Concussions

I suffered one last week, still having symptoms and might have re-done it last night in my lacrosse game. Just wondering if anyone has advice as far as rest, active recovery, or even experience in healing from one.

Thanks.

Re: Concussions

See a doctor. Do what he tells you. DO NOT mess around with self-diagnosis or Internet "wisdom," talk to a pro.

In particular, he will probably tell you to limit your activities until you are symptom-free.

Re: Concussions

Were your coaches and trainers aware of your first one? If so they should not have let you play again only a week later, especially if you still had symptoms. You were very susceptible to get #2 given those conditions.

See a doctor.

Re: Concussions

Forgot to mention I saw a doctor. Basically since I had one last year I've got some time before I can do a lot of stuff again. Like 3-4 weeks, but he only said for lacrosse.


Maybe I should reword my question- anyone whose had one, what did you do to keep fit, or improve recovery time?

Re: Concussions

Talk to your doc about that.
