I was really stressed out and I did a really stressful movement and I felt pain in the left temple of my brain. Now I'm really moody and irritable and I can't think right I know I have brain damage makes me want to die.

You DO NOT have brain damage!!!  Brain damage doesn't just happen.  Believe me, I cracked my skull enough as a kid and I'm in my late 30s and perfectly fine. 

Think about babies and toddlers that hid their heads constantly…they're all fine.

It's almost if not impossible to get brain damage just by moving your head a certain way.

Could of easily been a pinched nerve. The more you believe you have brain damage the more you're going to stress out about it and even start believing you have all the symptoms until you eventually go to the doctor and they tell you you're fine.

I said it before and I will say it again...you do not have brain damage, you have health anxiety.  Please, please, PLEASE speak to a psychiatrist as soon as possible.  You need professional help to manage this and the sooner you get it the better you will feel.

I will not see a psychiatrist; I do not have the money nor the transportation, and my family disapproves. That's why I'm posting here instead.

You don't necessarily have to see a psych, many family Dr's can prescribe medicine to assist you.

We're happy to help you but you you need to listen to what we're telling you…not shoot us down at everything we say.

YOU DO NOT HAVE BRAIN DAMAGE!! You are scaring yourself into believing that you do. Try to relax friend and think about it logically. As others have said, it is mathematically impossible to just "get brain damage". My friend, I am guilty of over thinking the littlest things as well. Every palpitation, every single little pain in my chest I am CONVINCED that I am having a heart attack. In reality I am just having panic symptoms. Go to your doctor and make sure, it will also make you feel better to hear that you are perfectly fine.

Just remember, breathe and think positive. Positive thinking goes a LONG way. Peace and Prosperity Friend.

The only brain damage you have is thinking you got brain damage from moving your head  :spineyes:

"I will not see a psychiatrist; I do not have the money nor the transportation, and my family disapproves. That's why I'm posting here instead."

Why does your family disapprove?  I would think they would want you to get the help you need.  And when it comes to cost check out giveanhour.org  This is a community of docs and psychs that donate their time to help those who cannot otherwise afford care and many of them will do counseling over the telephone.

"We're happy to help you but you you need to listen to what we're telling you…not shoot us down at everything we say.  "

I agree with SoaringFalcon...We are all here to give and receive support, but when the person looking for support refuses to accept it and tells us we're all wrong it makes the whole thing futile.

An online support forum is not a substitute for professional help. Not remotely.

Once, I fell while ice-skating. I landed straight on my head.  Now I fear the development of concussion related encephalopathy. And sometimes I wonder if anxiety isn't a result of it.
