After a car accident in 2008, I have had severe headaches, migraines, memory loss, and my balance is horrible. If I were pulled over and asked to "walk the line" I would fail.
My pain clinic doctor ordered a MRI of the brain due to my ongoing headaches (5 years after accident). I saw a neurologist for the results and he told me that I have white matter changes, but he didn't really explain it. I did my own research and found that my symptoms match white matter disease. White matter disease can be caused by a head injury or trauma such as an auto accident, and can result in total loss of balance and memory. There is no cure, but there are things that can be done to help.
So far my neurologist has only recommended giving up everything that might be causing the headaches; caffeine, Excedrin, Vicodin, ect.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
