Impaired function: Concussion can affect your physical state, thinking ability, emotional state, and can affect your sleeping pattern. Some common findings are headaches, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, fatigue, visual problems, problems concentrating, emotional irritability, drowsiness, sleeping problems. If you are concerned, see a physician who can evaluate you for post-head injury symptoms.
