Hello Michelle0173,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us with your question.

I am hoping that you are under the care of a neurologist and are being worked up for the cause of the seizures. That is most important.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head or body, a fall, or another injury that jars or shakes the brain inside the skull.

It is not always easy to know if someone has a concussion. You don't have to pass out (lose consciousness) to have a concussion.

Symptoms of a concussion range from mild to severe and can last for hours, days, weeks, or even months.

Symptoms of a concussion fit into four main categories:

Thinking and remembering such as not thinking clearly, not able to concentrate, not being able to remember new information.

Physical, including nausea and vomiting, headaches, blurry vision, balance problems, fatigue

Emotional and mood such as easily upset or angered, sad, nervous or anxious, more emotional than normal

Sleep changes including sleeping more or sleeping less or having trouble falling asleep

Michelle0713, since you are having some of these symptoms, please contact your physician.
