My sister sustained a head injury after falling and hitting her head on the bathtub. It's been at least 5-6 wks. After this occurred! she can't remember anyone, and says she can't read or write! I find it strange and a little odd that she hasn't received any type of therapy/medical treatment for this. Is this common behavior? Her symptoms haven't improved at all.. Her husband states that he gives her medication but it doesn't seem to be working. I would greatly appreciate some advice regarding my sisters condition. Thank you. -Alison
