Default Am I in the right place for questions/support for CTE?

Hello. I am looking for a support/information connection regarding my diagnosis of CTE. Confused as I try to navigate this group. Could anyone point me to where I can get the most CTE info/support? Thanks a lot!

Hi npragamer

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

As far as CTE is concerned the TBI/PCS forum (https://www.neurotalk.org/traumatic-...sion-syndrome/) is worth checking out.

Apart from that the Search command (https://www.neurotalk.org/search.php) will help you to find threads in which it has been discussed.

Best wishes.

Thank you so very much! I will check those links out. I am in year 7 after my 12th and most serious head injury and without a neurologist at this time so am trying to figure out what is just getting older (I am 63) and what problems are the progression of my CTE issues. I will haunt your forum also as it appears some of the neuro issues that accompany the progression of my CTE are discussed in the few posts I have looked at. Thanks again for the direction, it really helps!

Not sure CTE is really correct, MTBI is more accurate and diagnosable...CTE is only determent after death and an autopsy of the brain..Side effect of both are very close, and usually CTE is after a long period of time and the side effects start to happen.....MTBI, happens right after incident.

Not trying to split hairs, I just think you find out more using MTBI.
