Sleeping after a concussion is normal, but spleep periods that lengthen and become deeper can be signs of serious involvement and requirement of prompt medical attention.

Sure you can fly after a concussion, but headaches associated with concussions can become worse. Something to look out for.

Don't take aspirin, Motrin, or any other medication that contains ibuprofen. Tylenol is the safest because the other ones tend to increase the risk of bleeding. If you experience nausea, excessive tiredness, restlessness, disorientation, etc... get medical help immediately.
