Concussions + meditation

First I would like to say this is my first post and I love this site. But I have a question for all of you…

This past summer I had experienced a concussion while snowboarding out in Oregon (yes, summer snowboarding!) but nobody saw it or knows how I fell and obviously I don’t know either. It was a pretty good concussion. From the way my helmet had broken it looked like I had fallen on the side of my head. It really bummed me out and actually had a large impact on my life. It made me afraid of getting hurt and hesitant on my snowboard. So the other night I was meditating and I felt this strange/tingly/itchy feeling come across my right cheekbone all the way to my ear. It seemed very familiar and I knew I couldn’t just itch or touch it. I decided that I wanted to make it go away just by thinking about it going away. The more and more I concentrated on it l, the more intense it became. I could feel the blood pulsing through my cheek as if my heart was located there. After some more focusing it finally lingered away and had a soothing sensation as it had left. Now today, I went snowboarding (i go everyday) and had one of the funnest and progressive times of my life. I felt like i really was in the moment just enjoying myself and mot being worried about fallin on my noggin again. Is there any possibility that the connection of making that sensation go away in my face be linked to me getting over my concussion?

Could be. Could be your mind focusing on the mental block you gave yourself, and the physical feeling was the manifestation of it leaving/no longer blocking you.
