In brief: Yes yes

Concussion, now more properly known as mild traumatic brain injury, can disturb hormonal regulation via the hypothalamic-pituitary axis as well as disruption of proper functioning of the autonomic nervous system.
Regulation may be difficult and usually is only symptomatic, ie not truly reversible.
