Comment from: Nasar khan, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: June 12

I was hit by a motorcycle on a road and I couldn't remember what happened afterwards. My Friends told me I fell down on my back and my head hit the road where I went unconscious. I believe I was in coma for an hour or more and had blood vomiting cycles for days. Now it is more than 4 years since that injury and I believe I experience mood swings as my social circle complains frequently, and lack of concentration and motivation, lethargy and most notably aggression.

He is now seeing psychedelic signs and double vision, I am so worried that it is delayed symptom of brain injury.
