Dear customer, it is a pleasure to serve you. I want to tell you that what you are experiencing is a condition called traumatic brain injury with signs of neurological focalization that your doctor should assess in person. Usually, a blow to the head should not be worrying unless there are signs or symptoms such as those you are experiencing at this time, so your doctor should evaluate you in person again to perform a thorough physical examination from the neurological point of view and also a CT scan which will give us essential data on any type of neurovascular alteration at the brain level that may be triggering these symptoms you are experiencing.
