Memory loss after car accident
I am a 27 year old I had a car accident at the end of 2005 and have 2 weeks of amnesia. I do not remember being in hospital at all. I suffered from a severe head trauma. I recently had a checkup with a doctor who told me the results of my CT Scan after my accident showed axial spaces frontally. I am seeing a neurologist in 10 days time, but desperately want to know what this means? What are the symptoms and what causes it? I was told that it could not be from my car accident? Is this something that I can fix? How does it effect me? I have been suffering with poor memory since the accident, would this be from the extra axial spaces? Would my head trauma from 4 years ago be causing my poor memory?

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Extra axial spaces are lesions within the skull but outside the brain. Damage from TBI can be focal, diffuse, confined to specific areas or distributed in a more general manner. In your case it is localized to frontal area. Any pressure on the frontal lobe can cause memory loss, mood changes etc. This is what could be happening in your case. You will need follow up CT scans and MRIs to know what exactly is a lesion—a chronic hematoma or what.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.  Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
