I turned and hit right furthest side of forehead on the edge of a concrete wall. I had the usual flashes and headache you'd expect for a day or 2 and lump. Nothing then for a week then unbelievable pain behind right eye and up right side of forehead in early hours. I called 111 they advised I saw my doctor I called 3hrs later and I was sent to our local minor injuries unit. They took one look at me and saw my balance not right and couldn't focus and he called Burton hospital for immediate ct scan that came back bruising and swelling to right temple and frontal area and my doctor signed me off work for three mths in total with all symptoms of post concussion syndrome.
I've had balance issues, nausea, confusion, bad forgetfulness, headache over right eye, emotional; happy one minute then crying the next, feeling down on and off, feeling of zoning out and ringing in both ears over the last 3 mths from Feb to May.
From May I started reduced hrs at work I still have constant headache over my right eye and behind it to to trauma I've got high eye pressures I'm on permanent drops every night to try to get that down as it will turn into tramatic glaucoma if it doesn't or surgery maybe an option. I've just been told mri scan I had a mth ago has no abnormalities but still have fogginess and bad forgetfulness and ringing in ears also I developed a stutter and can't get words out properly since June I think I'm going to to see gp again even tho mri come back.
Can I speak to anyone that has same or similar experiences? It does make u feel alone trying to explain things to people who haven't got it
