Head injury causing memory loss. Will I get it back?

Depends on severity. Memory loss from a head injury will not return. Some patients may have retrograde amnesia (loss of memory for incidents preceding the trauma) and some may have memory loss for events during and following the trauma. Neither will return. However, subsequent memory is usually normal.

Concussion. You probably suffered a concussion. With severe head trauma, diffuse axonal injury may lead to long lasting and sometimes subtle permanent cognitive impairment. Sometimes repeating a neuroimaging, like an mri, may be necessary. Stay in touch with your doctor so he could determine if further medical care is needed. Recovery may be slow and it may take up to three to six months in some cases.
