So I'm nearly 3 months post TBI and thought I'd provide a little update:
Really struggling with a low frequency vibration in my left ear (this was the side of my head that seemed to have taken most of impact) which I can only describe as hearing a car engine running outside my house. It started about 5 weeks ago but has been on and off. My GP said I had a build up of wax so prescribed olive oil drops twice a day for a week. It seemed to improve slightly but now it's started to get louder and feel like my head is vibrating. Has anyone else had this after a head whack and does it ever go away?
On a more positive note, the third nerve palsy in my left eye seems to be improving ever so slightly - initially the eyelid was completely closed and I could not open it at all no matter how hard I willed it to. The pupil was 'blown' and hardly any of the iris colour could be seen. Over the last few weeks, the eyelid has started to open by about a quarter and the pupil has reduced massively in line with the 'good eye'. However, this now poses another dilemma with having to contend with horrendous double vision and nystagmus (shaky eye). Having to wear the eye patch every day now as it makes the headache worse if I try to keep it closed. Trying to see the positives in that at least it's started to open again.
