The Mayo Clinic defines post-concussion syndrome as headaches and dizziness that last for weeks or months after the injury. You do not have to lose consciousness to sustain a concussion or post-concussion syndrome.
Common Causes of Concussion are blows to the head, striking of the head from a fall, and the jolt of sudden deceleration or acceleration from a vehicle crash.
Concussions are Common with more than 3 million cases per year in the United States and many others likely unreported or not diagnosed.
What Others Are Saying
There are many symptoms that occur as the result of a concussion and some of them may not appear for hours or days later. The injured person is, of course, well aware of the physical symptoms such pain, dizziness and vision problems. However, the injured person may not be aware of other symptoms such as their forgetfulness. In these situations, it can be helpful to have feedback from family members when giving your doctors the history and symptoms of your injury. There are many types of therapy including physical rehabilitation, neurological, cognitive, speech and language therapy. There also is ongoing research for improving diagnosis and treatment, so it is important to seek out medical professionals with brain injury experience.
To maximize your chances of recovery from a TBI and its symptoms such as headache, dizziness and difficulty concentrating and remembering it is important that you seek expert medical advice and that you be thoroughly tested, including neuropsychological testing when recommended.
