Re: MINOR head injury - PCS?
I agree with Pingree70. Your injury is recent and you may just need a little more time to heal. But you still need to have scans and be checked out by a neurologist. I will caution you, though, that not all neurologists recognize PCS, especially if your scans come back clear. I suffered a concussion last fall in a car accident. All my scans came back clear. I knew nothing about PCS at the time and my neurologist never mentioned it. He tried blaming my symptoms on everything under the sun, except my head injury. After nine months of being given the runaround, I finally requested therapy to help me deal with my memory issues. My therapist told me about PCS and referred me to a neuro-psychologist who evaluated and made the diagnosis. So, if your tests come back normal and a little time doesn't take away your symptoms, push for that diagnosis. The earlier you're diagnosed and begin addressing the symptoms, the better your chances of full recovery.
