Got head injury. Feeling nauseous and headache. Any risk?

Hello I had a concussion 1 week ago on the 17th and was knocked out for 1 minute and a half and tried to rise 5 more times and fell over. I went to hospital and they said rest for 2-4 weeks. On Sunday evening on the 23rd most of my symptoms were clear so I went for a surf for 2 hours and felt ok but not the best. The next day I was back to square 1 and had a bad headache and felt nauseous. Have I done any damage?

Hi Will,
Thanks for writing your query.

It takes few weeks for full recovery from symptoms of concussion injury.
You were a little early to resume activity and that too surfing. You should take complete and proper rest (also avoid watching television/computer and text messaging) for some more weeks even after you feel symptom free this time.

Consult a Neurophysician if your symptoms aggravate.

I hope this is helpful to you.
