Should be fine: Post-concussion syndrome can include headache, blurry vision, memory troubles, and nausea. Usually it will go away within a few days. See your doctor if these symptoms persist for more than a week. Avoid any contact sport or any potential head injury for at least a week after your symptoms have completely resolved. Go to the ER if you have persistent vomiting or decreased level of consciousness.
