Concussion headache

Common Questions and Answers about Concussion headache


Avatar f tn In addition, patient may experience seizures, really bad headache such as migraine type or tension type headache and personality changes. For treatment approach, first it is essential to get (MRI) done to detect the brain abnormalities after that injury. I would suggest arranging an appointment with a neurologist who will further evaluate the possibilities here and can provide you an appropriate treatment. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I had a CT Scan at the local emergency room, and I have followed up with family doctor. I have had this headache now for 7 days. I have also had periods of time where I am unable to focus. I have had two previous concussions in the last twenty years. I have severe migraine headaches a few times a year. Can the concussions be the cause of the migraines?
Avatar f tn About a week ago I slipped off the sidewalk because of the snow and ice and hit the right side of my head on my car door. I never lost consciousness but immediately had a headache. Since then, I have had a constant head, a pain below my right ear, and occasional nausea. I am also extremely tired regardless of the amount of sleep I get. Could it be a possible concussion and should I see a doctor?
Avatar m tn Did you tell your coach about what happened? He should really know about this. Not sure if you'd call it a concussion, but body tremors aren't good. Make sure to rest up and let your coach know about this so they can watch you at practice.
Avatar n tn The decision to return a player to full status after a concussion depends on the degree of the concussion. There is a practice guideline published by the American Academy of Neurology dealing with this topic. If the loss of consciousness was brief (seconds) and his neurologic examination and head imaging are normal then 1 week of rest (without symptoms) is reasonable.
Avatar m tn I took a blow to the back of my head 3 days ago, it was pretty hard but I did not lose consciousness or get dizzy. My vision has been fine also. I do have a headache now for three days. Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn Usually, such headaches 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, patient may experience either migraine type or tension type headache. For treatment approach, first it is essential to get (MRI) done to detect the brain abnormalities after that injury.
Avatar m tn and small cut where I hit it. I got a headache and then very nauseated about 20 minutes later. The next day at work I was almost finished with my shift and all the sudden I got so dizzy I couldn't walk out of work without holding on to the wall. The third day when I was at home, I woke up, I still had a headache and was dizzy all day and just felt blah so I went to my dr. that day. He did a neuro exam and during this exam he made me walk across the room.
Avatar f tn I suffered a concussion in sept. 2012 maybe? Then again in April of 2013. Im still suffering from memory loss, focus and concentration issues, attention problems, and a constant headache. How long should or could this last?? If relevant, I'm 38.
Avatar m tn If MRI is ok, then you may be having concussion. The symptoms of concussion vary from person to person. Headache, confusion, memory loss, dizziness, nausea vomiting, slurred speech and fatigue are common. Delayed symptoms include depression, irritability, sleep disturbances, seizures, loss of smell etc. A doctor generally looks for focal neurological or generalized neurological symptoms that would show there is a pressure on brain somewhere.
Avatar n tn Often, people lose consciousness briefly usually a few minutes or less, but they may simply become confused or be unable to recall events and experiences for a brief period before or after the injury. For some time after a concussion, people may experience headache, dizziness, fatigue, poor memory, inability to concentrate, trouble sleeping, difficulty thinking, irritability, depression, and anxiety. These symptoms are called the postconcussion syndrome.
Avatar n tn It irritated nerves on my left and right sides. I don't remember hitting my head, but I've had a headache pretty much constantly since. Headache is mostly right side on front of head. I've also been feeling spacy, dizzy, and nauseous since. I don't have any bruise like pain at the back of my head. It might be a sinus infection, but it all started the day after I hit my shoulder, so I'm not sure? Usually I puke when I'm having sinus issues, but I haven't had any puking.
Avatar m tn headache, dizziness, vomiting, unsteady gait, excessive sleep, hallucinations etc. In all probability the fall resulted in an imbalance that the vestibular organs or the balance organs were not able to correct immediately. Hence, you felt the shakiness of the brain. However, please consult your doctor regarding this as it is important to rule out any head or neck injury. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn This caused huge problems, I went to the doctor, who said that i had a grade two concussion. I also went to the hospital to get a CT scan, but the results were normal. I definitely don't feel normal, I have a huge headache all the time that never goes away, I can't concentrate at all in school and I have a hard time reading, also my eyes burn when there is really bright light. Are these symptoms just temporary?

