Hi, I hit my head hard just over a month ago - somehow headbutted a door! I was fine for a few days except for an increasingly sore neck (whiplash?), then exactly a week after I woke up in shock and felt like I was going to pass out. I somehow manged to get to the docs and then down to A&E for an MRI which came up ok. From then on I've not been able to walk far and find it impossible to sleep despite being tired. I was prescribed Temazapam for 10 days which basically knocked me out for 4 hours but turned my legs to jelly and gave me the shakes. Now I'm on Nytol (diphenhydramine) which sends me sleep but only for a couple of hours. I was wondering if this is just a phase, I'm feeling better in myself, the early symptoms of nausea and anxiety have gone but desperately need my sleep. I wondered how others have dealt with sleep issues?
