Possible concussion: A concussion is a traumatic brain injury which affects your brain function. The effects of a concussion are usually temporary but can include headaches along with problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination. Rest is essential. I also suggest an "immediate" exam in a medical clinic for a proper evaluation!
