In brief: Post concussive

After a concussion it is not unusual to have some persistent headache, dizziness, vertigo or general malaise.
So long as the symptoms are getting better slowly, I wouldn't worry too much. If increased activity worsens the symptoms, slow down and see if doing a little less helps improve your symptoms. It may take 4-6 weeks to get back to normal. If you are getting worse, go see your doctor!!
