What Could Cause Pressure In The Head, Dizziness And Light-headedness After A Head Injury?

My son was hit in the rear in a car accident over a year and half. He is still suffering from pressure in the head, frontal lobe, sometimes dizziness and lightheaded, also has a feeling of foggy and dullness. He has been treated by physiotherapist but that has not helped. This is very difficult for him, and we have tried other avenues. We have an appt. scheduled with an Orthopedist who specializes in sports injuries, since he was a college athlete.

Hello,

Consult a neurosurgeon and plan for a CT head. We have to rule out possible causes like concussion which can happen after a trauma.

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

Take care
