      • Prayers for the injured worker. Remember, “a bump to the head” is not just a bump. A concussion is a “process”, symptoms may not all be evident at once. Please be aware of any new symptoms that may arise in the next days, weeks. Unable to sleep, or oversleeping, irritable, noise in your head, overly emotional, uncontrollable crying, feeling in a fog, sensitivity to lights or sound, nausea, slurring words, unable to find words or any other unusual symptoms you don’t recognize. Best thing to do is rest in a dark, quiet room. Rest means rest !! Take time at home “resting”, “dont” return to work for at least 2 weeks. By then, you should know if other symptoms arising. Wondering if this hospital was able to provide the new test available to indicate a head injury is present? Very valuble, diagnostic test if symptoms persist. My name is Tina. I facilitate the Hernando County Concussion/ Traumatic Brain Injury Support Group. We meet at Bayfront Brooksville Enrichment Center. Leave a message. If your concerned, don’t wait to call us, we can help. I’m sure you’ll have questions that most doctors are unwilling or unable to answer. I’m a former City employee that sustained my brain injury on the job. Im here to help !
