What causes headache and pressure in the head after suffering from a concussion?
No bleeding risk.
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.
The highest risk for a brain hemorrhage after trauma is in the first 24 hours, afterwards it is very unlikely. There are some rare exceptions but usually in the elderly or patients with conditions affecting coagulation, not young healthy individuals such as yourself.
Furthermore from a clinical point of view there is no indication of that either. Some headache after a hit on the head is to be expected, nothing unusual about that. It would be worrying only if a case of progressively increasing intense headache. Other accompanying symptoms to watch for would be vomiting, seizures, double vision or vision loss, weakness or numbness of the limbs on one side, confusion or changed in behavior.
So there is no indication of any bleeding which together with the fact that 36 hours have already passed makes the chances of getting a brain bleed close to zero.
I remain at your disposal for other questions.
