This question is not for a diagnosis of myself but rather my girlfriend. She is in basic training at this time. She informed me last night that she fell and hit her head. They determined she had a concussion but she informed me also that she had a seizure afterwards. I do not know the totality of the circumstances as of yet. I am requesting her to get a copy of all of her medical records so I can have a specialists look them over as I have problems trusting the medical staff of the armed forces. Can you shed any light on the severity of the correlation between head trauma/concussion/seizure?? If possible also give me some pointers as to what my next move may be?? Thank you in advance for your time and any assistance and direction you may be able to give.
Concussion is the simplest form of brain trauma. There are no organic damages to the brain in cases of concussion, only a temporary functional disorder. It is usually indicated with headache, amnesia for the causative event, temporary loss of or disturbed consciousness, nausea, dizziness, etc.
Symptoms tend to weaken and disappear in a few days.
Occurrence of new symptoms or worsening of the present ones indicates more severe trauma than a simple concussion. Seizure should be taken very seriously and further diagnostic procedures (MRI, EEGâ¦) are required to identify the exact cause.
I found some stories from people who received full recoveries from brain injuries. The video clip also expalins how anyone can fully recover. There is hope because of God's wonderful goodness.
