Oct 18, 2021

What is a Concussion?

While a concussion is categorized as a mild traumatic brain injury and may come without acute symptoms, it can lead to severe complications if left untreated. Here’s what you need to know to stay protected.

Should You Worry About a Concussion?

Concussions should be taken very seriously. In some cases, someone who has a concussion may not even know it. Some concussions can take hours or days for any symptoms to surface. That’s why it’s critical to seek medical care after a car accident, fall, or any other event that caused trauma to the head. An untreated concussion can lead to long-term problems, such as:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Memory issues
  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • Mood swings
  • Brain fog

How Do You Know If You Have a Concussion?

You may have a concussion if you are experiencing the following:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dizziness or headaches
  • Memory problems
  • Fatigue or irritability
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sleep difficulties
