In the blink of an eye, Dr. Clark Elliot's life was turned upside down.
While waiting at a stoplight, he was rear-ended by a car. And, even though he was physically able to get out of his car, his brain was not working properly.
As Dr. Clark tells the story, he was repeatedly trying to show his drivers license to the other driver, and when the police officer on the scene was asking for his car insurance, he held it in his hand, unable to figure out how to extend his arm to give it to him.
He went to his class where he had an evening lecture but couldn't walk down stairs and couldn't find his car in the parking lot.
With your stress hormones and adrenaline skyrocketing, it can be hard to determine if something is seriously wrong or if you're just experiencing shock.
Months and eventually years went on with little things like putting shoes on the wrong feet and an inability to fully concentrate until Dr. Clark fully realized he had a problem. He had a concussion.

Listen in as Dr. Clark shares his personal story of how he suffered from a concussion, the not-so-noticeable symptoms he was experiencing, and what treatment options to use.
