How can a concussion be treated?
In my scenario I have a male in the mid forties who suffers a great blow to the head resulting in a concision. As I understand it, the danger sings with a concision are headaches, drowsiness or inability to wake up, vomiting or nausea - if I have misunderstood any of this I'd be thankful if you'd correct me.
My actual question is how a concision is treated? I can't seem to find anything online other than "go to a doctor". Are there any medications involved? Any treatments, or is it simply to rest and hope it heals itself?
Thank you for your time, and I hope you have a nice day.
Loss of consciousness is the hallmark symptom.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
Brief loss of the consciousness is the hallmark symptom of a concussion.
Inability to wake up goes beyond the concussion and may indicate greater brain damages and in this case, or other complications, urgent evaluation by a Doctor and brain imaging is necessary.
Besides rest, eating healthy and observation, drugs that may be used in cases of concussion include ibuprofen or other painkillers, anti-vomiting drugs, etc.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
