Concussion: A thorough neuropsychological testing will be of great benefit. If your insurance can cover this seek out such a consultation.

Rest and more rest: Concussion results in cellular level damage to parts of the brain. While refraining from active physical endeavors is obviously needed, many do not realize that you must also refrain from cognitive exertion or risk prolonging or preventing recovery.

Treatment available: Since yoiur symptoms have gone on so long, it is time to consider treatment that might help. For instance Amantadine has been shown to significantly improve this condition. Consult a neurologist.
