Default Severe Sensitivity to Movement at Age 20 after Multiple Concussions

Hey guys, this is my first post on the forum just joined today. I guess ill jump right into it, in 8th grade when i was 13 I got a skull fracture/TBI (no coma) was in the hospital for about 5 days. Was rough for the few months after but eventually I returned to what I thought was normal.

Didn't have any problems with my head until I got my last concussion in December 2015 (I was 19 at the time), got jumped in Long Beach, knocked out cold, and was kicked in the head and bludgeoned on the asphalt for about 10 minutes afterwards. I was devastated when I woke up in the ER at 4 am the next morning, I knew my life was changed forever. For the next year after that i tried to really take it easy, and i noticed that whenever I moved my head even slightly fast I would feel like I could literally feel my brain moving around in my head.

I've hit some bad luck recently, fell down a couple of times in last few months and had a candle stick fall on my head. At this point I am living in a state of chronic stress and fear, it feels like the sensitivity to movement has gotten worse, whenever i hit a bump in the car my ears will turn red, eyes bloodshot, vision blurred and get a feeling like i just got jarred, I literally have to walk so slow and with padded cushions in my shoes because I literally feel the impact in my head if I take a full weight step, and it is super noticeable if I am barefoot.

Every time i move my head i seem to feel it, and it is not a good feeling. I am so worried about getting CTE and am literally doing everything I can do to prevent it (fish oil, magnesium, vitamin d3, lots of sleep). Do any of you have sensitivity to movement like me? would love to talk to some of you, thank you.
Sincerely, Trevor

Hi Trevor,

I'm sorry to hear that you've been injured. I've had brain surgery done twice
for epilepsy and my neurosurgeon told me it would take at least 1 full yr. to recover. The area of your brain in the back of your head may have been damaged and the reason I'm saying that is because of the vision problem you have been having. If you haven't had any therapy for this pain you should speak to a neurosurgeon. It sounds like you may have some spinal fluid that has come out of the brain and that in turn could be causing some of the problem. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Sue

With such a serious and tricky injury, I hope that you're seeing a doctor regularly.

My only other suggestion would be to consider taking anti-inflammatories, as an autoimmune process of inflammation can set in, in the wake of a serious injury to the brain. Curcumin C3 with bioperine, quercetin with bromelain, baicalin - things like that, may help to bring down neuro-inflammation.

I'm not a doctor; that's just something you may want to consider and discuss with whatever physician has you as a patient.
