Dear Starr,

Time.
That is the answer to everything. The brain cannot wear a bandage or plaster it must heal from inside. I would strongly advise homeopathy.

The way it works is to scare your body into action. ie. if you suffer hayfever, the tablet you would be given would aggrevate your body and the natural immunity would say "I don't like this", and kick into action. The result - your body begins to have much fewer symptoms.

Homeopathy treats the whole person, so if you are on edge, easily frightened, jumpy etc you will be prescribed a tablet to calm you down and reassure.

I have been on it since my accident and I know it is working because of the changes in me when I came off it for 3 weeks.

I am a 34 yr old female who has played football, as a hobby, for 13 yrs. In July 2012, during a game I was slammed to the floor by two angry guys who hit into me so hard that one of them broke their ribs.

This knocked me back onto hard ground leaving me unconscious. I awoke to chronic head and neck pain, sickness and the inability to see or balance.

The paramedics made me walk to the ambulance, instead of placing me on a spinal board, where I was taken to the ER. I was hospitalised with suspected brain hemorrhage for 1 week, then on complete bed rest for 1 month, in a wheelchair for 2 months.

I have been left with PCS, moderate constant head pain, little short term memory, no memory of the accident, balance and sight problems, depression and exhaustion.

The worst problem is collapsing regularly. This has finally been diagnosed as Hemiplegic Migraines , these cause my brain to regularly shut down when I am tired and I then feel the full effects of a stroke (without the bleed on the brain!!) of which the symptoms last 2-4 days.


I have had 6 CT's, 2 MRI's and am under 3 specialists.

I believe everyday is one more towards improvement. Mainly I believe in the power of acceptance not the weakness of complacency or resignation.

Homeopathy may be a safe and good option to try.

Fours year after, and I am still learning to live with the easily startled thing.
It's become better as I have, yet it's still present.

Wishing you well.
