D1 hockey player, desperetly needs advice/treatment

I was injured in a hockey game vs. Yale on January 4, 2007. I finished my shift after the hit, rememembering exactly what happened. Sitting in the bench, my trainer came over to treet the cut from my chin that was bleeding, but i immediatly asked for tylanol for the most painful headache I have ever had. I comtinued to play the rest of the game with very short breath, nausious stomach and the feeling of being injured baddly. I then took another hit giving me more stars while playing.

After a few months my doctors diagnosed me with PCS (post-concuccion syndrom). All of my symptoms fit the diagnoses accept that my neck and beck pain resulting from the hit, has left me on bed rest for the last year.

Prior to the hit, I have had 10 years of chronic mid-back and neck pain. I have seen 9 chropractors, and other doctors with no results. My athletic doctor has me believing all of my symptoms are a result from the PCS, and believes there is no coorelation to my previous neck/back myofassia pain.

I NEED HELP! I have had to quite my senior hockey season, I live in pain all day everyday. Should I go above my doctors at school and search for a doctor who is cabable of treating me?


  • I'm sorry you're having pain right now. Are your parents in the picture? Perhaps they're insurance would cover a new Dr. to help you. Do you have a pain management Dr? Your Dr. should be helping you get pain relief. This forum is not to give medical advice we can only share stories. I had a referral to an orthopedic surgeon and pain management Dr. to help my pain with injections. I hope you get the help you need and have less pain. Take care and keep us posted.

    it is hard to come to the conclusion that all of your problems are a result of pcs. during the course of my football days, i had over 9 concussions. what that left me with is frequent headaches and perhaps a little flaky.
    seriously, i believe you should see a doctor or specialist to identify what are you back/cervical problems. i would want to know what the exact problem is and what can be done about it.
