Post-Concussion Syndrome Accident Claims Attorneys in Florida
Post-concussion Syndrome is a condition that is described as a concussion that has long-term or lasting side effects. Concussions are a common injury that occurs during most car accidents. Typically, the symptoms and side effects disappear after two to three weeks. However, some concussions are so severe that the side effects of the head injury last indefinitely.
Emergency room physicians have difficulties diagnosing post-concussion syndrome since the signs and symptoms of the medical condition closely resemble other conditions. In other words, although the symptoms of a concussion are serious, these signs and symptoms can resemble other ailments. For example, headaches are a common symptom of a concussion.
Unfortunately, there is no medical test that can be used to diagnose post-concussion syndrome. Diagnosis is made through an epidemiological analysis and by ruling out other medical conditions. Patients are often given MRI and/or CT scans to uncover any abnormalities in the patient’s brain.
Tragically, there is no post-concussion syndrome cure, therefore medical doctors can only try to resolve the symptoms. For example, patients who suffer from debilitating headaches may not respond to over-the-counter medications. Therefore they would be prescribed prescription medications that address severe headaches. Moreover, patients suffering from depression or insomnia could receive sleep aids, antidepressants, therapy, and counseling.
Post-concussion syndrome is primarily treated simply with time and rest. Patients are advised to reduce stress, get plenty of sleep, and allow the brain to heal.
