Suffered a seat belt trauma in an accident. Deep inner ear damage. Had skull fracture and concussion. Are my problems due to both episodes?

Very briefly I was in an auto a/c in 2009. Suffered seat belt trauma. Deep inner ear damage left side. A/c was in right side. Much happened with gait, speech, etc and had multi PEs in lungs that kept from going to Ireland in 4 days. To this date I continue to have problems and not myself since the a/c. Within the yr. I feel down a flight of steps (blackout) no memory til 3rd day. TBI ( skull fractures and concussion ) and am going thru many therapist dealings. I know this is little info, but can the 2 be related. 4 yrs of my life have been interrupted tremendously and I don t know if they are separate or related. There is much more detail, but what is your first reaction?

Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic,

I have studied your case,

It looks like both thing are connected . your petrous temporal bone may be damaged ,leading to ossicle disruption,leading to blackouts or memory loss.
Temporal lobe of your brain may be damaged. I hope that MRI of brain has been done and you are taking medication accordingly.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
