The symptoms of concussion/MTBI (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury) can vary quite markedly. Some people only suffer from mild symptoms. While others experience severe difficulties.

To make matters even more complicated, the time frame over which symptoms from a concussion/MTBI can last range from only a few hours to years. And there are even a few unfortunate people  who go on to suffer from symptoms on a permanent basis.

Alright, why don't we talk about the actual symptoms a person would experience if they've suffered a concussion/MTBI.

The symptoms can be grouped into four primary categories:

1. Thinking and Remembering;

2. Physical;

3. Emotional; and

4. Sleep

So lets have a look at some of the most common symptoms within each of these four categories

Thinking and Remembering

A. Not thinking clearly;

B. Thinking slowly;

C. Problems with concentration;

D. Inability to retain new information

Physical

D. Problems with balance

E. Nausea
