Concussion: Mask Issue Help

Hey guys I could really use some help from the paintball community right now,

My name is Reagan, I'm 17 and I've been playing paintball for 7 years; wouldn't give it up for anything else in the world. So about a year ago I received 2 concussions within 24 hours (Saturday and Sunday) while playing in a paintball tourney. I got hit 2x right on top of each other above my left temple and once in the back of the head where the squishy part is in the middle. Anyways I've been going to many different therapies and have improved tremendously over time. I'm just now starting to try to go back to school one class at a time for the second attempt and the Doc has cleared me to go back to paintball; however, I have to have a full helmet paintball mask that he approves of. I've searched and purchased multiple masks and so far none have fit my ginormous head.

What I'm trying to say is, do ya'll have any ideas or suggestions?

Does anybody make customizable paintball masks?

If ya'll have any connections with paintball companies or helmet producing companies (like football, baseball, etc...) could ya'll help me get in contact with them?

I don't know what to do! I feel like there's nothing out there and that I'm going to have to quit paintball! It even makes me more miserable with the season about to start up in a couple of weeks!

Thanks

Hey,
That's a sad tale, Im sorry to hear that.

Have you considered the JT Flex8, full coverage? or what about adding a full-shell, tactical helmet and using that with a mask to have full-coverage?

What have you tried?

Yes, I have tried all the paintball helmets except the Gen X Tactical helmet and the Hundredth Monkey Turtle Cap. I've ordered both of them and they should be here before this weekend.
Hopefully they get here before the weekend and I can play me some paintball!!!

Wear the Turtle cap and put a beanie on over it, or a sock hat. You probably wouldn't even know if you got hit in the head with those combined.. But the turtle cap is quite thick as is. Just not sure if it would cover far enough down the back of your head.
