Hi , I was involved in a head on car crash 100kph a year ago and had to be cut out of the car which took 45 minutes. I have just had an MRI which according to the specialist shows no brain damage and the nearly 21 symptoms that on this site I have are apparently caused when I feel low. The MRI report states I have some shrinkage but no damage and does not comment on side parts of the brain. My symptoms only appeared following the accident and I have only just found this site and checked my symptoms. I feel that the symptoms are being dismissed as just in my head. On the day of the accident my sternum was broken and my heart rate or blood pressure dropped rapidly down to at least 34 three times. Once at the scene and twice in the hospital in the afternoon, I was given drugs to restore to normal levels. I do not remember the impact and do not know if I was unconscious or not, I only became aware of the intense pain and the lack of being able to get my breath. I would be interested to know how this could all be in my head
