On Saturday I went to the hair salon to get my hair done. The lady was being kind of rough with my head. She would slap the back of my head pretty hard every time she would brush it and the one time she hit the one side with the water hose when rinsing it. Ever since then I have been feeing strange. Really bad headache, tingling in arms and legs, extremely nauseous, and this overall fuzzy feeling of just not feeling right. I know these are general signs of a concussion but does that really sound possible from what happened?? I think it would be a good idea to let you know that I have previously suffered from 2 concussions that unfortunately lingered for quite some time and because of this suffer from PTSD. Any time someone touches my head I get kind of weird but never to the point of feeling like I have another one. I'm not sure if this just triggered my PTSD/Anxiety pretty bad or if something is actually going on. I also suffer from migraines (and recently came off of my medicine). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I would go to my parents, but unfortunately they don't take me seriously in these cases as I do seem to cry wolf every time something like this happens, but this time I can't get myself off of the couch and I feel so crappy. Thank you
lexielou03: For right now I would continue to do what you are just rest. One question in your post I think you said you stopped taking your Migraine medication many times I get rebound headaches for a week or two after I have stopped mine. Could this be possible. And then if this continues to bother you I think you should go see your doctor and let the doctor know. You need to either start to tell the person working on your hair don't be so hard on you. That you have problems with Migraines and have had several concussions And the person that worked on you last here laid you up for days.
Anyway, there is a known problem with the way people lay back in the chair and have there hair washed at these shops. That pretty much describes what you are saying!!! In fact some older woman have had types of strokes etc just after having their hair done in one of these sink's or had severe dizziness for a while so you are not the only one to complain about this you can check it out when you feel better to google it under several different terms or wording and see if you can find anything about it. I well bet you do. But for now you should continue to do what you are doing and if you are still having problems next week you should go in to see your doctor. good luck. I believe you Chuck1957
