Yes, implies brain: injury from concussion, though only issues commonly detectable by current technology would be large enough tissue damage (stroke) or intracranial bleed; possibly subdural hematoma. The latter occasionally becomes symptomatic slowly & progressively over time. Latest model NMRI scans, 1.5- 3.0 Tesla systems generally have the best sensitivity, Suggest finding assistance worthy your trust.
