Suffered with mild concussion. Would partaking in alcohol consumption, drugs or sex worsen it?

Hello, 2 nights ago I was involved in a conflict at a bar, resulting in a trip to the hospital, 3 stitches, a CT scan and a mild concussion . I was just curious about certain things that could possible effect the concussion, specifically will partaking in alcohol consumption and/or drugs (marijuana) worsen the concussion or possible be dangerous for it. As well as any sex or masturbation?

Hi There, thanks for asking. It is an interesting question. After concussion, it is useful not to overload your brain function. For example, it is appropriate not to focus/concentrate for a long time in study until several weeks after the concussion. That window period should be passed with low load of mental work. Having sex or masturbation is not harmful and it can be done as regular. If you find some sleep problem or low energy level after the concussion, they could be managed properly. It is appropriate to limit or abstain from alcohol and marijuana for the next several weeks. It will help for more rapidly regeneration of the brain cells and astrocytes which are responsible for the protection of rain cells. I wish you regain your health fast.
