I was recently in an auto accident and suffered a head injury. It was diagnosed as TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). Since then I have suffered severe headaches, dizziness and vertigo to the point where I can't even get out of bed some days. Now for the past few months I have been having seizure-like spasms all over my body. At times it's my face, my arms, toes and legs. In my sleep it's even worse to the pt. that my husband says I flop up off the bed like a fish! I talk constantly in my sleep and always feel fatiqued. I recently had an MRI and an abnormal vein was discovered called Venus Angioma. Although VA is something I'm told happens from birth and could be the cause of my symptoms, I never had ANY of these symptoms until after my accident. Has anyone else had a TBI and VA, and if so was there any indication that the TBI triggered the symptoms sooner?
