In brief: Not good

Repeat concussions can cause a disproportionate amount of brain injury if they occur close enough in time.
If you suffer a concussion, do your very best to avoid activities which can lead to a repeat concussion.

In brief: Concussion

A second concussion in the same month is very worrisome.
Secondary impact syndrome (sis) with the sequalae of memory loss, headaches, dizziness, irritability is a real issue and needs to be evaluated by a neurologist.
