Most likely: It takes much less force than previously thought to cause a concussion and you do not have to pass out. The fact that you had immediate symptoms and residual symptoms is enough to make the diagnosis. You should be seen and have a thorough examination to have as baseline and then regular followups to compare. A scan may be ordered and NO playing sports until ALL symptoms gone.
