Get checked: The effects of concussions can vary and be unpredictable. It depends on the severity of the injury. The best thing is to give your brain complete rest. The more strain you place on your brain while it is attempting to heal, the more likely it is to slow down the healing process. It would be good to get re-evaluated by your doctor.
