Republicans Imply That Hillary Clinton Is Struggling On With A TBI

Posted by on in TBI
b2ap3_thumbnail_hillary-clinton.jpg * In 2012, Hillary Clinton fell, struck her head and suffered a concussion. Word from the Republican Party is the effects of the concussion have not abated and that she is exhibiting TBI symptoms. * The concussion Hillary Clinton suffered in December 2012 that led to a serious blood clot requiring hospitalization may also have caused her to suffer post-concussion syndrome, with symptoms including confusion, headaches and dizziness, warns a prominent Florida physician. * “The recent press reports about Hillary’s health point to the possibility she may yet be suffering the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome,” Dr. Daniel Kassicieh, D.O., a dual board certified osteopathic neurologist and a leading headache specialist who directs the Florida Headache and Movement Disorder Center in Sarasota, Florida, told WND in an exclusive telephone interview. “Electing someone to be president of the United States who has post-concussion syndrome is a real concern to me,” Kassicieh said. * After Clinton recovered sufficiently from the concussion and brain clot suffered in December 2012 to testify before Congress on Benghazi in January 2013, the New York Daily News reported she was wearing medically modified eyeglasses. Attached to each lens by transparent adhesive tape was a Fresnel prism designed to treat the double vision resulting from the concussion and blood clot. * “Brain damage is additive, so if Hillary Clinton were to suffer another falling-down incident resulting in a concussion, I would suspect the damage to her brain would be even more severe than suffered from the first concussion alone.” * Rudy Giuliani has joined the chorus of Donald Trump supporters peddling conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health. * “All you’ve got to do is go online,” Giuliani replied. “Go online and put down ‘Hillary Clinton illness’ and take a look at the videos for yourself.” * She has an entire media empire that constantly demonizes Donald Trump and fails to point out that she hasn’t had a press conference in 300 days — 200 days, 100 days, I don’t know how long — and fails to point out several signs of illness by her.” * Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) on Friday referred to Hillary Clinton as "mentally impaired." "You don't make fun of people who are impaired, have special needs," Gohmert said during his speech at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. * GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who Gohmert is backing, has made an issue of Clinton's health during the campaign, with aides pushing claims that she has a brain disease and focusing on the concussion she suffered while serving as secretary of State in 2012.

Eight years ago I suffered my accident....and after three weeks in a coma...I had to re-learn everything. How to walk, talk, eat, dress...reuse my weakened right side.

6 Year Old Girl Falls From Ferris Wheel - Suffers TBI

Posted by on in TBI
b2ap3_thumbnail_greene-county-fair-ferris-wheel.jpg * Dear Friends, many of our little ones love thrill rides. How do we as parents know the ride is safe? Are inspection records posted? Does the attendant look inolved or is he/she bored/asleep/texting? All we as parents can hope for, is that they are professionals in maintaining and caring for their rides. * Inspectors found a mechanical failure caused three children to plummet from a Ferris wheel at a Tennessee county fair, a police spokesman said Tuesday. * Greeneville police Capt. Tim Davis declined to go into specifics about the failure, saying the department is waiting on all the reports from the four inspectors reviewing the carnival ride. * Three girls -- two sisters ages 6 and 10 and an older teenager, 16 -- fell 35 to 40 feet after a basket overturned Monday on a Greene County Fair ride and dumped the occupants. * They were rushed to the Johnson City Medical Center. * Dr. J. Bracken Burns, a surgeon who is the hospital's director of trauma services, told reporters Tuesday the 6-year-old suffered a traumatic brain injury. (Cnn.com) Continue reading

New NFL Season Brings TBI Concerns From Paul Hornung (Helmets Didn't Protect Players In My Day) TBI Recovery Slim

Posted by on in TBI
b2ap3_thumbnail_paul-hornung.jpg Former Packers running back and Pro Football Hall of Famer Paul Hornung retired long before concussions were a major topic in the NFL, but, as we’ve learned over the years, not before they took a toll on the players who suffered them. In a lawsuit filed against helmet maker Riddell in Cook County (Illinois) Circuit Court on Thursday, Hornung says that the company failed to properly warn him that the company’s helmets “provided no protection” against concussions and other brain trauma. He is seeking damages of at least $50,000. “Prior to, during and after Paul Hornung’s N.F.L. football career, Riddell knew of the harmful long-term effects of brain traumas sustained by football players while wearing Riddell’s supposed protective equipment; however, it misrepresented and concealed these facts from Paul Hornung,” the complaint said, via the New York Times.

Texas Woman Recovers From Jaw Surgery And Wakes Up With "Foreign Accent Syndrome," Rare Type Of TBI Symptom

Posted by on in TBI
b2ap3_thumbnail_britishflag.jpg *Lisa Alamia was born and raised in Texas, but she speaks with a British accent. KHOU reported that the mother of three began speaking differently six months ago after undergoing jaw surgery to correct an overbite. *“People who don’t know me, they’re like, 'Hey, where are you from?'" Lisa Alamia, of Rosenberg, Tex., told the news station. “I’m from Rosenberg. They’re like, 'Where is that?' I’m like, 'Right here in Rosenberg.' 'Oh, you’re from here? How do you talk like that?' So that’s where the whole story comes up.” *KHOU reported that Alamia was diagnosed with foreign accent syndrome (FAS), a rare neurological disorder that scientists estimate has impacted fewer than 100 people in 100 years. According to researchers at The University of Texas (UT) at Dallas, FAS usually results from stroke or a traumatic injury that damages the brain. FAS may be marked by differences in timing, intonation and tongue placement, but speech remains comprehensible. No cause has been identified for the syndrome, according to UT at Dallas researchers.
