Need some advise i saw a neuropsycholigist about 3 weeks ago and been told i have post concussion, she told me its from having my head injury 4 years ago and then going into a plumbing firm working so many hours has caused stress i left this company 4 weeks of joining and why i have still the symptoms still 4 years later is just stressed related from the month i did at plumbing. I have to keep pushing myself which she said i need to do (which is making things worse) i work 15 hours a week and started a stained glass course finding it all a struggle as it is, i struggle from work and can wipe me out but have to keep going as money is an issue i guess for every one else to she told me not to bother with headway as they are for severe brain injury and i have no brain injury so will not help me, i have had no testing done to see if there is a problem but then i dont no how they test you either, feeling very confussed at the moment on what to do. I have memory problems, dizziness, headaches, insomnia, forgetful, confussion, cant focus, brain fog etc.
Also from the accident i got whiplash and found out recently my vertabreas in my neck are squashed which i no does not help either.
I need to understand what is persistant post concussion is i have leaflets but im not understanding it. I've got mixed messages from the neuro psycholigist i hope that all made sense and would love to hear from other people and what they feel and how they cope with this.
Thank you so much in advance xxxx
