I had a TBI 8 years ago. Since then I have developed neuropathy, fibromyalgia and now most recently migraines. I have had a fall since my initial injury which I think was caused by the neuropathy as I have had huge issues with balance. Doctors asked me why I have balance issues but no one could make the connection. , I discovered I was not using my toes to walk or balance my body. I have seen a string of neurologists I have been told there is so much we don’t know about the brain. My level of brain function can decrease for no apparent reason and then return.
I have read recently about brain plasticity. It seem interesting as a treatment approach. Does anyone have any experience with that treatment approach. I have considered coming to Mayo but I do not have the support system needed to make the trip.
