    Previous Concussion Leading To CTE?

    I got a concussion November 2nd 2015 and I have been experiencing constant headaches and some other symptoms ever since. Recently some symptoms have been getting worse along with some new ones. I am concerned that it is something else especially since many of my symptoms fall into the same category. I'm not sure what to do, any advice would be welcome, and if you have any questions please reply.

    Frontal lobe injury

    My husband was injured at work years back with a frontal lobe injury. We were told he could have several issues. I never started noticing anything alarming until this last year. He just is not himself mentally, emotionally etc. What are things to watch for and what can be done to help him feel "normal" and help his symptoms?

    Help-160+ "head rushes" or "brain zaps" everyday!

    Hi Folks – I’m a 49 year old male and starting in May this year, I started experiencing some very weird “head rushes” or “head zaps” as I have seen other folks make reference to. I’m now 4 months in and they are continuing - getting worse and more frequent. I actually know exactly when I had the first one – I was on holidays and departing the hotel and I got this head rush that was very sharp and lasted only a few seconds. It felt like someone stuck a needle in my brain full of adrenaline. I could....

    Neurontin(Gabapentin) and Cipro

    Probably had a reaction to Cipro after major spine operation. Tendom damage to right thumb are and left elbow which required surgery. Have a bad sinus infection that no Penicillin drug will help. Doctor putting me on Cipro(have to take the chance). Since Gabapentin is for nerve damage and neuropathy what is the danger of taking to two together. Would think that the Gabapentin would perhaps offset any nerve damage from the Cipro. My doctor did not even know that Cipro has a FDA warning. Doctors prescribing....

    Carbon Monoxide exposure for a few hours

    It seems I have been exposed to some level of CO two days ago. I am currently driving through Mexico with my brother. We are in a 1985 Ford E-250 camper. While on the highway, there was a clog in the muffler and some fumes entered the vehicle. We kept driving (with the windows down) for several hours until we got the exhaust system serviced. Yesterday (24 hours after exposure) I was still feeling some symptoms. A "tension" like headache and was not clear headed. No nausea. No vomiting.....
