In brief: Cannot tell, varies

Need to find a pcp, or neurologist who have interest in concussion injury and the sequela.
Can tell you answer in this format.

Post-concussion syndrome usually resolves within a couple of weeks. If symptoms last longer than 2-3 weeks, then seek help--start with your PCP (primary care physician); specialty programs for post-concussion syndrome are available in many cities (trauma programs, sports medicine departments, neurologists, and neurosurgeons often have treatment protocols).

In brief: Different

Symptoms for post concussion symptoms vary widely between people.
I usually have my patients measure and track symptoms daily in a journal for frequency, intensity and duration of episode to get a better idea. Look at 90 day intervals for changes.

Symptoms of concussion may last from hours to days to months.
Trouble with attention and focus may remain for more than a year, and in some cases be permanent. See a neurologistfor evaluation and treatment.
