Hi, I am a 35 year old female that was the front seat passenger in an auto accident one year ago. The impact occured on the front and passenger side of the car. I experienced back spasms immediately and some disorientation . Since the accident I have had to re-learn my phone number (took 2 months) re-learn my address (took 3 months) and numerous other things too. I feel like I am drunk all the time, memory loss (short and long term) blurred vision and slight slurring of my speech. Unless of course, I am having what I call a "bad head day" then the slurring is extreme, double vision, shaking, and loss of balance. Somedays I can't even tie my own shoes! I don't recall hitting my head, and I had no tender spots either. The doctor has told me that it is quite similar to Shaken Baby Syndrome. I have had x-rays, a CT scan, as well as a test that they hooked up electrodes to my head (I have forgotten the name). My doctor put in a request to a brain injury clinic and rehabilitation center, but I was turned down because of the lawsuit. My GP has no answers for me, and he cannot tell me if I will be like this permanently or not. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Does anyone have any ideas that might help me? I would appreciate any input at all, thank you!
