Canadd/ld/adhd become a more probable concern with a series of concussion like head injuries w/ trauma. Stage 3 concussions, I've had 5 in within 4yrs?

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.
