What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury that follows trauma. Accidents during sports and recreational activities are the leading causes of concussions. Full recovery from these injuries is possible with proper treatment. However, multiple concussions in children or teens may mean longer recovery times, symptoms that do not go away, and lifelong problems.
Concussion symptoms include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Dizziness or difficulty balancing
- Fuzzy or blurry vision
- Tiredness or lack of energy
- Sensitivity to light or noise
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling slower
- Memory loss
Emotional and Mood
- Nervousness or anxiety
- Emotional sensitivity
- Sleep more or less than usual
- Trouble falling asleep
