Slipped and fell on ice. Had nausea. Diagnosed with concussion. Excessive thirst. Symptom of concussion?

One week ago my wife slipped on the ice, fell and hit her head very hard. She had some nausea and blurry vision and made a trip to the hospital emergency room. A CAT scan was performed and no injury was noticed and a mild concussion was diagnosed. She has been excessively thirsty since the fall. Is the excessive thirst a symptom of a concussion?
