Concussion is a temporary loss of consciousness without severe damage to the brain in a head injury.
If you were given painkillers, there can be a reaction between your medication and the alcohol.
Studies have shown that the symptoms of a concussion are very similar to the effects drugs such as alcohol. So if you drink alcohol, the effect is greatly intensified.
The signs of concussion are not always well recognized. Adding alcohol will increase the risk because people may put themselves at risk for another injury.That's a problem, because if the brain hasn't healed properly from a concussion and a person gets another brain injury (even if it's with less force), it can be serious.
