His name is Jim and in this eBook you will read his story. You will also learn about post-concussion syndrome — the term which applies to the 15 per cent of concussion sufferers who still have symptoms three months later.
This eBook will describe the constellation of symptoms that makes up post-concussion syndrome and how it can change the lives of post-concussion syndrome sufferers. It will also briefly describe where the medical community is with this. Finally, it will detail challenges post-concussion syndrome sufferers can have seeking help from the health care system. This eBook will not, however, provide advice on how to treat, or self-treat, post-concussion syndrome.
The information contained in this eBook pertains to adults only (i.e., those 18 years of age and over).
If you suffered a concussion more than three months ago and have symptoms that won’t go away, this eBook will let you know what to expect.
“Don’t give up but it’s going to be a long fight,” cautions Jim. “This may become your new reality.”
