Common Questions and Answers about Concussion grade 3

concussion

Thank you for your helpful insight. I read the Vienna Guidelines and also thought his concussion was a grade 3 but I'm not a neurosurgeon so I was guessing there was something else the doctors were going off of. I am keeping an eye on him for any changes as you listed. After I posted my first comment I saw a big change in him. He got out of bed & started interacting & is sleeping less. Again, thank you for replying so quickly & for your insight.
i Went to a neurologist and he dignosed me with Post concussion syndrom. i hit my head pretty good, 1 the whip lash (i cant remember if i hit it on anything in my car) but as i was exiting to see what he did i smacked it on the metal bar getting out and then when the paramedic arrived i was laying in my car as they got me out the car he was holding my neck up right and i smacked it again on the metal bar getting out the car again.
The professional sports medicine physician's commonly class them as grade 1, grade 2 or grade 3. This means that there can be a broad range of outcomes. The incident that caused the concussion can often be accompanied by structural damage to brain tissue, as well as the rupture of blood vessels, which can cause a bleed. This is what Drnee refers to as underlying brain injury. The bleed may be slow and continue for several days, or even weeks.
It sounds like your daughter did lose consciousness, and if this the case, her episode would be analogous to a grade III concussion. For grade III concussion sustained by athletes during sports, it is generally recommended that the athlete not return to sports for 2 weeks, because another concussion should it occur would certainly increase the risk of more serious consequences.
I was in a MVA Sept 2007. I have a grade 3 concussion. I have now had PCS for 6 months. Dr's say i'm looking at 1 year before i recover. I have major sleep problems, dizziness,nausea,fatigue,bad balance,headaches,memory problems,no sense of smell, sensitivity to light and noise, very poor concentration. Everything is a huge effort. I try pushing myself but that only has made me so frusturated I turn into a monster! I'm looking for some advice from someone who has gone through this.
The American Academy of Neurology scale is graded on a scale of 1 to 3, where grade 3 has any loss of consciousness. Grade 2 is with any symptoms lasting more than 15 minutes. If there is any loss of consciousness or alteration in mentation or neurological deficit, labeling the injury as traumatic brain injury would also be appropriate. It is common for persistent headaches to occur after traumatic brain injury such as from a concussion.

Given your LOC of 30 minutes and amneisa (PTA) suggest a more significant injury, most likely a grade 3 concussion, that being if your neuroimaging was clear. The symptoms you described are consisent with mild TBI. Most patients we suggest to limit your activities, cognitive and physical, as they may worsen symptoms and prolong recovery. Increase activites as tolerated. If possilbe look for a neuropsychologist in your area.
By the third day I had all the symptoms of a concussion plus severe tremors that would last for 3 to 4 minutes, went to the emergency room, had a CT scan and it was normal. It took me 3 months to feel better. I resumed my spinning classes even though I had felt tired and not my usual self. 5 months later, while I was talking a walk at the waterfront, and while sitting down on a high backed bench the back of my head lightly hit the back of the bench.
As you know, a "Grade 1" concussion is the mildest category. That being said,m there is no such thing as a "harmless concussion", and in the final analysis Lacross is a meaningless activity. Missing a season is not worth a lifetime of problems. I am somewhat concerned he did not have an MRI, and insofar as school authorities are mandated to pick-up-the-bill, this non-invasive test should have been provided.

My fourteen year old son experienced a grade 3 concussion last summer. He is currenlty on Elavil and topamax and adderall. He is being weaned off of the elavil.

9-10months ago) after hitting the back of my head directly below the bottem of my helmetly Doctors said it was a grade 2/3 concussion.

I suffered from yet another concussion in Oct 2012. When I flew to a lower altitude 3 weeks later I had no problems adjusting to the change in air pressure however upon returning to 5000 ft above sea level I could not function for days after. The same thing happened when I flew again 1 month later. I completely believe that a change in air pressure from flying and even every day weather changes affects me. Sunny high pressure days were the worst.
My dtr had been diagnosed with a avm since 3rd grade she is now 22 yrs old. She has fainted in the past 3 times.The last time was 5 yrs ago. The other day she fainted in a tanning salon and hit her head and got a concussion and preceded to have a seizure. Do you think these fainting spells and now seizure is related to having anything to do with the avm. She is schd to see a neurosurgeon on Monday. I am wondering if surgery has to be done immediatley to remove the avm or can you just watch.

I fell down some stairs in September 2007. I suffered a Grade 3 concussion, orbital floor fracture and complex zygomatic arch fracture. I have had memory issues, headaches, mood swings, irritability, overload issues. Now....I also have a history of depression. I know some of the symtoms overlap. I went to a NeuroPsych who evaluated me for TBI. After $800 and over 4 months waiting for results....I'm "normal". No depression, no TBI. So where do I turn now???
In those days you were hospitalized for a grade 3 concussion (closed head injury with loss of consciousness.) When I was 17 I was assaulted and hit in the head with a steel pipe. (Hey, I grew up in Manhattan!) I don't recall any symptoms after this. I was around 40, two years after finishing my residency. I began experiencing short term memory loss, sleep disturbance, and intermittent depression. I had neuropsych testing which documented this.
He played high school and college football and substained a concussion playing football while in 10th grade. He also broke his ankle playing college footbal which resulted in surgery and a metal plate was fused to his bones to repair his broken ankle. ER doctors think he had a seizure @ the wheel of the car. I am totally uninformed, am not a doctor and don't think he has eplipesy or seizures. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I cough up about a teaspoon or less of mucus each day. (Sometime between 3/25 and 4/6 I developed what I assume was a low grade fever for a night or two (I didn't measure my temperature, but had very bad chills and cold sensitivity). It subsided quickly.) 4/5/2013 - I develop a strange clicking in my sinuses (ears, back of nose) when I talk, usually after a hard 'k' sound. Still persists. 4/6 - Symptoms still persisting, I visit another ENT. He suspects CSF leakage.

That accident left me with a Grade 3 concussion, orbial floor fracture and a complex zygomatic arch fracture. I have been evaluated for Traumatic Brian Injury, but the 'test' came back "normal". I KNOW I am suffering again with depression and do not know where to turn. I am not up for the trial and error on meds when I know what works. So how do I go to a doctor I have never seen before and tell him I want a script for Wellbutrin??
I have a 21 year old daughter very active soccer player who received grade 3 concussion 4 years ago, then a subsequent whiplash and a grade 2 concusion within 6 months after 1st concussion. She can't remember most of her junior year in high school, but was OK for her senior year. Problem now (4 years later) is that she has peripheral neuropathy in her feet which has led up to both legs. Intese pain, burning, tingling. Had CAT scans and MRI's with no results.
I have had digestive issues for around 8 years. It kind of comes and goes. It usually lasts like 3 weeks then comes back after a couple week break. It can be diarrhea, constipation, having 6 or 7 bowel movements a day.... I have never had normal periods. I have been on birth control since I first had my period in seventh grade. My periods would last around 3 weeks and be very heavy and then I would have one week where I wouldn't have a period and then it would start all over again.
blood work (thyroid, iron, sugar), kidney function (along with pregnancy test), blood pressure taken in 3 positions, and EKG. Everything was spot on, with the exception of a low-grade fever. The ER doctor asked me to follow-up with my family doctor as I could have a long-running virus. Hearing this, my family physician's office arranged to have me come in the following day. I spoke with the nurse practitioner who decided I could be having vertigo as a result of my cold. She put me on 75 mgs...
