NPR: Concussions Can Be More Likely in Practices than in Games
It's Ok to need help or assistance if you're dealing with a recovery or are a caregiver. It's common for concussees to feel alone, or that they're the only one dealing with such a situation. That's not the case. You're not alone. I've pulled together many resources for help, both online and in-person. My comprehensive Big List spreadsheet has many listings:
For information about symptoms, see my CDC HEADS UP microsite page. It has much information for you about symptoms, prevention, and has materials you can download and customize. Information is direct from the CDC.
Important: A concussion can change in the first several days. Even if you've been cleared by a doctor or an emergency room, symptoms could change or worsen. If you have several concussions within a few days or a week or two, it could result in second impact syndrome (SIS), which could be fatal. If you have any questions or are wondering if you should call a doctor or go to the emergency room, review the information from the CDC on my microsite page to help make that determination. If you are a teen and are wondering what to do, tell someone: a parent, caregiver, family member, friend, coach, teacher or someone else.
