I had a slip & fall incident in May (7 months ago), where I suffered a concussion
from hitting the back of my head on a concrete floor. Had a concussion and hurt my lower back & neck. I've been fine since, except for not being able to perform take part in normal daily exercise, just physical therapy
. Recently, and for the past 2 months, I've been experiencing strange symptoms. It started while driving to work one night. At first I thought I was just tired, but it continues. While driving, I get a feeling of vertigo and this anxiety comes over me where I feel like cars are going to hit me or like I am going to drive off a cliff. Doesn't matter if it's night or day. Saw my eye doctor for an exam, and my eyes are fine. No glasses needed. Both my PCP & Eye Doc think I was having post-concussion symptoms. Besides driving, I get a weird numbness
in my arms and feet. I'll get a sense of confusion, forgetting everyday customer's names or even my co-workers. I'll get really hot, maybe even sweat. Feel like I'm going to passout or vomit. I've had a headache for 8 days in a row now. I've been a migraine
sufferer since 2007. My neurologist
diagnosed me back in March with Chronic Migraines. Saw him 4 wks ago and told him all of these symptoms. He just said the same thing again, prescribed me Neurontin
, which I am refusing to take. I don't want to take medication like that. Since the visit, I've been dealing with the same symptoms. I've had an EEG & an MRI last wk and am awaiting the results. I have no idea what this could be and it's really effecting me, my work performance and even operating a vehicle. I could endanger myself or someone else and I'm really freaked out. Please help!
