Did you lose: Consciousness? You can have a concussion with or without loss of consciousness. Headache/ pressure of head? Are you unable to recall what happened? Do you feel dizzy or have ringing in the ears? Confusion or slurred speech? Nausea or vomiting? Extreme fatigue? If you believe you have a concussion please seek prompt medical care. If you don't have these types of symptoms - you can go to bed.
