Post-Concussive Syndrome

Over the past 13 years, I've blacked-out, fallen & hit my head thus created concussions that have led to TBI's 3 times! The most recent episode was June 2016. I stood up from a patio table & fell face first onto concrete. I fractured my jaw, broke a tooth and had a blue/black bruise from my neck to my cheek bone. Slowly I started having symptoms day after day. Then the daily headaches & brain pressure began in Oct. 2016. After 5 months of going to all different specialists & having a clear MRI & MRV the 3rd & final neurologist diagnosed me with New Daily Persistent Headaches. I went crazy. I'm walking with a quad cane, can't spell, dropping everything, etc... I could go on & on. I went to The Cleveland Clinic & the doc didn't look at my tests. He knew what I had just by looking at my 4 page symptom list. He diagnosed me with Post-Concussive Syndrome. But I have something else going on. I'm in chronic pain, both from headaches & pressure in my head. My symptoms are leveling off but new ones were happening every day. my neurologist in Columbus has ordered a Spinal Tap to check the pressure of my Cerebral Spinal Fluid & an EMG. Many of my symptoms can be explained by PCS but what is wrong with my brain?
