    What are the telltale signs of a concussion injury?


    What are the telltale signs of a concussion injury?

    A concussion is usually caused when you sustain a head injury. This could be from a slip, trip or fall, horse riding accident or something as simple as accidentally banging your head on a cupboard. While it can often be very hard to distinguish head injuries because of their nature, the telltale signs of a concussion injury can manifest rather early. So, what are these telltale signs and how can you recognise them?

    Dizziness and confusion after a head injury

    Concussions can occur after a number of injuries but one telltale sign is the onset of prolonged dizziness after suffering a head injury. If, for example, someone has suffered a slip, trip or fall whether it’s in a kitchen or out on a sports field, and their head has hit the ground with some force, they may be suffering from concussion.

    Sickness and headaches

    Other telltale signs of a concussion injury are headaches and sickness. If you have had a slip, trip or fall and the headache is severe or does not go away after a while, you should seek medical advice. As well as this, if you feel sick or are physically sick this could be another tell tale sign of a concussion injury and you should seek help as soon as possible.

    Mild concussion is not usually life threatening or particularly harmful in the long run but any of these telltale signs of concussion could point to a brain injury or internal bleeding which needs to be treated straight away.
