Hey, sorry only saw your response today.
No, thankfully it came back negative but for some reason, they told me they could tell I got one hell of a blow. They told me this while I was in the MRI machine so I'm not quite sure how they got to that conclusion. Any ideas?
No real improvement unfortunately. My sensitivity to light seems to have gone away, that's the only positive news. I've still got headaches and concentration problems. About a week ago I had 3-4 days where I felt relatively good, I finally thought I was finished with it all but the headaches came back on the 5th day and now, I feel exactly like before.
It's not easy, my uni exams are coming up, I'm also studying for the GMAT. I can't afford to rest or not do anything.
I had a really uncomfortable experience at the end of last week. I've been studying for the GMAT for 15-20 days. Up until now I've only been reading the theory and doing a few exercises. I've had headaches and concentration problems but it was bearable.
Last week I decided I wanted to test myself with a time constraint, to simulate test day conditions.
So I started the 35 minute simulated test. Unfortunately, after 10-15 minutes, I could feel pain slowly but surely developing in my head, something I've never felt before. At the 20 minute mark, it was bearable but I had a massive headache, it was literally thumping.
At the 30 minute mark I had to stop, the pain was seriously "hurting". Never in my life have I had that type feeling, where I could notice my headache getting bigger and bigger by the minute. Couldn't focus on what I was reading, couldn't concentrate on the text.
I don't really know what happened. Could this have been due to the stress related to the time constraint mixed with the mental focus I had to use?
This is the first time since the accident (now 2 months ago) that I really gave it my best in terms of mental focus/concentration to do a task.
It really sucks. The real GMAT test is in a bit more than 20 days so I hope I won't experience this on test day.
I'll try and take a 3 and a half hour long practise test on Friday (same amount of time than the official test) to see how things go.
I also went to see an osteopath last week. He manipulated my neck region quite a bit. He said that my neck was totally "blocked" that the "streams" weren't flowing efficiently. He said that what he did would help me.
