Can I Drink After A Minor Concussion
Can I drink five weeks after sustaining a minor concussion? No extreme symptoms, and less than 10 drinks
Less than 3!: It is not a good idea to drink more than 2-3 drinks a day, and then not every day After a head injury there can be delayed problems. Drinking too much may cause symptoms that are hard to tell from a problem related to your concussion. Have 1 or 2 a couple of times a week. If you drink more than that you risk falling down and hitting your head again! Amongst other problems from too much booze. ...Read more
I suffered a minor concussion 9 days ago. My only lasting symptom was a minor headache which ceased about three days ago. Can I drink tomorrow night?

Take care of it now. It has to last a life time! Discuss this with your pcp, neurologist or ns who treated you. ...Read more
Minor concussion a week ago. Symptoms completely gone after 2 days. When can I go back to exercising, drinking alcohol, and drinking coffee?
Do not rush: You may find that exercise brings back symptoms of your concussion. Do not rush trying to get back to full exercise tolerance. Start slowly and build up slowly. You may find that alcohol may be more compromising than it has been in the past. Moderation should be the rule. The same with coffee and other caffeine containing drinks. ...Read more
I got a minor concussion on Tuesday night. My dr says I am post concussive at this point. Would it be okay for me to drink alcohol this weekend?
Alcohol is a poison that never did any body any good, ever. Stay away from it. It will damage your brain more than what it already is.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.

Had a minor concussion 6months ago. Been in a fog, dizziness, pressure in my head ever since. If I start drinking now, will I do permanent brain damage?
Pros and cons: Early on in recovery from a concussion it is good to avoid stimulant drinks. Your brain need to rest not only from physical but from cognitive tasks. After a few weeks a good part of recovery has occurred and caffeine containing drinks in moderation are ok (2 cups a day before noon). For those with post concussion syndrome and prolonged recovery, up to a year, caffeine can help with symptoms, http://www. Bidmc.

If you got hit pretty hard and blacked out while you were drunk. How do you know if you've had a concussion or just had too much to drink?
Hard to say: Black outs if they preceeded the knock on the head are probably alcohol related. I would talk with my doctor and track any symptoms and signs of cognitive issues in the next 2 weeks. Balance, vision issues, inattentiveness, fatigue, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, etc. ...Read more
