Yes: Concussions are diffucult to treat. I treat many each year. Headaches, fatigue are very common. Fear of re-injury is normal. Those with depression or anxitey diagnosis prior to their concussion tend to see these issues worsen somewhat. These folks also seem to take longer to get back to 'normal'. The dizziness can be helped by a good Physcal Therapist or Chiropracter trained to treat concussi
