If you’ve recently suffered a concussion, we advise that it will probably take you at least 1 – 2 weeks before you start feeling completely back to your normal self again. The good news is that if you’re managing your concussion from home, you’re well on the road to a full recovery. However, how long it takes will depend on various factors, such as your age, the severity of the concussion, and your health before the head trauma. 

If you or someone you know has recently experienced a blow to the head, it’s wise to check for symptoms of concussion and consult a medical expert just to be on the safe side. However, many of us do occasionally hit our heads without any serious consequences – so how do we know when it’s time to get down to the emergency room?
