Relapse TBI

About 2 and half years ago my sister was involved in a car accident which caused trauma to the head and she temporarily went insane. She went for treatment for about six months, taking medication and after she completed her treatment she was fully recovered, back to normal and returned to work. Recently she has no been herself, saying things that do not make sense and not able to sit in one place and compose her sentences properly. Is it possible she could have relapsed? She works very hard, stresses too much, does not at or sleep well. Could that also contribute to her recent behavior?

I am sorry to hear about your sister’s medical problems.  Yes, it is possible that the psychiatric condition caused by head injury has relapsed. She must go back to her doctor and get this re-evaluated. She may need to re-start the treatment.
Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
