First off im 23 years old 6 142 lbs no prior medical complications. Did have one mild concussion in 2006 when i was 17.I just played a ice hockey game was skating about 6 to 7 mph when i was trippped and fell head first into the metal post. The position i was in on contact was basiclly knees on the ground body and head paralell to the ground and the post ht my helmet on the top of the head right in the middle.

Dear Mlester, hello.
The injury you have mentioned can result in concussion. But it will be symptomless if you give full rest to your body. Usually it takes few days to weeks to completely recover.
If your symptoms still persists consult a neurophysician and have a CT Scan done.
Thanks and take care.
