What are the signs and symptoms of concussion?
A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that can be caused by a fall or a blow to the head or body that hurts the brain’s normal neurological function.
Though no two concussions are alike, some of the most common symptoms are:
- Balance problems and dizziness
- Drowsiness, feeling sluggish, fatigued or mentally foggy
- Headache, pressure in head, sensitivity to noise or light
- Vision changes, double vision, blurred vision
