In brief: First ALS, now this

A couple of yr ago that furshlugginer Ice Bucket Challenge set off an epidemic of ALS hysteria among healthy young people.
Now it's concussion anxiety. What gives? If you could "concuss" yourself that easily, EVERYONE would have concussions all the time. Find something else to be frightened of, like who may win the 2016 presidential election. Now THAT'S scary.

This sounds more like ongoing symptoms while healing from a concussion. Increase your activities as you can tolerate, but don't push yourself too much, and don't shake your healing brain around if it's causing symptoms. Be patient with your recovery, and I hope you feel all better soon.
