That's a great article.
I've read articles like this before and I trust the content of them, but I also read on previous posts here that you should exercise until you have symptoms and then stop for a break. Well, I get instant cognitive symptoms, "brain fog", as soon as I start. I know this is something I should be asking one of my therapists, but I thought I'd ask here too, just to expand the feedback on this subject. I would love to become more physical, go swimming, shoot hoops, do some push-ups..etc. I just don't like the way it makes me feel.
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.
