Do not: Do not returned to the contact sport until all your symptoms are completely resolved. Meanwhile, see a neurologist to receive medications for symptomatic treatment..

Rest: Despite length of time after concussion, your still symptomatic and need to be evaluated by a sports medicine/ PMR physician. You should NOT return to sports at this time and ultimate return to play will need to be determined by your doc after a complete history and examination
