Do I Have a Concussion?

If you have sustained a head injury and are exhibiting symptoms of a concussion, you must seek medical attention immediately.

Brain injury experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have listed several symptoms and observable behaviors that signify a possible concussion. Although you should never attempt to diagnose a concussion on your own, your answers to the questions in this survey can indicate a concussion.
