You might want to think about contacting your local chapter of the Brain Injury Association and ask if they can recommend doctors/specialists. The ones who involve themselves with Brain Injury Associations are more understanding and compassionate. I found my marvelous neuro-psychologist through my province's brain injury group.

Axons are incredibly tiny. Trying to image brain damage with an MRI is like trying get a detailed look at a distant galaxy with a pair of kid's binoculars.

When TBI patients' brains are examined after death, a lot of damage is found. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/18/sp...oncussion.html

I guess none of us can really know what our cognitive future holds. As a general rule, folks who have maintained multiple TBIs seem to be at higher risk of dementia than those of us who have sustained single injuries - even serious ones. The impact from each successive injury seems more severe.

I feel for folks, like Mark, who are dealing with the fallout of several TBIs.

I hear ya. I happen to suffer from a concussion and the van a very bad acquired brain injury from a doctor giving me a very Very Bad medications in combination. If any of you know anything about pain killers he gave me oxycodone and subutex and told me to take them together which course precipitated withdrawal andr damage to my brain. Subutext is used for withdrawal symptoms and is not to be taking within 12 hours of oxycodone. I was never addicted to anything this guy just gave them both to me for pain because he was semile and I lost the case against him. Because he was a rich New York City doctor

My idiot neurologist took me off Lyrica cold turkey. He could have killed me. Stupid, arrogant old fool.
