Common Questions and Answers about How long concussion headache last

concussion

G'day. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right area-don't know where else to put it. I've had a concussion for about 9 days now with "usual, mild-average" symptoms. The last couple days have been like the first couple days, cannot rest my head at night from the pain, taking two 650 mg Tylenols when I think of it, also seem more confused & forgetful (before major loss of sleep). The last 48 hrs. I've slept for 40 min's.
How long will my symptoms last? Is Chronic Subdural Hematoma a possibility even though the trauma trivial?
Hi! As you have yourself identified, lack of sleep and anxiety could be the cause of your persisting symptoms. I suggest you take up an exercise you like such as walking, cycling, swimming etc. Do deep breathing exercises. If anxiety persists then consult a doctor.
How long after a concussion is it normal to still be feeling nauseous and have difficulty with memory, balance etc. I got hit in the face with a softball 14 days ago and am still nauseous. Cannot stand on one leg with eyes closed, and have forgotten things like PIN numbers, passwords etc. I went back to GP who sent me to A&E for checking out, but they said just concussion, no evidence of bleeding. I've developed a stiff neck too.
How long after a concussion is it normal to still be feeling nauseous and have difficulty with memory, balance etc. I got hit in the face with a softball 11 days ago and am still nauseous. Cannot stand on one leg with eyes closed, and have forgotten things like PIN numbers, passwords etc. is it too soon to expect these symptoms to be gone, or should I go back to the drs. I did also break my nose, which was realigned under local anaesthetic 6 days ago. No LOC. No actual vomiting.

The next day when I woke up my jaw hut and my eye on the side I hit my head was so red it looked as if someone had painte it blood red. But I could see. I drove my self tpo the emergency room because I am and was unemployed. CAT ws done and appeared to be fine, but....
I've suffered a minor head injury with lasting Post Concussion Symptomes for 6 months 3 years ago. 2010. In May of this year (2013) I've suffered from two minor concussion within a 3 weeks period. The second one gave me a trip to the ER in a helicopter, I had to take a week off and very slowly resume activites. Sensitivity to noises for approx 6 weeks, to light for 3 weeks. Dizzyness, headache, feeling off, trouble concentrating, trouble remembering.
Although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. Usually, such symptoms and dizziness may result due to post-concussion syndrome and may last for weeks or months after the injury that caused from the injury of a fall, vehicle accident, or sports injury. In addition, one may experience either migraine type or tension type headache.
All the problems that go with a concussion. Anyways I have been to 3 neurologists and the last one finally said post concussion, I finally had my 3 year headache diagnosed as a chronic paroxysmal hemicrania and am on meds for it. Now I have sleep problems, I sleep to much. At least 4 naps a day, uncontrollable need for sleep. I went to a sleep study and have not heard the results yet. My question is, could this really be post concussion syndrome? does it last 3 years?
My 16 year old son was in a car wreck 5 1/2 days ago where he suffered a grade 2 moderate concussion. He was knocked unconscious for a short period of time & received a scalp laceration to the right side of his head . The CT scan discovered what the neurosurgeon described as a small thread size bleed. Later that day another CT scan was done & all signs of bleeding were gone & the blood had been absorbed. His stay in the hospital was for 3 days.
You could use acetaminophen for headache, eat a light diet, light activity around the house, avoid alcohol etc. Concussion with brain damage needs hospital care. Full recovery is expected in an uncomplicated concussion. The symptoms may continue to occur weeks to months later. Take care.
I don't understand how a mild concussion can take so long to heal. I know people on the football team who have gotten knocked out and have severe concussions that lasted only a month. All I did was fall over and I didn't even hit my head, so why is mine so much worse now?
Can anyone give me an idea of how long this headache will last? We have tried every OTC you can think of along with Tylenol 3, but had to stop because of rebounding. Prednisone in one large dose (60mg) made a positive difference but caused a nasty reaction. In a much smaller dose (20mg x 3, then 10mg x 3) it hasn't seemed to help. I no longer give her anything to help her sleep, she seems to be sleeping well on her own again.
and its not just a headache but it feels like my head is going to explode. And last but not least, the most annoying this is my ears WILL NOT stop ringing. I've been to the doctor for this and he said I should be okay within a couple weeks. But it hasn't gotten any better, it's actually gotten worse. What could be the problem and should I make another appointment with my doctor?
I have had a headache everyday for the last 2 1/2 years. I had a cat scan done, and everything was normal. I have been on topamax, and I had to go off as it made my feet and hands tingle. I also did chiroprator therapy, massage therapy, accupuncture, and now an doing a hyper-baric chamber thereapy. Nothing seems to help, and I am at the end of my ropes. It is really effecting my quality of life. It holds me back from thinks I want to do.

