Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question and welcome to EmpowHer! I am sorry to hear about your injury and hope you recover quickly. The symptoms of a concussion include headache, loss of consciousness at the time of injury, memory loss, dizziness, drowsiness, balance problems, sensitivity to light and nausea or vomiting. You may also be slow to respond to stimuli.

Concussions can cause swelling in the brain, brain injury and death. However, most concussions do not cause major injuries. You may have developed post-concussion syndrome, which is characterized by headaches and dizziness that lasts for weeks after injury. Most post-concussion syndrome symptoms clear up in less than 10 days, but it can persist for up to a year in extreme cases. If you suspect that you may have suffered a concussion, or have developed post-concussion syndrome, please visit the doctor immediately.

We want to know that you're ok. Please check back and let us know how you are doing.

Warm Wishes,
