I was wondering if I was correct to think I have a concusion
Neurologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Alright, this is due to a concussion.

It can take at least 3 to 4 weeks for a concussion to subside.

A concussion means that the brain was significantly shaken during the impact but you did not suffer any parenchymal injury or injury to the substance. The treatment of a concussion is to rest and keep yourself hydrated.

Symptomatic treatment is also warranted for example, if you have a headache, take tylenol.

This will last its course unfortunately. But the key is to not over exert yourself during this time period as that might make it last longer.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!
