Head injury, mild concussion, fatigue. Can i fly with healing concussion?
I had a mild concussion two months ago. I still seem to have symptoms like fatigue and the side of my head that took the impact tells me exactly where I hit it. I am going on a long haul flight to Europe from the west coast of N. America in a month s time and a short haul over the rockies in two weeks time. What is your advice for flying in a pressurized cabin with healing concussion?
Hello, If your Ct scan was clear after the head injury, and you only just had a concussion, there there should be no problem with flying. Any signs of dizziness, vomitting, blackouts need immediate medical attention.
