Concussion

Concussion often results in a headache, but headaches due to a concussion will usually diminish with the passage of time. One must be concerned if the headache becomes progressively worse or is accompanied by drowsiness. This may be caused by a hemorrhage between the skull and the brain, and can be life-threatening. After a concussion, there may be temporary changes in mood and attention. Repeated concussions are very serious and can cause progressive changes in the brain.

Testimonial

Just a note of thanks to the NHF for hosting these helpful online seminars.  The recent "Fibromyalgia and Migraine" was the second Webinar I've attended, and I learned a great deal.

The Webinars are easy to log into, the presentations are professional, and the presenters do not "talk down" to their auditors. The NHF is apparently choosing subject matter experts with care, and the information is up-to-date. 

Again, thank you for the hard work. I look forward to future Webinars.
