In brief: Concussion

Concussions typically can occur after a head injury.
It doesn't have to be a severe head injury or have loss of consciousness. It depends on the severity of the injury. The symptoms can include headache, dizziness, vision change (blurred vision/ double vision), nausea/vomiting. If your symptoms or headache are severe, or if you have a loss of consciousness, you should get evaluated immediately

In brief: Definition

A concussion by definition is a brief brain injury resulting in loss of consciousness, loss of memory or a combination of both.
Persistent symptoms following the event may suggest additional impact on brain function and needs to be addressed.
