    Recent Concussion

    I hit my head on the ice in a hockey game 8 days ago. My doctor said I have a concussion and gave me prescriptions for pain and for a muscle relaxer. I didn't have a CT scan done because the doctor didn't think there was any bleeding, but said that I should come back in, if the headache got worse.

    I never lost consciousness, but I felt lightheaded and nauseous, the night of the game. Eight days later I still have a headache (feels like a head cold, but without having a cold). I'm sure the recovery time varies from one incident to the next, but does anyone have experience with this that may give me some idea as to whether this is normal and how long it may continue?

    Thank you!
