Welcome to NeuroTalk. I am sorry to hear of another head injury involving WC.
First, if you feel unsafe driving, Don't drive. You could make things much worse. If your husband can not drive you to work, stay home and call work and tell them that you are not ready to drive yourself to work.
If you can't convince your employer that you are not ready to be back at work, let your symptoms show and politely bow out when it gets too tough.
Is your doctor a WC doc? WC docs often try to minimize concussion issues. Either way, he does not understand concussions. Your body may be healing but your brain can take quite a bit longer. It is not uncommon for a concussion to take 6 weeks to recover.
In the mean time, stay away from alcohol and caffeine. You also need quiet rest.
Let us know how we can help. There are plenty of knowledgeable and experienced people here.
BTW, You can also help us by using a paragraph space every 5 lines or so. Some of us struggle to follow from the end of one line to the next.
Where are you a transplant to? I hope it is not California. WC is miserable in CA.
My best to you.
Mark in Idaho
58 years old, retired due to disability, married 33 years, father of three, grandfather of four, Suffered a serious concussion at 10 years old (1965) stopped most driving after last concussion at 46 years old (2001), Post Concussion Syndrome/Multiple Concussion/Impact Syndrome with PTSD, immediate and short term visual and auditory memory problems, slowed processing speed, visual and auditory processing difficulties, insomnia, absence seizures, OCD, 14 concussions since first concussion at 8 years old, Taking paroxetine for 14 years and gabapentin for 12 years. Added L-Tryptophan and successfully stopped all paroxetine after 3 months of tapering down. I currently take 500 mgs of L-Tryptophan when I wake up, 500 mgs after breakfast with my vitamin regimen and 500 mgs late in the evening.
As of Nov 15th, Due to high stress issues resulting in PTSD, my docs put me on three meds. Clonazepam (Klonopin, a dreaded benzo but only for 30 days ) .125 mgs twice daily (Doc prescribed .25 mgs twice daily but half a tablet is doing good) , citalopram (Celexa), an SSRI , and olanzapine (Zyprexa), an atypical anti-psychotic before bed. I have lost over 30 pounds since mid July. The olanzapine is supposed to help me gain some of it back but it has just stopped the weight loss. They took me off the gabapentin. I am feeling better than I have in years.
I am also taking L-Theanine to help with GABA regulation