Avatar m tn My daughter has hit her eye and we are worried about a concussion.
799929 tn?1237608253 Post concussion syndrome can occur months and years after the concussion. It is characterized by headache, and memory loss and irritability. It is hard to tell if this is what it is without a neurological exam. I would suggest you to ask him to get a neurological evaluation done as early as possible.
Avatar f tn it seems to be healing but is still slightly an openish soar. I had a headache of course for the past three days which has reduced to a dull ache. There is a loss of feeling around the area, accept the gash which is more sore. I get slightly sick to my stomache when its messed with and now my head seams to be constontly itching. I also had a slight eye twitch which has stopped. Im just wondering what it could be and if i should still go to the doctor. Thankyou for your advice.
435918 tn?1204740941 Today is the 21st consecutive day that I have had a headache, my eye has been twitching for the past 3 hours or so, and I'm kind of fed up and tired of feeling this way... headache, fatigue, jaw pain, etc. I am supposed to see a neurologist on 3/13, but the girl in his office said not to tell him I had been involved in a MVA because he won't see me if he knows. I just don't know where to go from here.
Avatar n tn Three days ago i experienced a concussion with loss of consciousness i was probably struck in forehead by a large metal door, but i do not recall what occured. I was brought to the ER and a CT scan found nothing related to the injury. Due to the incident occuring at work i am being seen daily by a different Dr. I have been given confilicting information, and am very confussed about what i should be experiencing!
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if i have a concussion or is whats been going on since the inncodent. Yesterday I took a hit to a window of a car. I remember coming down the drive way and kinda remember the hit......just remember holding the side of my head because it hurt badly. The headache did not start instantly but i was dizzy. i went in the house and took a shower but i don't remember how i got there or what happened in between.....
Avatar n tn They gave us 2 small syringes and informed us that she would have a headache so giver her a dose in the morning and evening. This was on Tues. night. She slept all day Wed. in her kennal. I have not been able to get her to eat or drink anything. I used a small syringe and suirt some water in her mouth, but that is all I can get in her. I worry about her getting dehydrated, and she is so small in size as it is.
1770029 tn?1325805955 i did not black out and felt relatively fine. however, I had a headache. WHen i woke up this morning, my neck was hurting. I felt "fuzzy". But other than that and my neck, I feel fine. I am worried about having a concussion or some type of brain bleeding. Should i go to the doctor? I understand people think I should have went to the doctor immediately but I know people who have had concussions and they are fine.
Avatar m tn so in the past, ive had pretty hard bumps to my head, but i feel alrihgt( no signs of concussion or anytrhing ) each time... however. about 3-4 years ago... some guy in my class just decides to punch in the head a good couple of times pretty hard, at first didn't really feel anything, then later on the day, dizziness and a little headache. continued on, and then a few days later, i felt sleepy and then i got worried.
Avatar f tn a few years back the same thing happened to me but i felt fine right after only a slight headache this was wen i was 12 im now 16 and have been okay although ive had migraines for awhile to and the heavy head but apart from that im fine however if it really does bother you see your doctors they can give u something to feel better.

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Hello. A concussion means that you have transient ( short lasting) symptoms of a traumatic brain injury. The symptoms may include memory loss, reduced ability to plan and organize, slowing of response to stimuli, etc. You can tell how sever your symptoms are only after you have recovered from the concussion. Post concussion syndrome involves prolonged symptoms. Usually headache is a common symptom. Memory is also commonly affected. It's less than a month since you have had the fall.
Avatar n tn I have had a post-concussion tensio-type chronic headache for 3.5 years (caused by a vehicle rollover). For the past 2 years I have been receiving Botox injections every 3 months and they give me almost 3 months of being almost headache-free. However, there is a 3-4 week period when the previous Botox injections wear off and before the latest injections start working (they take about 2 wks to work for me) when my headache is back and it's exhausting and unbearable.
