7 months ago I was assaulted and suffered concussion, I was unconcios for a few minutes. I was taken to hospital where I was examined by a doctor being told my symtoms should clear up within a few hours/days.
About 3 weeks after this many of my symptoms were still very much there such as headaches (which were worse than at the start at this point!) dizziness, sick feeling, sleep disturbance etc. So I visited my GP again and I was given painkillers and was told it can take up to a few months to clear up.
The symptoms, particuarly the headaches continued to worsen so i visited my GP again several times as it was beginning to really affect my life and i continued not getting any further ahead.
Now, at this point, almost 8 months on, my headaches are debilitating me and have stopped me working, socialising and everything !
The pain is hard to explain but i'll try...i have a constant headache and sometimes i feel great pressure and tension, feels like my head is going to explode and i get like rushes of blood to the head feeling alot during any sort of physical activity> I've noticed my eyes sometimes feeling weak aswell now as if their finding it hard to focus. Headaches are considerably worse in the mornings, it begins to pound as soon as i open my eyes now.
Im scheduled for my FIRST CT scan this week after a 7week wait. I haven't been given the opportunity to speak to a neurologist as of yet! I'm on loads of tablets with no noticable improvement and im only 20years old!
Has anybody had any experience with this kind of thing? Or any ideas what could be wrong with me? This is really frightening me as the longer its being left the worse it is getting.
Please any advice or comments would be so gratefully recieved...
Many thanks fo r taking the time to read this.
