Obviously removing the cause of headaches would be the best treatment. Over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen, aspirin, paracetamol and naproxen are commonly used to treat TTH and remain the mainstay of treatment for TTH. Using painkillers more than twice a week, however, can increase the risk of TTH developing into chronic daily headache. Psychological factors affecting your headaches are hard to tackle. You may find it helpful to learn relaxation techniques, and avoid stressful situations as much as possible. Discovering what works for you is the key.
If you are pregnant you should discuss use of any drugs both prescribed and over the counter with your doctor. Not all drugs are safe to use in pregnancy. Overusing painkillers to treat TTH can cause chronic daily headaches to develop. These headaches usually occur early in the morning, and their symptoms include: poor appetite, nausea, restlessness, irritability, memory or concentration problems, and depression. Thank you Kim. On four separate occasions from September, to February, I was knocked to the concrete floor by jail guards, or by slipping on newly wet-mopped floors.
I was diagnosed with a concussion after the first incident and my symptoms have increasingly worsened since then, e. My condition today is worse than its ever been. I've never sued anyone in my 64 year old life but am considering doing so. I just ran into one of the jail nurses in the public library and she told me she thinks I have a good case against the jail and the medical unit and will testify for me. Does this sort of lawsuit have a decent success rate? If so, how soon should I pursue it? Several years ago my son was playing basketball and fell hitting the back of his head on the hardwood however got right up and continued playing.
Nothing was ever done, I found out by viewing film of the incident. He has never been seen nor does he want to be. He does sometimes get very frustrated and loses his temper and has headaches that can sometimes be intense. Can this type injury have a long term effect that gets worst if not attended to? I fell on top of my head and it was a mild concussion. Didn't knock out or anything but its been a week and I still have headaches and if someone says a sentence to me, I cannot repeat it back.
I feel 10 times dumber and I was wondering when I am able to exercising and such. I fell very hard forward onto cement. I don't remember hitting the cement. Was knocked out for a few seconds. When I opened my eyes I was face down on the ground. My doctor says I have whiplash.
I had knee surgery from the fall. Have been going to physical therapy since for back neck knee and ankle. But know one seems to take me serious when I say I think I have a Concussion. I have a lot of the symptoms. I read where whiplash is a big symptom for concussion. My family have been noticing that I act different. I have horrible headaches. I cry all the time for no reason. And more symptoms. I don't know what to do. God bless you. You will be in my prayers.
I know it's awful but hang in there - some or all of this will recede with time. I took a nasty fall into my bathtub face down last night - seem to have a mild concussion and was very confused at first re the shower bench, shower curtain, rug etc I am grateful it was not worse like yours. Loving prayers for a full recovery. My 11 year old daughter fell and hit the back of her head on a table, she blacked out for a bit.
The dr said it was a mild concussion. That and when she was running in basketball she felt lightheaded during and had a headache after. She sat out a couple more weeks. Do I let her continue- the issues will go away eventually, or take her back to the dr? My other concussions where from playing high school football and getting hit by a drunk driver head on driving down the opposite side of the road. Also a PSA to teach your dog not to bark bc one day he might scare the shit out of you over a squirrel and you could crack your melon on a table like myself. If you just read this somber yet realistic article remember that these are possiblities not necessarily your reality and that a positive attitude will make a world of difference.
On February 22, , I slipped on ice and hit my head on a concrete step. I remember everything.
I knew when my heart stopped and that I needed to get back to my body or risk dying. There was a six minute delay from when my watch registered the last beat to when I woke up. So I guess I was dead for about 4 minutes. I woke and saw stars like Bugs Bunny and my eyes hurt. I was dizzy, disoriented and in a rush to get to work.
I went to the hospital later in the day and they said I had a very minor concussion.
Archived from the original on 8 December My favorite was to go to random places in major cities and see how many people and animals I could find. Twitting body, having a hard time walking now, etc. The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be difficult to sort out. In high school, I played football, and on one occasion was concussed true daze but never did anything for it. Some people report that flying in airplanes makes their symptoms worse shortly after a concussion.
I feel like my spirit came back to the wrong body. This one has malfunctions I never had to deal with before. Having an understanding of how much longer I have to endure this system failure is both comforting and depressing. At least now I know that this may never get better and to just accept what I cannot change so that I can focus on what I can effectively manage.
Not a minor concussion. If you lost any consciousness even for second that's a level 3 concussion. I just had one 2 days ago. First ever. I'm foggy, having a hard time concentrating, and feel lightly drunk. Yours sounds worse than mine. Get a specialist involved. After a fall and getting a concussion. After months is it normal for the area to regain a bump and soreness? No one did anything. When I got home, I told my mom and she told me to lie on the couch so I did and then she waited for like 4 hours until actually taking me to the doctor.
I'm 15 I hit the back of my head on the floor and my basketball game very hard They said they hurd it in the stands Now it's like I'm normal but not I'm moving show and I'm crying silently or sad I try to stay happy I feel like a light plus and it hurts but it doesn't hurt like it did yesterday what should I do and I have game Friday coming up don't want to let the team down. I understand im a college volleyball player that recently went through something similar.
