Default Any experiences with concussions worsening ADHD symptoms?

My school-aged son has a bleeding disorder, as well as ADHD. I do not feel soccer is a safe sport for him, as the rough play in soccer is known to result in repeated concussions and/or TBI's. His father is not concerned. Does anyone have any information or experience regarding concussions sustained in childhood worsening ADHD symptoms? Also, how rough is the sport, even outside of heading the ball?

Concussions and ADHD are a mixed bag. Most experts say ADHD meds are counter to good concussion recovery.

A very small number has found ADHD meds to be beneficial to a recovering brain.

Concussions can reduce the brain's ability to ignore sensory stimuli/distractions. This can made ADHD worse.

The risks in soccer for concussion are:
1. Heading the ball
2. Getting hit in the head by a hard kicked ball.
3. Hitting head to head against an opponent. More common than you would expect.
4. Getting kicked in the head by a high kick.

Some leagues outlaw high kicks and heading the ball.... ???

If he has extra risk from a brain bleed because he has a bleeding disorder, I would be extra cautious about soccer.

Years ago, this forum had large numbers of members who were having serious struggles after getting concussions playing soccer.
