Thanks for getting back so quickly. His GP is aware he was referred but, not about his bad experience. He is going to try and report it.
He hasn't tried any medication and wants to try and avoid that if possible. For him it is the idea that if he's damaged his brain at all then he can't go on. Until he is convinced that he hasn't damaged his brain then I feel like even medication won't resolve this issue, if that makes sense?
Thank you so much for your reply. I will try and persuade him to go back to the GP, but it's hard as he feels so ashamed of himself.
This might seem like a silly question but is it possible to go on the SSRI antidepressants for a little while and then be able to stop taking them or do people tend to become reliant on them?
Are there any concussion experts that you would recommend that I might be able to contact online?
I think if he understood more about the forces often involved in concussions compared to just glancing the top of your forehead as well as the physics in terms of the movement of the head then that might help as well. it didn't even stop him in his tracks, it just clipped the top of his scalp and was very painful. Do you know of any books, websites or articles that might explain these things?
Thank you for all your help. I will try and persuade him to take your advice. Also thank you for the article.
All the best
