Symptoms fit: The symptoms you are describing are certainly consistent with concussion. Other symptoms of concussion include: fatigue, vision changes, irritability, feeling slowed down, difficulty sleeping, feeling emotional, sleeping more/less, memory issues, mentally foggy. Typical concussion improves in 7-10 days with rest from stressing the brain & body. If symptoms worsen or any concerns, I'd seek eval.
