PostConcussion: This can be serious. Until one month after the symptoms resolve, it is essential that you do not risk any second impact to your head. If this persists, a visit to a neurologist is in order. Read about post-concussion syndrome and second impact syndrome online. I'm sorry this happened -- good luck.

Need to tell your MD: Sometimes dizziness, drowsiness, headache, nausea, troublee with balance, mean increasing pressure on brain die to bleeding beneath the cover of the brain (dura).
