Nerves in head react to sun and iritate my head making me have mood changes also my personality changed had head trauma no sign of brain injury in mri?

Question is ?: Significant head trauma can possibly cause personality changes. I've never heard of sun- reactions initiating lasting mood changes. Perhaps your changes in mood are only created by worry. Best way to find out is to seek psychological or psychiatric help. At 19 you are vulnerable to worry and anxiety. Please seek help to alleviate your concerns which may have no basis in reality. You're normal. ...Read more

How do you identify brain damage from head trauma or from a concussion, a year after the fact?

How do you identify brain damage from head trauma or from a concussion, a year after the fact?

Possibly by MRIs: Mri technology has advanced dramatically in the last few years. Specialized sequences looking at the white fiber tracts or looking for signs of micro hemorrhages (t2-star sequences) are useful for detecting abnormalities. If the head injury is more severe clinically, there are usually more findings on mri. These may be followed over time with serial MRI scans to see if they hopefully improve. ...Read more

I meant to say, sorry, does a brain injury occur only after physical or can it happen after severe pyschological trauma ?

Thanks for clarifica: As we currently define brain injury based on the pathological findings which can include scar (gliosis), atrophy (encephalomalacia), diffuse axonal injury-this is limited to physical injury.

How long after my8month lo fell from3ft and banged head do I need to worry about head/brain injury?(she was taken to a&e and checked but i still worry

Depends: What surface did the child land on? Was there any clinical evidence of a concussion? Did the checking out include a ct? If no concussion then there should not be a long term risk. In the future, the less trauma to the head, the better. (that's why i wouldn't let my son play high school football!). ...Read more
