Hello, I am a 15 year old girl and about


Q: Hello, I am a 15 year old girl and about 2 years ago I suffered from a major concussion from soccer that lasted for 11 months. I constantly had all of the common concussion symptoms and also had some minor nerve damage due to whiplash. Since then, I have experienced two scenarios where I hit my head again in sporting events. The first time it happened, I immediately felt dizzy and nauseous and had a headache and dizziness for about a week after. Just yesterday, I hit my head again and I am now suffering from these symptoms again. I am wondering if it is common that after a concussion you become more susceptible to the symptoms of a concussion even though you may not have one. Since I didn't hit my head very hard yesterday, I don't think I have another concussion. Is it possible that I'm gonna constantly have concussion symptoms following every slight hit to the head all throughout my future?
