Default should I be worried?

I almost can't believe this happened again. Anyway for you who don't know I got a concussion March 5th. After sitting out for a while I got released to play my sport again about 3 weeks ago. Last week I got knocked out and received another concussion. I was down for about 30 seconds. Been dealing with headaches,nausea, dizziness, tiredness, light sensitivity, and jacked up memory. I have notice a worsening of symptoms and have started to experience a feeling of pressure in my head. Has anybody had an increased intracranial pressure a week after a concussion? Maybe I just need to rest more.

I can believe it happened again- after the first concussion it seems we are more vulnerable. A vicious cycle.

I've had inracranial pressure after my concussion. I think most of us have.

Resting more is crucial, especially after the second one.

I'm praying you don't have second impact syndrome.

Do not worry, but trust in the Lord. Seek medical help if needed & you are able to. Hang in there. I'm just keeping you company til the mega-posters pop in.
