Thanks for writing to us.
I can assure you that none of the symptoms you are suffering is as a result of head injury you suffered. These are as a result of mostly anxiety and hormonal changes. At this stage, exercising, practicing breathing exercises and generally relaxing would help a lot. Kindly consult your physician to consider starting you on hormone replacement therapy and anti-anxiety medications.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
