Nerve damage

Oct 19, 2014 2:04 PM

I had my neck broken C4 and C5 in an assault, then 6 weeks later attack by a gang member, he kicked me to the ground fracturing ribs and damaging the thoracic area of my spine. I've also surgery on the base of my spine from a ruptured and prolapsed disk. since the assaults in 2012. I also have congenital Hydrocephalus, for which I've had 28 revisions.

In the past year I've started having convulsions and collapses, been off work since March. the doctors have all but given up. Any thoughts, as to what might be causing the convolutions and weakness and collapses.

Have you seen specialists like a Neurosurgeon or Neurologist? If not then I would recommend you do that as soon as possible.

Like CACampbell said, see a Neurologist first. If that doesn't get answers ask to be referred to a specialty hospital, like the Mayo Clinic or John's Hopkins. Don't give up looking. Like most of us our answers took years to find the right diagnosis, and multiple ones at that. Hugs love & prayers they come sooner for you! šŸ™‚ā¤šŸ™šŸŒ¼.