Your brain is more important that one game.
Your teammates and coaches will understand. As a child, years of age, my Grandfather was very abusive toward me I remember it all. What he did to get me to behave is to throw his work boot right at my head, I would catch the heel of it every time, I remember this like yesterday, this happened everyday. Physically what happened is, I blacked-out, and saw stars, I felt my head spinning, the worst was it hurt because I could breath and gasping for air. Fast-Forward to my school years, I had behavior problems, I remember instances of my bad behavior toward teachers and classmates.
I remember being locked up in this padded cell until I calmed down, not realizing why I was there.

I know I can never understand how bad you feel about how things have turned out because of the actions of your grandparent but don't let that stop you from trying to move forward. It can be like your own lil' payback.
Find a support group or maybe a specialist that can help you with the issues. And you can start trying to accomplish goals that you want. Maybe try starting a business , become an entrepreneur or even start or join a foundation that helps put a stop to child abuse. Just something you would be proud of start working actively towards it and life may just surprise you. I know I'm an absolute stranger.
Just thought I should tell you what I was compelled to. Since my TBI four years ago I have visited the falls 3 times and each time I go there the same thing happens. I get Dizzy, confused, off balance, Nausea and disoriented. This effect if I stay too long will last me a few days. Hi I'm kaitlyn and I'm 18 in my life I have had three concussions, one when in was 3, 6, and I was wondering does it cause hearing problems I feel like through the years they have just been getting worse, I have difficulty concentrating, I lose my balance sometimes, I have difficulty remembering new information and trouble sleeping and falling asleep is all that long term effects from the concussions.
Everything besides the hearing part your going thru I went thru and still have short term memory loss.
That's why its hard for new to absorb anything new as its hard to concentrate one and two its hard for ur brain to hold it if it does. Feel free to message back anytime cause its good to have someone who understands this. I fell and hit my head and had a mild concussion and six weeks later I still wake up with foggy vision and have it throughout the day.
I see ziggly lines when I turn my head a certain way still hurts. Test came back fine. Is there anything out there to help at least a little? With any head trauma get your neck looked at.
My c1 was dislocated for almost 3 years after seeing specialist after specialist and no one ever looked at my neck. I fell 8' off the adder onto my concrete drive. Grade 3 concussion. Its been 6 weeks and at times the dizzy seems like its worse. Also whip lash and broken clavicle etc.
So the head is the worse. How long? I sustained a serious concussion in a bike accident when I was knocked out for 40 minutes and taken unconscious to the hospital. I woke up in the emergency room. I find I have to be careful on how much I do as I can quickly develop a headache and suffer quite badly at times with blurred vision and also used to have dizzy spells the worst of which was when I went to the bathroom one day and the next thing I know, I was on the floor with the room spinning around fast.
The first 3 to 4 months after my accident were very dark days indeed with mood swings, hospital visits and sorting out all the legal implications of the accident. I would have constant flashbacks of the moment of the accident which would no go away. I found if difficult to concentrate and take on ordinary things in life like going back to work after quite a long time off and sometimes just talking to people. It was like being in a fog, to be honest. Fortunately, with time things moved on, and now I am able to live a better life again. A concussion isn't always just a physical injury but can have far greater implication as I found out.
Do you have crying spells. I find myself crying alot every day for 6mts since my concussion was diagnosis. I'm trying hard to get the right help in treatment. For about six months after I got a concussion, I was super emotional, and would cry at the drop of a hat. This was totally out of character for me.
It eventually eased up, and I'm pretty much back to baseline. I hope you find the right treatment for your concussion. I became more emotional for a time after my serious concussion as its not just the physical injury but it can have effects on your way of thinking and your mood. Medication might help. This year I have managed for the first time properly to return to the scene of my terrible accident I had when I was knocked off my bike and Knocked Unconscious and I woke up in hospital. I got lumped up pretty good and got diagnosed with a concussion 12 days ago.
They ran a scan and said no skull fractures or bleeding.
I still stay dizzy on a regular basis and constantly have to lay down to regain myself. I cleaned my ears with q-tips and found dried blood from both ears. Obviously got a little concerned so have been reading up on stuff. All of my symptoms seem normal except nothing on the dried blood. Any suggestions besides continue to bother my doctors office? Thanks for any advice. I have the same burning in my brain as well after a concussion from being a back seat passenger in my friend's car.
We were stopped waiting for a pedestrian walking in front of us. We were struck from behind. I hit the back of the front passenger seat and then was thrown back to my back seat. We can read. My parts are killing me. Nothing but sand and a couple of Lincoln Logs. Yes, sir. Nobody look till I get my cork back in.
Never doubted you for a second. We are eternally grateful. Just kidding. Head to our round up of the 15 most important Pixar quotes according to you. Skip to Article. Crystal Nguyen.
