Normal: Glad your MRI was normal. This means no major structural problems. However, the brain is a massively electrical structure and head injury disrupts your wires. Expect symptoms for a week or two. Other variables to consider would be exposure to EMF and perhaps electrolyte problem. Low magnesium common.
