Well, it's been an interesting few weeks in my post concussion head.
It's been about a month or so since my last post, when I was considering using omega 3 supplements because I'd heard of their benefits for heads. I think I must be getting to the point now where I am starting to feel their benefit. I've not been needing to take my prescription pain killers (which were given with the instructions to take as required) anywhere near as often. My neck and head do still have an almost constant ache but I got that with the pain killers anyway.
Also, I can fully vouch for the added bonus of finding a great physio. After one session of massage and ultrasound, followed by being given instructions for stretching exercises, I was much better. I've since been back for another equally successful session and have another booked for a few weeks. I've also restarted swimming and climbing, and have been going to pilates, which is working wonders.
On another note, which won't have helped my post concussion head - I've been told I have hayfever triggered sinus pain. I have to admit that I've wondered for a few years if I had hayfever but always brushed it off. I went to the doctor with what I thought might have been a sinus infection...
Other things - the local NHS is still slow. I eventually got a neurology appointment for September but only on the third attempt of booking after my referral.
I still can't fully shake the headache, neck ache and dizziness.
I still have moments where I get so spaced out that I have to lean on something otherwise I feel like I'm fall over.
I still get very tired very easily and end up snapping at my partner. He tried to understand but sometimes forgets that I can't process a lot of information when I've just woke up or late at night. Then he gets wound up with me because I can't answer his questions as quickly as I used to before I hit my head. Then I get annoyed with him and myself because my brain doesn't work as quickly as it used to... it's all a vicious circle.
I have a similar problem at work... but the less said about that the better.
Oh well, nearly the school holidays. Hopefully 6 weeks in North Wales with the mountains, the sea, some steam engines and my camera will help.
