognition please.

There is a test called the VNG that is used to identify concussions and other brain injuries. It is the in office test similar to the on field test the NFL players now get called the I-PASS. Below are damages recorded in notes by TBI specialist to outcomes of electroshock. Perhaps this test  may be used to identify TBI in ECT patients, as it is used for TBI in the NFL. These below findings around ECT are resulting from VNG testing. Patients are also showing changes on MRI, EEG, neuro/cog testing, and SPECT.

23.  Upward gaze 14 degree: Notable pitch plane head movement

24.  Downward gaze 14 degree: Notable pitch polane head movement.

25.  Horizontal optokinetics 25 dps: L optokinetics provoked dysconjugate gaze. Reflex failed with R otokinetics

26.  Horizontal optokinetics with volitional targeting: Worsens

27.  Vertical pursuits 10 degrees: Intrusive saccades with downward pursuits

28.  Random vertical saccades: Upward intrusive saccades, cannot maintain downward gaze

29.  Vertical optokinetics 25 dps: Reflex failed.

30.  Vertical optokinetics with volitional targeting: Worsens

31.  Repeated random horizontal saccades; Latencies increased significantly bilaterally

Please see ectjustice now owned by law firms participating in national product liability suit. My gratitude for any exposure you can bring to this issue.

ayla lanman says:

I was in a automobile accident on my 21st birthday, I was asleep in the back seat when the driver went for her phone which had fallen into the passenger floorboard; she went off the road and flipped the car I flew forward smashing and shattering my face, then folded in half backward into the passenger seat floorboard. I broke my l2 and my l3, my nose my jaw, my forehead, my eyesockets, my face and suffered severe traumatic brain injury. I was in the hospital for a week before the had me "alive" enough to send me home, I was only awake for two of those days. Never have I had anyone professional help me. Never have I went back to the doctor. Not because I don't care, I want to know what all is wrong with me I still have real struggles with my short term memory. I still go to work I still pay my taxes and I am still a father and a husband to those who need me, I just wonder how bad is it and will I have permanent or degenerative side effects I'm 29 now and while I have improved a lot there is still a lot I can't improve.
