Default PCS and commuting with trains, buses, cars etc

Hello,

This is my first post. To not be left alone with my questions that are unanswered I would like to seek help from others who are kind of specialists in this area and topic.

I'm currently a student who has to commute every day taking trains and buses for the most part and my curious question is if it can cause further damage to the brain or if it's okay. I've read from Mark in Idaho that when you enter rough and bumpy roads you should roll your shoulders forward and not be completely laid back on the seat.

Also, can stress cause further damage the brain as well? Life in general can be quite stressful along with school and I've been taking 7,5 grams of Omega 3's focused on DHA after listening to Dr Michael Lewis who treats concussion patients and have actually noticed benefits from that overtime. But the stress question I'm asking is something I associate with other symptoms that pop up that I didn't have before. I did have them to a degree before, like pain in my feet, but now I feel the pain remarkably often in my feet during my days.

Thanks in advance

I do not answer questions about "Can this cause damage? Can that cause damage?" "I'm worried about this." "I'm worried about that." Sorry, I refuse to play the anxiety game.

The experts know you treat the symptoms, not the event.

Stress can cause symptoms to be prolonged. Anxiety is a well known magnifier of symptoms. It can even cause symptoms to return. Many symptoms of anxiety overlap the symptoms of concussions.
