Yes: A concussion is a "bruise" to the brain. Depending upon the severity and if there is any brain swelling or pressure change in the skull, symptoms can vary widely. It's a good idea to stay in contact with your doctor or neurologist after a head injury to watch for new symptoms but it may take weeks to recover.
