A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head or when the head and upper body are violently shaken. Concussions are common in contact sports, such as football, hockey and soccer. If you’ve had a concussion, your brain needs time to rest in order to recover and heal properly.
Signs and symptoms of a concussion may include:
Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event
Confusion or feeling as if in a fog
Delayed response to questions
Dizziness or “seeing stars”
Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head
Ringing in the ears
Temporary loss of consciousness
