THE SYMP­TOMS MAY NOT AP­PEAR FOR SEV­ERAL HOURS AF­TER THE IN­JURY

It may take 24 hours for the symp­toms of con­cus­sion to be­come ev­i­dent af­ter the ini­tial im­pact. It is pos­si­ble for a child to get a con­cus­sion with­out the par­ent or carer re­al­is­ing, so it is im­por­tant to ask about any knocks or bumps if some­one is com­plain­ing of dizzi­ness, nau­sea or headache.
