Is this normal??
Once again my computer denied me access for ages. I hope you are all progressing.
It's been good news for me. I want to share with you ....Finally saw my neurologist and he took me seriously. Organised an MRI and an EEG. I already have my appt's!
I know memory is an issue for most of us PC. But how many of you suffer an illogical brain? For instance I can be holding the kettle and not know what to do with it. Or a client can ask me a question and because I have been put on the spot I do not know what to say. It is not until about 2 hrs later that I will work out the answer.
Is this a common problem for you?
I am a 36 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.
