Concussion, head heaviness at the back of head. MRI, cognitive sleep study done. Treatment?

Hello. I sustained a violent injury in January. I fell and hit my head on a tiled school floor. This resulted, after many tests and doc consults, in a concussion . I have a heavy feeling in the back of my head on the right. I fell on my right side and I use a can to assist me with balance as I list to the left frequently when walking or just standing while doing the dishes. I have just finished with a battery of tests including ear, MRIs, cognitive, sleep studies, etc. The feeling of heaviness is most worrisome as it seems silly that I should feel it.

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding heavyness at the back of your head, though you sustain injury over head.

As you said you had been investigated for so many things and still your heavyness in head is same, you have some problem in balancing also. here you are actually having sequely of head injury which will recover with variable prognosis so you please remain in touch of your nurologist and physiotherapist.
