As far as short term memory and learning new things and remembering what people say is definitely a struggle. Sometimes I will listen to my tutor talk for about 5 minutes and when I think back and its really rough to even recall anything she said. Sometimes I will walk to a part in the house and it will take me about 10 seconds to even remember why I went there. As far as speech I can't sound normal when I am on my A game, but if I am tired I will most likely slur a bit if I'm not paying attention to it. I was hoping the hyperbaric treatments would help heal whatever is making my head so sensitive. I know last night I was walking pretty quickly and tripped on a comforter, granted I didn't let myself fall but when I stumbled my head went forward and jerked it up as I caught my fall and I had to run it out for about 5 heavy steps because my body had so much moment from the trip. I wonder if those big impacts from my feet pounding n the ground did damage to my brain? I am not obsessing but am genuinely concerned. After it happened I had a weird pressure on the back of my head, luckily I didn't get a headache and was able to go to sleep about an hour later. Definitely felt a bit word after it happened I definitely could feel some pressure on my head directly after that stumbling instance happened. Is it possible this did any damage or could make me any more sensitive to movement? Also just went to Whole Foods and picked up the 365 everyday value vitamin b50 complex (thank you mark for recommending the b50) . Also is it bad to smoke a hit of medical marijuana before bed? I don't use lighter fluid I light the bowls with organic hemp rope, was wondering what you guys thought of that. And to Nick I would say keep your positive attitude and time is definitely on your side. My speech and cognition have seemed to improve a lot since I was when I was 5 months out from getting my last concussion in 2015. I also recommend you use this magnesium I just got, guy at the HBOT place told me it is one of the only patented magnesiums that is able to cross the blood brain barrier, it is called XYMOGEN OPTIMAG NEURO. Literally seems to be helping sooo much with headaches, basically have none now that I'm off the antibiotics and am taking that magnesium daily. Love hearing from you guys, were all in this together. You are all in my prayers.

Sincerely, Your Friend Trevor
Trevor,

I see You mentioned medical marijuana? I myself have actually begun experimenting with High CBD/low THC marijuana concentrate (62% CBD, 3% THC) through a vaporizer I acquired at a dispensary. The vaporizer and concentrate is nice because it eliminates the nasty chemicals. No psychoactive effect either due to low THC levels.

How has your MMJ experiebce veen? What kind of strains do you use?

Actually haven't smoked last couple of days, seems whenever I smoke at night I make some type of quick movement or trip up a little bit and run into a slight setback. But when I smoked I would smoke indica only or at least indicate dominant hybrid; king Louis OG, sky walker OG, Girl Scout cookies were some strains I would often get. How are things going with you? Sorry haven't been on forums in last couple days been struggling to get solid sleep gonna try to get the sleep cycle back on track to tonight, I hope things are going good with you man.

Sincerely, Trevor

Everything I have read points to CBD as the beneficial part of cannabis when one suffers from PCS with THC only beneficial in micro doses. Indica is THC dominant. Few indica strains have a good ratio of CBD to THC. 5:2 would be a starting point but 20:1 CBD to THC is considered better. Remedy, at 15:1 is helpful for some.

Don't expect to find lots of CBD dominant strains in most dispensaries.

Does anyone know anything about nocturnal seizures? I've been having weird occurrences in my sleep.

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and I felt very dizzy and all my muscles felt exhausted. I also felt like my feet/leg muscles were spasming a bit and I couldn't control it. I tried to get up to use the bathroom and everything felt very, very spinny and nauseous. Vertigo?

Today I don't feel spinny anymore, but it was pretty frightening.

I also often have sleep paralysis. I've never had that in my life till this last concussion. I read this can occasionally indicate nocturnal seizures.

Sometimes I also awake from sudden neck spasms in my sleep

It's probably nothing, but I'm a little spooked.

Have you been researching these issues online ?

I had some of these odd symptoms that I resolved by learning a straighter sleep posture. No thick pillows. No head twisted during sleep.

Trying to research it, but I find a million different answers.

I've begun using this fancy pillow for my neck that has improved my sleeping a bit/helps my neck posture a lot. Still have weird occurrences though

Researching health issues online often leads to an over-exaggerated belief that one is experiencing those symptoms.

Buying a fancy pillow means nothing if it is not doing what your head and neck needs.

What does this fancy pillow do ?

What position do you sleep in ? Back, side, front.... head straight forward, tilted to the side, tilted forward ?

this similar to what it looks like.

I sleep on my side (head propped on one of the pillow ledges). I have a bad habit of leaning my head forward when I do. Been working on that

Nick,

My sleep got real different after my accident...nightmares, wild dreams, loss of sleep and eventually turned into crazy fear of even laying down.

Eventually it all smoothed out and back to normal. Try your best to stay calm about it.
