    Try neurofeedback, magnesium, neck exercise, and other

    Post-concussion syndrome is often accompanied by memory and concentration difficulties, as well as neck pain, dizziness with intolerance of rapid movements, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms. Low CSF pressure is relatively easy to diagnose - the headache is very positional - severe when standing and relieved by lying down with contrast MRI showing clear enhancement of the surface of the brain (meninges).
    As far as treatment, I haven't seen anyone mention biofeedback or a better version of it, neurofeedback. Magnesium, vitamin B12, and other supplements can also help. If neck pain is present or dizziness is made worse by neck movements, isometric neck exercise can help - see how to do these: http://goo.gl/bRxcPz
    For dizziness, vestibular rehabilitation works for some, while for persistent headaches, Botox is very safe and effective - see what the procedure looks like: http://goo.gl/VisUJh
    Sometimes drugs are useful. Besides beta blockers, gabapentin (Neurontin) and nortriptyline (Pamelor) can also help.
