Yes.: Across subtypes of childhood myoclonic epilepsy, many patients have an underlying genetic cause for their seizures. Despite advances in identifying causes of epilepsy, for most cases of infantile & early childhood myoclonic epilepsy, no clear etiology will be found despite an appropriate workup. Overall prognosis associated with myoclonic epilepsy in childhood depends on the underlying etiology. ...Read more
Yes: A concussion is a "bruise" to the brain. Depending upon the severity and if there is any brain swelling or pressure change in the skull, symptoms can vary widely. It's a good idea to stay in contact with your doctor or neurologist after a head injury to watch for new symptoms but it may take weeks to recover. ...Read more

Some of these kids can have an event related headache arise up to a few weeks after in a normal recovery ...Read more
I have been recovering from back to back concussions for over a year and yesterday someone patted my head four times kinda hard and it still hurts?
Scalp pain: May take a year to resolve. If you injured a cutaneous nerve and it tried to regrow from its origin and came up against an obstacle (such as scar tissue between the skull and skin) It may form a neuroma. If this is the case tenderness may persist for years. These are issues that are of course separate from the myriad cognitive / behavioral issues that may arise following a single TBI. ...Read more

I just got hit in the back of the head with a hockey puck. Would there be obvious symptoms of concussion?
My 6 month old fell and hit the back of her head how do I know if she has a concussion and do I keep her awake if so for how long?
Watch over the next: Day or so. It would be extremely unlikely to have significant bleeding, but watch for unusual sleepiness, difference in pupil size, nausea/vomitting. Concussions have variable presentation and symptoms can show up even much later. You know your child best, and can tell if there is anything worrisome going on. I would not necessarily keep her awake, but stick to a routine sleep schedule. ...Read more
Had a concussion a year or so before. Last night someone whipped a ping pong ball and it hit the back of my head? Should I be worried?
Probably not: It is very unlikely a ping pong ball would create enough force to cause a concussion, even if it was hit very hard. Observe yourself for headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, memory and concentration problems and other post-concussive symptoms. Seek medical attention if these develop and last beyond a day.

Can you get a concussion from whipping your head back really fast? I mean using your own muscles and no outside force
Yes, but it's not...: ...likely. Most of the time, if you aren't properly trained and conditioned in head whipping, the worst that happens is your equilibrium gets seriously messed up, making you dizzy, nauseated & off balance. You COULD get a concussion after head whipping if you fall and knock your head on something hard. I don't recommend head whipping to unsupervised, unskilled casual dance enthusiasts. ...Read more
I knocked my head a few weeks back and from then I feel strange. Bloated and sick. Could this be concussion symptoms?
Possibly: Concussion symptoms may last for a few weeks. Usually the symptoms include headache, nausea, trouble thinking, trouble focusing, dizziness. The symptoms tend to diminish in intensity. If they do not, you need to be concerned about some structural damage such as a subdural hematoma, intracranial hemorrhage, or post-traumatic hydrocephalus. These are more likely to occur if the tbi is more severe. ...Read more
Walked into a hanging tree branch I didn't see. It bumped me around the back and top of my head. Can this cause injury? Had concussion before.
Of course, that...: Of course, but that would depend on the force of the impact. A little impact that scrapes off a few skin cells is an injury, but nobody worries about that. Getting knocked to the ground would be an injury, and we might worry about that one. Common sense and judgement will help one decide when to go see his doctor. Questions like "Can this cause injury? " almost always have YES for an answer. ...Read more
