It's nearly two years since my husbands bi and he seems to fallen through a gap in nhs healthcare. He is functioning, trying at the moment to work part time and has the familiar symptoms of headaches, tinnitus and visual disturbance when tired - and fatigue of course. In the few weeks after the crash that injured him he saw a private neurologist who provided advice to his GP on pain relief. That was through work health benefit and he no longer works there so can't go private now. He has plateau'd in recovery and wants to be able to talk to a specialist about all his symptoms and certainly about pain relief going forward. His GP, in the nicest possible way, hasn't a clue. The GP tried to make a referral to a neuro-rehabilitation dept at Southmead in Bristol but that dept doesn't even seem to exist. There is no neuro rehabilitation in Somerset and I am not even sure if neuro-rehabilitation is the dept he needs. The GP is just guessing and taking my husband's word for what he needs - as if he would know! I'm trying to find someone in Headway to talk to who knows the local services but thought I would ask you guys.
So in summary - on going post concussion symptoms, debilitating headaches and fatigue, seriously considering he should be giving up trying to work. In your experience which of the neuro specialists should he be asking his GP to refer him to?
