Get it checked out: Each concussion builds on the last. If this is due to a sports injury then, you're pushing the limits of when you should be pulled from the sport since there comes a point where getting concussed becomes so easy that it's a real risk to take any type of hit. Your future cognitive health depends on it. Headaches should be treated or they become chronic. Questions? www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi

Evaluated?: I would be visiting my doctor and neurologist if the symptoms haven't passed or lessened after 5 months. You've had 2 concussions and may benefit from more screenings/imaging at this point.
