I have noticed that my high and low points are more noticeable after my TBI. As a result, a rather small health issue seems to trigger other parts of the body. For example, if my leg is sore, it triggers my headache and then, it triggers an upset stomach. Is that common to people with TBIs or is it unique to me?
You might try this recent article from the National Health Service in England that you may find interesting:
Bottom line: The brain rules the whole body, and the effect of a brain injury will depend on:
- the location of the injury
- the severity of the injury
- the type of injury
One thing for sure: you aren’t alone.
