Caring for Your Concussion

When to Seek Medical Care?

Worsening symptoms may be a sign of a more serious injury. Go to the Emergency Department if headaches become more severe, pupils are unequal in size, or if you experience any of the following:
‣ Getting more and more confused
‣ Weakness/tingling in arms or legs
‣ Worsening headache
‣ Trouble walking
‣ Vomiting more than once
‣ Slurred speech
‣ Seizures
‣ Strange behaviour

After being diagnosed with a concussion, you should have a follow-up appointment with a healthcare professional within two weeks to be re-assessed.
