On Monday 11th of July I got hit in the face by a bus wing mirror which resulted in closed fractures: maxillary sinus and a linear fracture in the upper left forehead area. No other damages have been reported except a small amount of extra axial blood-which the doctors told me it's from the bone and not from the brain. Been kept 48 hours in the hospital under medical observation and no issues were found.
Also been told that I have not been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury or brain injury.
However 25 days have passed and I over the past 10 days I started to worry a great deal over the prospects of developing brain tumor or hematoms or having internal bleeding. Any burning sensation I'd feel where the scar is, any change in the mood, any mild headache would make me freak out thinking I am going to die, going deaf or turning blind over time.
The anxiety is getting better when I keep myself busy but sometimes it does get exhausting. I am wondering if there is any way I can overcome this difficult period.
For my reassurance I am in talks of getting a referral for an MRI scan to see if 4 weeks later there are any damages to the brain or internal bleeds.
I am very very scared, lost weight over my irrational fears and all I want is to be myself all over again.
