Re: Moderate concussion
Hi, Your symptoms point to a bad neck strain from whiplash, which is exactly what I ended up with also. The muscles in your neck, when stretched too far, tighten back up immensely, and these knots put pressure on the blood vessels going to the head, causing pain, dizzy spells, nausia, light headedness, concentration and memory problems etc. This does not go away on its own. This was explained to me by my physical therapist. You can have concussion symptoms, without actually hitting your head, I did. I would suggest you go back to your doctor, and tell the doc all of your symptoms, it sounds like you need physical therapy. This type is called counter strain, it is not exercises, as these can aggravate it even more. The therapist positions you a certain way, and this releases these muscles spasms, and this in turn takes out the tension, releasing the pressure and the symptoms start going away. Please don't put this off any longer as the symptoms will stay with you until taken care of. I do not know if it's too late for filing a suit with insurance but I would also check into that, as immediate treatment is what you needed. It is 11 years after my accident, I went through months of physical therapy as I couldn't even move my head at all, and was in severe pain, I had no broken bones, only a slightly bulging disk, but severe pain, stiffness, and terrible concussion symptoms. I have gone back to therapy here and there because any overuse brings back symptoms. Please go back to your doctor and get the proper treatment so you can get better. I hope you find relief soon.
