I’m writing this a little more than 2 months after I got a concussion from being bucked off.
I’m one of the lucky individuals who ended up with what’s called post concussion syndrome - where my symptoms are lasting longer than the typical 2 week time frame.
Im out of work on medical leave due to not being able to concentrate without my symptoms of dizziness and disorientation coming rushing back! I also can’t drive as my reaction time is slowed and the stimulation of it is too much to handle.
I feel like I’m starting to go insane!! I’m stuck in the house and can’t do much of anything. I start feeling better and try to do something normal like read a few pages in a book or do a puzzle and then bam I’m back to square one and it takes 3 days to recover!
Looking for some support and insight insight from anyone whose been in these shoes. How long until you were able to work? How about ride?
Anything you did that you felt helped? I currently put on an eye mask and put in ear plugs when I feel “concussiony” and it helps some.
Never did I think I’d still be this messed up nearly 2.5 months later!
