If you or a loved one has suffered from a mild or severe concussion please know that there are symptoms that occur after the incident.
At Palm Beach Urgent Care, we can help you cope with symptoms from headaches, dizziness and mild disorientation.
The CDC offers advice about how to cope with symptoms and what to do about them if you seek medical care.
“Rest is very important after a concussion because it helps the brain to heal. Ignoring your symptoms and trying to “tough it out” often makes symptoms worse. Be patient because healing takes time. Only when your symptoms have reduced significantly, in consultation with your health care professional, should you slowly and gradually return to your daily activities, such as work or school. If your symptoms come back or you get new symptoms as you become more active, this is a sign that you are pushing yourself too hard. Stop these activities and take more time to rest and recover. As the days go by, you can expect to gradually feel better”.