But you may have chronic post concussion syndrome and it'll last a long, long time. I really hope you get your disability because the LAST thing you should be doing is working! Oh, and when you think about those Soduku puzzles,which Ialso still like to do, is they are FUN. But filling out a form is NOT fun, so to heck with that !!! So, that should give you some encouragement as to where you REALLY are with this whole brain disaster area.
Really dont think i can take it any more. Have done some research on the internet and it said about post-concussion. How long is all this going to last and what can i do about it?
For the last 4 weeks I have had a headache that is very different from a sinus headache or a migraine. And the ear ringing is so distracting. They have tried a shot of tribadol, relpax for migraines, mucinex for fluid behind the ears, sudafed, and most recently antibiotics for possible virus. They just did an MRI and are sending me to a Neurologist. I am so frustrated and confused about who to even see for this. I am going to try the yoga exercises and hope to share some good news.
no evidence of any bleeds , tumours ect Around 2-3 days ago i tried lifting a very heavy object, and i felt the strain, the type of strain you feel pressure in your head, it was only for around 3-5 seconds, but now ive got a very bad headache, and it comes gradually through out the 2-3 days since ive strained myself, tablets do help quite a bit, to kill the pain, and im only 16 so im at no age risks, ...
this is my first day without taking anything in a few months. i didnt sleep at all last night. how long does no sleep last?
My question is, how dangerous is a bulge at C6/7. I am worried that if I fall or cause any sudden movement, it may herniate. Does this area effect any other part of the body besides the arm? Everyone, my PCP, my neurologist and my PT have given me different answers. I want the dizziness and vertigo to stop. Any advice?
The next morning, I awoke with an intense right-sided headache (behind right eye) which continues now, but last night, I had shooting pains in my right leg and arm. This led to tingling, and my foot began burning with numbness from the knee down. The headache continues this morning, but the numbness and tingling have almost subsided. I have been having these varied symptoms on and off, days and weeks at a time, for the past two years but never all at once and with such sudden intensity.
Hi, I have an odd question, and what I'm really wanting to know is are my weird symptoms related? I know people say that some are signs of a tumor, and I read a list of "other symptoms" on surveys by people diagnosed with tumors, and I saw several of my symptoms listed. I have had amigrainous migraines since shortly after my daughter was born (I was in my late 20s then, I'm in my early 40s now)--meaning I get the aura but no headache.
It feels so much like the post-LP headache I had last February. Also, My son is wondering if people with MS react differently when they get in a car accident and if it could bring on an relapse. Geez, just one more thing for me to worry about, but I told him I'd ask you guys to see if you might know. On top of everything going on, my husband is home safe and sound but he ended up getting sick enroute. Poor guy. Thanks for any info you guys can pass on.
Usually, such symptoms may result due to post-concussion syndrome and may last for weeks or months after the injury that caused from the injury of a fall, vehicle accident, or sports injury. For treatment approach, first it is essential to get (MRI) done to detect the brain or spinal abnormalities after that injury. Treatment commonly may be suggested for symptoms such as pain-killers, some antidepressants, physical therapy and regular exercises.
I have suffered with vertigo for over 15 years. First brought on by an ear infection. First ENT doctor did very little for me except prescribe prednisone, which did not help and my first attack lasted almost 6 months. Then about 10 months after taking the prednisone, I suddenly went blind in my left eye. Doctor said it was caused by the prednisone and I had to have both of the lenses in my eyes replaced with interocular implants.
Question is, am I just going nuts fearing the worse for no reason, how long will this take to pass over? I would like to go back to the gym for cardio but I don't want to put any pressure on my head if it will make matters worse. There is still a bit of pain on my cheek if I press on it.. Also I was told the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body so an injury on the left side of the face can result in headaches on the right side?
