Patient :My 22 year old sister was cleaning last night and hit her head. She knocked herself unconscious. When she woke up her head was pounding and she was really sleepy so she went to sleep. This morning she said her head is pounding but doesn't want to see a doctor because she's worried that it isn't serious enough to go. She is also a college soccer player and has suffered concussions before. Do you think she should go to the doctors?
