I’m feeling more like myself today. Most of the symptoms have resided. I still have a mild headache, nausea and fatigue. My thoughts are a little clearer
Concussion is usually self-diagnosable. I did call my doctor and we decided I know when to go to the emergency room. I know what to do, just rest and follow the instructions I posted in yesterday’s blog post.
Symptoms may include headache, confusion, and lack of coordination, memory loss, nausea, vomiting, and dizziness, ringing in the ears, sleepiness, and excessive fatigue.
People may experience:
Headache: can be persistent or severe
Cognitive: amnesia, disorientation, or mental confusion
Whole body: blackout, fatigue, or poor balance
Gastrointestinal: nausea or vomiting
Also common: irritability, mild depression, ringing in the ears, sensitivity to light, or sleepiness
