Are You Wondering if You Have a Concussion ?
Concussions are often complicated and sometimes difficult to diagnose since they do NOT typically show on imaging and scans. Concussions can also be scary, however, research has shown patients have a high chance of full recovery when concussion treatment is started within 7-14 days. The important thing to know is you are not alone. Here are some questions to ask yourself to help determine the potential that you have sustained a concussion.
The above symptoms are just a few of the red flags that could indicate you have sustained a concussion but is in no way an exhaustive list. Having all or none of these symptoms cannot rule out or rule in a concussion, but they are a good start until you are able to see a professional. Specific visual tests, neck strength and range of motion testing along with specific testing for your situation is necessary to be completed in order to come to a conclusive diagnosis.
