Thank you everyone for your kind words and advice.
Unfortunately, I'm still not feeling any better than I was when I wrote this. In fact, it has gotten worse. It's frustrating that nobody can help me or explain why I'm declining. My neurologist is stuck on "If it's not showing up on the MRI, then it's psychological". It's NOT psychological. There is a real problem going on here and I'm determined to get to the bottom of it. I just don't know where to start.
I'm about to starve myself or dehydrate because when I eat or drink anything, my cognition gets 100x worse. What's up with that? I thought it was bad when I wasn't able to watch TV without throwing my brain for a loop for hours/days, now I can't even eat or drink.
I haven't been doing much but resting the last few days. I've run a few errands but nothing more than that. Still don't feel any better. Another permanent decline with no end in site.
What happened: I was randomly assaulted from behind in June of 2011. I was knocked unconscious for an unknown amount of time (less than 30 minutes) and have no memory of the event. CT scan showed contusion and hematoma of the left frontal lobe. I spent 3 days in the hospital. Diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome in September 2011. Currently have Medicaid and SSI.
Current symptoms: Brain fog, anxiety, panic attacks, memory issues, confusion, problems with spontaneity, sensitive to loud noises, trouble thinking, problems with producing speech, spacing out, word finding difficulties, tinnitus in both ears, random tingling in different parts of my head and many other things that I can't explain. I'm very easily overloaded which makes it nearly impossible to watch TV or use the computer.
If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK.
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these.
