Types of Pain and Problems

Post Concussion Syndrome

A concussion is trauma to the brain that does not necessarily require loss of consciousness. This condition is not life threatening. There are multiple causes of concussion: sports, car accidents, falls, etc. Sometimes, patients suffer from symptoms of headaches and dizziness a few days after the concussion that can last for months afterwards. Patients may experience other symptoms such as irritability, ringing in the ears, lack of focus, anxiety, fatigue, sleep disturbances, decreased libido, etc. Not everyone will develop post concussion syndrome. It is not exactly known why some suffer these symptoms after concussion, while others don’t. Treatment usually consists of rest and analgesics.
