Answer:

Catherine ,

your husband, according to the complaints, epidural or subdural hematoma, since it is at these kinds of hematomas is the availability of "lucid intervals" with a consequential increase in headaches.Unfortunately, you have not written, how long is diagnosed if it was done CT or MRI, has carried out whether any treatment.Therefore, I advise something concrete is very problematic.

If the hematoma is not very big, depending on the location, the patient is assigned to conservative treatment, but as a rule, it should be carried out in a hospital under the supervision of specialists.Appointment of corticosteroids and diuretics fits the state, but depending on the size and location of the hematoma only a doctor can give an overall assessment of the status and determine the method of treatment.Thus it is necessary to know the cause of the hematoma, as post-traumatic hematoma therapy differs from the treatment of intracerebral hematoma as a result of hemorrhage (stroke).

In your case, you can not postpone solution for tomorrow or hope for a "maybe", it is necessary as soon as possible to apply to a good neurologist, be patient and comply with all its recommendations.The recovery period after the hematoma can be quite lengthy.

The longer you doubt, look questionable outputs and save her husband's visit to the doctor-neurologist and rely on the advice of "knowing" amateurs, the more unpredictable and irreversible consequences might be.
