In brief: Blow to the brain

A concussion causes pain from the impact injury to the brain when the brain strikes the skull from the inside.
Sometimes it is not severe enough to cause too much dysfunction except the headache which can last for weeks or even a few months. Omega 3 pills are showing some benefits to people.
