Suffered a concussion, dizziness while travelling, nose bleeds. Due to concussion?

My roommate got a concussion during a rugby game last week. She just said she didn t know how she was going to play this weekend because just riding the bus home from campus, making the turns and such was making her dizzy. Upon returning home, we were in the kitchen and she blew her nose and blood came out. Do these things coincide with the previous concussion?

Thank you for posting your query.

Dizziness is common after mild head injury and concussion. This may get aggravated with head or neck movements. Usually, this resolves on its own in a few days. For symptom relief (from dizziness), she may take betahistine.

Regarding bleeding from nose on blowing, possibly it is not related to the head injury, it is more likley to be due to a local nose problem. If nose bleeding repeats, she may consult an ENT doctor.
