In brief: Headaches/confusion
People suffering from concussions often have headaches for a few weeks/months afterward.
Concentration/memory problems. People with jobs requiring complex tasks/processes may need cognitive testing to assess ability to resume full duties. Athletes with concussions and loss of consciousness need head ct. Return to sports should be avoided until headaches resolve without return with exertion.
