Concussions And Thyroid
I have hashimoto thyroidism, pituitary tumor, seizures, lesion on my brain and had multiple concussions. My calves are hurting bad what could this be?
Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience. ...Read more
Have all the symptoms of a concussion now but I didn't bump my head recently. However I have had numerous concussions in my life. What's going on?
I had a heavy period for 3 days then normal for one, but it stopped for one day then came back the next. I have a concussion and therefore am on meds.
Normal?: It can be normal to have bleeding stop for one day in period and then continue. A heavy period, soaking pads or tampons in 2-3 hours or less, or passing clots, may not be normal. Common reasons for heavy bleeding in young women are thyroid problems, von willebrand syndrome, or extremes of weight (thin/heavy). ...Read more
Motorcycle accident & ctscan 3wks ago was wearing helmet plus lost consciousness hit head front & back still symptoms of concussion. Is this normal?
Yes: The symptoms of concussion may last up to 6 months. You may experience fatigue, difficulties with concentration, headaches, difficulties with sleep, dizziness. Just try to "listen" to your body and get enough rest. If you feel you have to take a nap during the day - it is fine. Make sure that there is no other issues, f.E anemia, thyroid gland issues... Do not assign all to concussion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

MVP? TBI ?: You are on inderal LA and they've looked at thyroid function. Can I assume you have mitral valve prolapse? Problems due to even minor head trauma can be significant (with almost always a negative CT) If you get worse let them know. They will look for a slow bleed. If you are upset about all this and have MVP you will get chest pain. In the mean time you need to see a concussion specialist. ...Read more
