Symptoms of a secondary concussive condition

When you incur a concussion in Illinois, you may think that your brain is healed as soon as you stop experiencing symptoms. However, sometimes you may develop a secondary condition called post-concussion syndrome. At the Law Offices of Mathys and Schneid, we know it is important for you to understand the symptoms of this condition.

You may think that you will only develop post-concussion syndrome if you experienced a severe concussion that made you lose consciousness. According to the Mayo Clinic, you may incur this condition even if your concussion was relatively mild. You may sometimes be more likely to have this syndrome if you are older. Additionally, some researchers think that you may be more prone to this condition if you have had post-traumatic stress disorder or depression in the past. Sometimes extremely stressful events in your life can also make it more likely that you may get post-concussion syndrome.

If you have post-concussion syndrome, you may experience a wide variety of symptoms. You may feel anxious or irritable and sometimes might be fatigued. Tinnitus, dizziness and insomnia can also be signs that you have this condition. In some situations, you may have headaches that feel similar to migraines. You may begin to experience symptoms within a week of incurring a concussion. These symptoms typically last about three months, although some may linger for up to a year.

Your case of post-concussion syndrome can often be completely different from another person’s. You may experience one or many symptoms and sometimes these symptoms can affect your life for years to come. More information about this subject can be found on our webpage.
