I suffered a hematoma 3 months ago after a vicious attack on a night out. It's the first time I've reached out for help but I am struggling with the psychological side of it all. Any little pain I feel I instantly hit the panic button. Also where my incision was is just a constant shooting pain like little lightning bolts. All of this is apparently normal but it's just difficult after being the outgoing person I was to the shy guy with no confidence I now am.
