Symptoms to track after concussion

A while ago, a friend's daughter took a tumble during a skating lesson that resulted in a nasty concussion. Her pediatrician recommended a lengthy recovery period and a strict regimen of rest, including several weeks off from school, zero screen time, and no heavy thoughts!

Curious about how to heal bruised, young brain, I found and shared this article. If you find yourself caring for a child with a mild concussion, please make sure to track these symptoms for a good while after the injury:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Double or blurred vision
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering
  • Sleep disturbances
