Sometimes: Concussion can cause permanent damage. Some symptoms of post-concussion syndrome can last weeks or months. If your imaging tests (such as ct or mri) are normal, you might need to wait this one out on symptomatic treatment alone. Ask your doctor for specific recommendation.

CONCUSSION: It is best to discuss this with your Neurologist who knows your medical history. If your are uncomfortable with your Dr. consult with another for a 2nd opinion.
