Brain Injuries migraines, dizzy spells, speech problems

Hello. My fiance was in a car accident about a year and a half ago. He did have some brain damage but the Dr.s said he would be fine eventually. Recently, he has been having severe migraines, dizzy spells, time lapses where he cant remember what he's been going. As well as speech problems, he stutters and cant remember words. He has been mixing up his numbers and letters as well. We plan on going to a DR next week but I was hoping to get some ideas before we go. Can anyone help us??

When I was in a car accident in 2005 and had a head injury I experienced similar problems: muscle spasms, migraines, short term memory loss, mixing up dates and words, fatigue. I recommend seeing a neurologist over a primary care doctor. Of course you insurance may require you to get a referral to see a neurologist who will run appropriate test to figure out what is going on.
