In brief: 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.

In brief: Concussion

It may take weeks or months for the head to heal fully after a concussion.
Once you have had one concussion, it is easier to have another.
