Common: Exercise frequently makes symptoms of concussion worse. This is how athletes are tested before allowing them to return to athletics after chi.

Unhealed concussion : You should be checked out from a sports medicine physician that has experience with concussions. More than likely your concussion hasn't healed yet and that is causing the headaches after running.
