Is your concussion serious?

If you're a resident of Maryland who's suffered from a recent head injury, it'll benefit you to keep a careful eye on it. It's a common mistake for people to believe that their concussions aren't severe when in reality, they can be much worse than anticipated. This underestimation can cause unnecessary pain and suffering.

Mayo Clinic lists out the many different symptoms of concussions. Some of these are temporary and fade quickly, and some of them can be indicative of heavier or more severe damage that require professional medical care. For example, dizziness and headaches are both quite common. However, extreme headaches, pressure, or vomiting can indicate larger areas of damage. If blood or clear fluid is draining from your ears or nose, this should be taken as a sign to get medical attention immediately.

It should also be noted that concussion symptoms can start to appear over the days following the initial accident. This means that even if you think you're in the clear, you may not be. Symptoms that appear over days can include fatigue, memory issues, trouble sleeping, light or sound sensitivities, and potential changes to your personality or mental state. Some people experience depression in the period after the accident, for example. Others can experience increased aggression or agitation.

In any case, you will want to see a doctor shortly after any injury to the head. It's difficult to gauge how severe a concussion is based on the first symptoms or how you feel, so professional treatment and examination is key to a swift recovery.
