Hi guys, my name is sherry and I am really impressed by this community, trying to solve each other's problems. So nice. :)

i have a bit of problem of my own and would be nice to share.

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident 3 years ago, stayed in the icu for 2 days, for I have hit my head while the car flipped over 3 times, and they said I have bled both internally and externally on my head.

Later, I took cat scan and mri and they said all the blood has been dried up and there is nothing wrong.

6 months later, I begin to get always sleepy, tired, especially when it's raining or gloomy wheather.

I still experience this problem, ever since, my mind is never clear and feel sleepy all the time. It's very hard concentrating and my memory isn't as good as before. I took blood tests and they say nothing is wrong.

It is very upsetting and frustrating, I thank god that i'm still alive, but I sure wish I had hit somewhere else but my head. :(

any ideas/comments/advice you could give me to solve this problem?

I will forever and eternally be grateful for anybody that helps me overcome this challenge.


Thank you so much for reading this far,

god bless,

sherry

Sounds like sleep apnea with the tiredness and headaches. Can you afford a sleep study?
I did and found out I had sleep apnea. Then I went to a ent doctor and found out I had large tonsils

Hi there! Your problem might be chronic fatigue syndrome, or it could be something to do with your accident(sort of like a post traumatic syndrome), or just a vitamin or nutrient that you are missing in your system, you should definitely talk to your Dr. About this.
I apologize, as I realize that this is an older post, hope that you are doing better now.
Good luck to you.

Sincerely,
sandy

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Your symptoms are consistent with PTSD.
You would need SSRI like flouxetine and psychotherapy sessions to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
