Thank you for posting your query.

I note that the head injury was one year ago. So, it is unlikely for symptoms to persist for so long, if no internal injury to brain occurred.

MRI scan of the brain can help us to find out the extent of injury to brain.

However, we should also investigate to find out any cause unrelated to the head injury. These include vitamin B12 deficiency and thyroid problems (both can be found out with blood tests).

Nose bleeds are unrelated, however, an ENT consultation would be useful in excluding any significant causes for the same.

Best wishes,
