I was in a car accident in 1984. I suffered a TBI that put me in a coma for 11 days. It was mostly frontal lobe damage which I still suffer problems with. I am noticing the symptoms getting worse over the last year or so and now I have begun to shake from the inside out. I told this to a counselor recently and he said it may be anxiety. I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety in the past when there were family problems present. I am currently having relationship problems with my girlfriend that is very distressing to me. My question is do you think this could be anxiety coming back on me again?
