It can be so many things, which is why concussions are often misdiagnosed or missed entirely. You could have the aforementioned symptoms, in addition to things like sensitivity to light, balance problems, ringing in your ears, and a whole host of other physical symptoms. Or, you could have nothing at all.

There's also cognitive problems, like memory loss and confusion. A lot of people report issues with depression and moodiness following concussions, even mild ones. But again, you could have none of those things.

It's a brain injury, so there's no telling for sure how it will or will not impact any given individual. That's why it's such a serious problem and one that bears close monitoring.
