I am new to this and looking for some advice!
I am 29 years old
So in June last year I was knocked unconcious playing rugby, I followed all the correct guidelines for returning to play and in February this year I had another knock to the head resulting in feeling concussed for a few days. Since then I have chosen to not play rugby or other contact sports anymore.
One thing I have noticed about myself is the effect alcohol has on me, just a few drinks is enough to leave me with those concussions symptoms again. I have also made the decision to not drink alcohol.
has anybody heard of this before?
One thing I have also noticed about myself is that I have developed what I suspect is Restless Leg Syndrome, sometimes I feel very anxious and will just worry about my head which sends my legs into a bit of a frenzy.
I am lucky that I can still work, drive, study and generally function well. However when worrying about my head I will test myself in silly ways. For example I will give myself stupidly difficult mental maths questions to see If I can do them, or I will see a number plate and try and remember it later on...things mentally healthy people do not do anyway!
Is it normal to still have these symptoms still normal? I know the brain takes a long time to heal and I must be patient.
Just looking for some advice reallty.
