I was injured in Iraq in 2004-2006. In mid 2008 I realized that the head injuries I sustained in Iraq were more serious than I thought. I spent two years getting progressively worse. It started out with frustration, anger, and all the symptoms of PTSD. Then it got worse I showed signs of loss of cognitive functions, speech, I would sometimes fall over for no reason. In mid 2008 I had two brain surgeries where they placed a VP shunt. The pressure was 6 times higher than normal at the time of the surgery. Now all the pressure has been relieved but I think I still have a problem. Is it possible to have permeate damage from high ICP? I get angry a lot, not as bad but some. Im controlling, and I have a constant pain in my abdomen that no one seems to understand. Is it possible that I could have abdominal seizures from the years of pressure? Im at the point where I dont know what to do. I had a First Sergeant that had the same problem and ended up killing himself. I fly off the handle for no reason and honestly its killing my wife...I dont know what to do about it. If you can offer any advice please help.
