What do you do with head injuries?
Iv been sleeping alot in the day last night I had a hard time and kelt waking up.
I was in a four car pile up, my car got the first impact from a standstill, car hit me at like 40mph....car went to car heaven :(
Things I'm having trouble with:
Remembering the converatation if interupted for just a second, studering, thinking of certin words. Litteraly can't think at moments like that.
Headache going into the back of my eyes. Have to re foccusmy eyes and blink alot.
Sleeping all day but hard time at night, keep waking up more then once every hour.
Today I throwing up, didn't feel sick would just puke and still not feel sick, just the super dizzy feeling and shaky.
These are almost exactly my migrane symptoms, except I also get auras so bad I can't see, get a numb feeling in my fingers and face, and am extremely light sensitive. So I feel your pain girl!!! As long as you have had medical attention and there is not any brain swelling, etc.. then you just have to give your body and brain the time they need to heal. It sucks, I know. I usually get really bad migranes at least twice a year where I can be bed ridden for a week - you might have to be prepared for this, or other long term symptoms as well. I can recommend sunglasses, avoiding flourescent lighting, switching to a "whole food" diet (as much as is practical), avoiding your triggers and reducing stress, working out really helps for stress reduction.
Concussions, and other brain injuries are tough because they will affect you for the rest of your life. Also, now that you've had one, you are something like 30-50% more likely to get another.
Good luck!!! If you need to PM someone my inbox is open :)
