Signs of a concussion and when to seek medical care

Head injuries can be quiet culprits when it comes to bodily injuries. Someone may collide with another person while playing football or hit their head on the window after being T-boned by another vehicle. While the individual may realize that they have been injured, the severity of the injury is often unknown.

These incidents could result in someone getting a concussion. This is a type of traumatic brain injury that can severely affect the way a person’s brain functions. While symptoms are often temporary, a concussion can have more severe symptoms that may need medical attention or rehabilitation.

How does one know if they have had a concussion? There are some signs that often appear which our readers should watch out for. After a concussion, a person may feel confused or have amnesia. They may also experience a headache or some pressure in the head. Other symptoms include nausea, fatigue, slurred speed, and vomiting.

These symptoms can be less prominent in children, especially if they are of an age where they cannot articulate what symptoms they are experiencing. If a child has had a concussion, he or she may tire easily, be cranky or irritable, seem dazed, experience a change in sleeping patterns or lose interest in their favorite toys.

It’s important to seek medical care if you suspect a concussion. While a head injury may only end up leading to a minor concussion, even mild symptoms may be a sign that something much worse has happened. It goes without saying that if you are experiencing severe symptoms, such as repeated vomiting, seizures or a loss of consciousness, you should seek emergency care.
