What are treatment options for a concussion?
Hi
Sorry about your concussion :-/

The best way to treat is :

1. REST
2. don't watch tv or read if you have headache
3. motrin and tylenol for pain
4. no heavy lifting or strenous exercise

you may feel tired and irritable for the next 3 weeks after a concussion
that is normal.
But 95% of people after back to normal by the end of a month
So hang in there and take it EASY!

I hope that I provided you with excellent service.
Please leave positive feedback if I did
Use reply if you need clarification.

I have school tomorrow so how am I supposed to rest?
I would take the day off- usually I give 3 days off after the injury, Krysta :-)
