It started with a hit to my head...
« on: February 11, 2014, 10:12:53 PM »
I hit my head months ago and haven't felt the same since.  I spent the next couple of days Googling for Concussion information only to find discouragement and fear in the lack of understanding on the subject.  The fact that I could have suffered a "brain injury" scared the hell out of me.  7 days after the trauma, I had a panic attack...I have no history of anxiety.

My DR and neurologist say I look fine neurologically, like I never hit my head.

Post-concussion syndrome is so horribly misunderstood that I can't stop from thinking about it.  I feel like the first 1-2 weeks of research really made a negative impression on me.

Does this sound like hypochondria?

Welcome to anxietyzone. If their was an issue, the doctors would have done more testing. My doctor
told me never to surf the net, as in many situations, they paint the worst possible outcome.
