My Mood: Please help me with your knowledge ....
Question Please help me with your knowledge ....

I usually post in the TBI section on this site, but I think for this issue I must ask for your help.

Since my accident (please read below), I have suffered 10 collapses since July 2012. 6 required hospitalisation.

The first time I had a pain in the back of my head so bad I actually called my parents and told them I thought I was dying. I stopped being able to speak so an ambulance was called and I spent a couple of days in hospital CT clear so sent home.

The next time there was no pain at the start, I just felt strange and disoriented. Someone saw me ( I was in a shopping center) and they called an ambulance. I didn't know where I was or my name or the day and couldn't speak for 2 hrs.

This sort of thing has happened over again and doctors are looking at epilepsy, brain trauma etc but I feel from what I have read these are TIA's. The paramedics have all said the same.

Who can diagnose these?
How?
Can I prevent them?

Many thanks

I am a 36 yr old female who has played football, as a hobby, for 13 yrs. In July 2012, during a game I was slammed to the floor by two angry guys who hit into me so hard that one of them broke their ribs.
This knocked me back onto hard ground leaving me unconscious. I awoke to chronic head and neck pain, sickness and the inability to see or balance.
The paramedics made me walk to the ambulance, instead of placing me on a spinal board, where I was taken to the ER. I was hospitalised with suspected brain hemorrhage for 1 week, then on complete bed rest for 1 month, in a wheelchair for 2 months.

I have been left with PCS, moderate constant head pain, little short term memory, no memory of the accident, balance and sight problems, depression and exhaustion.
The worst problem is collapsing regularly. This has finally been diagnosed as Hemiplegic Migraines , these cause my brain to regularly shut down when I am tired and I then feel the full effects of a stroke (without the bleed on the brain!!) of which the symptoms last 2-4 days.
I have had 6 CT's, 2 MRI's and am under 3 specialists.

I believe everyday is one more towards improvement. Mainly I believe in the power of acceptance not the weakness of complacency or resignation.
