If I had brain bleeding after a concussion, would I know it?

In brief: Not likely

Concussion is often associated with micro bleeds in the brain that do not produce a mass or reach the csf.
In fact diagnosis of concussion includes no evidence of bleed. Bleeding in the brain raises the finding to more than concussion. The person suffering the "concussion" is usually not in a position to know if there is bleeding in the brain.
