Avoid alcohol: You may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If it's accompanied by other symptoms (difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. Improvement in symptoms is based on many factors. See your physician if the symptoms persist. Avoid alcohol and drugs as they may impede your cognition. http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/pdf/facts_about_concussion_tbi-a.pdf
