Hi — I suffered...

Hi — I suffered a concussion Saturday night and blacked out for a few seconds. I have since been diagnosed with post concussion syndrome. My ears feel stuffed and occasionally bother me but I can hear ok. I have an appointment with neurologist Tuesday (GP diagnosed the post concussive) but is this ear thing part of the syndrome? I hit face first and broke my elbow as well. I tripped on the sidewalk. I’m 62. Female. Otherwise healthy.

Doctor's Assistant: When did the break begin? Have you used any medication for it?

Fell Saturday night. Started experiencing concussive symptoms Thursday. Headache, dizzy, fatigue. The pain has been manageable. I have been taking occasional Tylenol

Doctor's Assistant: Have you used anything besides Tylenol for this?

No

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hypothyroid which is controlled. On Synthroid. Nothing else

Also had 2 ct scans. No bleeding. All clear

Traumatic Brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe (complicated).

It appears that you had mild traumatic brain injury (concussion) and the symptoms Post-Concussion include speech, balance, visual, memory, or emotional problems).

Its very reassuring that CT scans on two occasions were normal, therefore, this ear problem also is part of concussion syndrome, and as other symptoms will improve gradually, this will also settle down with passage of time.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
