"My concussion treatment at Portlaoise"

About: Midland Regional Hospital / Emergency department

(as the patient),

I had slipped on leaves while out running on a Friday night. I banged my head, by Sunday I couldn't stick the headache and ringing in my ears any longer. On the Sunday I went to midoc and was sent to A&E and advised to have a scan. The doctor tried convincing me I just fainted, wanted to know if when I'm running do I starve myself all day before the run, asked who lived with me at home. I told him my 14 year old daughter, and his advise was to have her watch me through the night in case I got worse! ! ! ! !
