Concussion Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not be immediately apparent. Symptoms can last for days, weeks or even longer.

The most common symptoms after a concussive traumatic brain injury are headache, amnesia and confusion. The amnesia, which may or may not be preceded by a loss of consciousness, almost always involves the loss of memory of the impact that caused the concussion.
 

Signs and symptoms of a concussion may include:

 Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head

 Temporary loss of consciousness

 Confusion or feeling as if in a fog

 Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event

 Dizziness or "seeing stars"

 Ringing in the ears

 Nausea or vomiting

 Slurred speech

 Fatigue
 

Some symptoms of concussions may be immediate or delayed in onset by hours or days after injury:

 Concentration and memory complaints

 Irritability and other personality changes

 Sensitivity to light and noise

 Sleep disturbances

Psychological adjustment problems and depression

 Disorders of taste and smell
 

Athletes

No one should return to play or vigorous activity while signs or symptoms of a concussion are present. Experts recommend that an athlete with a suspected concussion not return to play until he or she has been medically evaluated. Experts also recommend that child and adolescent athletes with a concussion not return to play on the same day as the injury.
