Hi All - I suffered a concussion 3 months ago and have been off work since. initially i completed total brain rest and then slowly got back into light activities and routine. My major symptom throughout this concussion was not being able to use any type of screens, it would give me horrible headaches within minutes. By the second week of august i was able to use tv and laptop screen up to 5-6 hours a day (pretty much normal) but then out of nowhere towards the 3rd week of August my screen problems came back and now i can't look at a screen for more than 20-30 mins and my brain seems to hurt in one specific spot. I also get bad headaches and pain at night... is this type of regression normal? am I still on a normal path to recovery? I'm just worried I may have set myself back again a few months but not sure if this kind of up and down regression is normal with concussions? what is the best plan of action from here on out?
I am scheduled to go back to work by end of September. My doctor has said he expects 100% recovery. Any opinions or tips coping with screens would be great!
