NOT ALL CASES OF CONCUSSION CAUSE LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Dizziness, headache, nausea and confusion are the early symptoms of concussion. Anyone complaining of these symptoms should be removed from play. If someone is showing signs of neck pain, increasing confusion, repeated vomiting, seizures, weakness in the arms or legs, decreasing consciousness, severe or increasing headache, unusual behaviour change or double vision, then medical attention should be sought IMMEDIATELY. These are red flags and may be a sign of a more serious brain injury. Anyone who exhibits these symptoms should see a doctor, and may require hospitalisation and further investigations.
