Hello everyone. I have never been on any forums before; this is all new to me. I am a 50 year old man, generally fit and active.
On Sunday the 9th April this year I was involved in a road accident when cycling, the car did not see me. I do appreciate how lucky I am to be able to post this today. I woke up in the ambulance, by best description of what happened is fuzzy. My helmet probably saved me.
I was CT scanned and kept in hospital overnight. I was reassessed the following week as my symptoms were still making me scared. I have been to my GP and told time will sort this.
I know everyone will be different, and I am asking, properly out of frustration, if anyone has had similar ongoing systems.
I am sleeping 10-12 hours at night and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon. I am very sensitive to bright light and loud noise. I feel sea sick if I walk or move my head to quick. My concentration is not good and my memory is not good.
I felt I was making progress between week 2 and 3 but I seem to have stopped progressing. I don’t understand the NHS online advice. What should I be doing to help myself, or is it just time?
Thanks for reading
