You should see a Doc: If you sustained a concussion a year ago and are still having headaches, you need to be examined by a Neurosurgeon or Neurologist who specializes in post concussive syndrome. At a minimum you should have a CT or MRI of brain done. Are you having other symptoms like neck pain or memory problems? Good luck
