POST CONCUSSION SYNDROME is the collection of symptoms that occur after a concussion injury.
Many concussions resolve without any long term chronic symptoms. However, the symptoms of the concussion often get progressively worse over a period of days and even months after a head trauma. Mayo Clinic reports that concussions often get progressively worse over a 7-10 day period. Other reliable medical source say that concussion symptoms can get worse over a much longer period of time, even weeks, months or years.
The classic symptoms included in a post concussion syndrome include the following:
generalized confusion and disorientation,
tinnitus (ringing of the ears)
Postconcussion syndrome often follows after whiplash injury. Statistics show that nearly 60% of the victims of car accident injuries experience a concussion injury and develop postconcussion syndrome.
