Characteristics Of a Delayed Concussion

Characteristics Of a Delayed Concussion

You might believe that a concussion would be difficult to overlook. Following a head injury, the symptoms are obvious: nausea, headache, and dizziness. If you don’t immediately feel concussion symptoms, you could assume you don’t have one and carry on as usual. That presumption, though, can prove to be a fatal one. A concussion might not be apparent right away depending on the cause of your accident and its seriousness.

Indications of a delayed concussion

You might believe that a concussion would be difficult to overlook. Following a head injury, the symptoms are obvious: nausea, headache, and dizziness. If you don’t immediately feel concussion symptoms, you could assume you don’t have one and carry on as usual. That presumption, though, can prove to be a fatal one. A concussion might not be apparent right away depending on the cause of your accident and its seriousness. The best approach to ensure you receive the care you require when you most need it is to become knowledgeable about delayed concussion symptoms.

How Can Symptoms of a Concussion Be Postponed?

Although many individuals are unaware of it, delayed concussion symptoms are more common than you may imagine. It’s helpful to grasp how concussions function in order to comprehend where delayed concussion symptoms originate.

When your head or body sustains a strong impact, a concussion happens. This can apply to injuries sustained in sports as well as from slips and falls. When your head or neck is moved quickly, your brain may twist or shift unexpectedly inside of your skull, leading to a concussion. When this takes place, brain cells may be damaged, leading to the visible signs of a concussion.

The origin and effect of a concussion are frequently obvious. Delay in the onset of concussion symptoms can occur in some circumstances, though:

Dizziness and nausea are two concussion symptoms that are noticeable right away. Memory loss is one of the concussion symptoms that can be more difficult to identify. Since every concussion is unique, it is possible for someone to have a concussion that isn’t immediately noticeable but nonetheless exists.

Sometimes concussions result in brain damage that takes time to manifest in daily life. Although concussion symptoms normally subside within a few weeks, for some people they worsen when the injury begins to affect their mental abilities.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that each concussion is unique, and only a doctor can determine if you have experienced one or not. Don’t ignore it if you believe you may have a concussion!

How Can I Treat Reported Concussion Symptoms That Come Later?

What symptoms indicate a concussion? Among the symptoms are the following:

  • Headaches and nausea
  • Dizziness
  • “Brain fog,” or persistent daytime cognitive challenges
  • A sensitivity to light and noise
  • An earache that ringers
  • Unstable emotions (extreme anger, melancholy, or other new emotional problems)
  • Having trouble focusing or remembering things

You should get an immediate assessment from a concussion specialist if you are having these problems. You could still be dealing with delayed concussion symptoms, which would benefit from medical care, even if it has been days or weeks since the initial injury.

The next step should be to contact a concussion specialist if you believe you may be experiencing delayed concussion symptoms. To get professional advice on diagnosis, treatment, and more, go to your local health centre.
