Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.

I have gone through your symptoms and it may be reassuring for you to note that there is no serious problem with your brain.

There are two possibilities:
1. Concussion- related to the accident and head injury. This can lead to confusion, forgetfulness and behavioural changes. However, these are transient and you would completely recover within 6-12 weeks.

2. Anxiety neurosis- as you have also mentioned, many of these symptoms could be because of anxiety. You may require anxiolytics medications such as clonazepam and counselling. Please consult a psychiatrist or psychologist if you do not improve.

Best wishes,
