Still today I am sometimes dizzy when I walk, nausea , constant headache , can t remember stuff from day before. And I m tired tired tired. I m wondering if I should exercise more, walk even though I m dizzy? Would that help? Is this normal?

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Post concussion syndrome can last for many weeks to months and even for a year.
Headache,nausea,irritability,difficulty concentration,dizziness are common symptoms of this problem.
Management of post-concussion syndrome typically involves rest and potentially psychotherapy to address emotional difficulties.Specific symptoms may also be addressed,for example, people can take pain relievers for headaches and medicine to relieve depression, dizziness,or nausea. Rest is advised, but is only somewhat effective.
Majority of symptoms of post concussion syndrome disappear with time and person becomes all right.
Consult a neurophysician for your symptoms and get managed properly.
He may ask for a MRI brain,which in general comes out normal.
