Suggest treatment for persistent headaches post injury

I had a mild mva - I was stopped at red light and was hit t back - my neck and head hurt immediately with a temporary sharp pain over right occiput. I feel that I have a mild concussion ... my headache never goes away My doctor thinks flexion/extention injury ... I am 75 and have been told that concussion in older age can lead to earlier Alzheimers

You may be suffering from counter croup injury. Which may lead to a headache. Sometimes it may cause dementia.

So take painkillers like tramadol for pain. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I experienced a head injury while at work in march of 2015 . After a cat scan which showed nothing I was sent by W S I B to a neurosurgeon who said basically there was nothing wrong with me .I was forced back to work on a gradual scale . From the day after the incident I have had a headache some days more severe than others . This past summer the headaches began being more severe so my family doctor just prescribed more Tylenol 3 saying I ll probably have headaches for the rest of my life . By November they had become so severe I was taking between 4 and 6 tylenol 3 per shift . In early December I stopped working worrying about what damage the tylenol was doing. I have seen chiropractors,physiotherapists,post concussion specialists as well as a neurologist and have been off work since December 2016 . Is there an answer to my problem?

Hello, my son, age 24, was assaulted three weeks ago and suffered blunt trauma to his eye. He has had two surgeries since, most recently last Wed. He was taking 40 mg of prednisone prior to the surgery and 60 mg. of percocet for pain pre-and post-surgery. After the surgery, his eye doctor said to taper off the prednisone over four days (20, 10, 10, 10 mg.). He has felt bad for three days...headaches, fatigue, etc. Could it be prednisone withdrawl? Rebound headaches? He is trying not to take the percocet for fear of the latter and is trying extra strength tylenol instead.

2 or 3 weeks ago I got hit hard in the head with a phone by someone on the side of my head by my eyebrow on the left, and it turned into a hickey instantly i put ice on it when i got home and the pain was bad all over my head in it and it would be so hard to go to sleep because of the pain it was just throbbing in the back and real bad all over and i would wake up in the middle of the nights and start to wake up earlier at 7 am and I usually wake up at 10 am or 11 am But a week later the pain stopped, where it was hard for me to lay down and go to sleep and i stopped waking up early, but I still have headaches daily, and i stop waking up in the middle of the nights and early. pain medicine doesnt work, it doesnt just hurt in that spot where i hit it, It hurts all over my head
