Can concussion cause brain aneurysm?And 4 months after would complications show up by now?Have headaches 2mon,I worry its complication from concussion

The most common locations are the base of the skull and the pericallosal arteries along the falx cerebri.

Had a traffic related head trauma. No obvious damage. How much chance i may develop memory loss or brain fog?

Had a traffic related head trauma. No obvious damage.  How much chance i may develop memory loss or brain fog?

The chance is low: As long as you did not develop any bleeding inside your head, and as long as you do not have a history of repeated head injuries, a single head injury like this stands very little chance of getting you cognitive difficulties later on or any sort of brain fog. I would not spend time worrying about it. When i was a student i was honored to be able to study in the soviet union. I fondly remember the hospitality shown to us as a student group in the ukraine.Best wishes to you and your family in the upcoming holiday season. ...Read more

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

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. Severe psychological trauma does not cause these physical stigmata of brain injury. At this time we do not know the similarities and differences at the biochemical level. ...Read more

Can belly crunches damage back or cause hernia?

Acute stress due an incident, causes me serious stomach pains, mild dihorrea, &hypersomnia, any de-stress effort didn't do much, how can I cure GI problem?

Likely depression: One of the most common causes of hypersomnia is depression. However, 20% of people with depression also have sleep apnea and vice versa. I would recommend you see a psychiatrist for eval of your probable depression (90% of our serotonin is in our gut). Serotonin drugs are used to treat depression and often help the gut. See a GI doc if you have not yet, and a sleep doc as well to rule out apnea. ...Read more
