post concussion
by: Anonymous

Almost 4 years ago I had a hit to the head, that left me suffering with long term effects. dizziness, daily headaches, confusion, irritability. I do not do well on conventional medication. The only way I found relief for my headaches was acupuncture. I have been receiving it for just over a year and originally started getting treatments weekly now I am at 1 time a month. This has also helped my concentration and comprehension - which also was affected by the hit.

Answer:

Although a bit rare, I wanted to comment that at times a severe head injury can result in headaches that are chronic. I have several patients in this category. Although TBI or traumatic brain injury is usually the result of several injuries, yes it can occur with one bad injury to the brain paryenchema (tissue). Best to get to a headache specialist and more and more of us are actually specializing in TBI. At the Dent Headache Center, where I work, we have now opened a TBI clinic in our Orchard Park, NY office.

a year after auto accident
by: Anonymous

I was involved in an auto accident over a year and half ago. I was stopped , the other driver hitme from behind on the left side. I hit my right side of my head, my neck whipped back and foward at a hard thrush.

I am experiencing migraine headaches at least 1 to 2 times a week. My doctor has given me 50mg of Imetrex it works but these headaches start on my left side neck ear. My MRI was negative .

I never had any symptoms prior to the accident. Will this heal?

I still have trouble on doing mental task . I also have trouble with my eyesite. I had my eyes checked as I am 47 years old . The eye glasses don"t work as my vision keeps changing. I seem to have the focus problem. Is this also from the head injury?
