No med school. Brother-in-law (actually ex-BiL) who is a doc. Brother and son who are in Nuc Med. Had several concussions myself (2 very severe, 1 I couldn't walk without help for over a week) so I know a lot about them. They caused migranes so severe that I'd black out. Light hurt, moving my head hurt. Nothing helped. I still suffer from dizzy spells and I now have the onset of Vertigo. It's in it's beginning stages but it only gets worse as you age and I'm only 45. Concussions are nothing to screw with, trust me.
Oh, and I can tell you from personal experience that getting on a plane after recently suffering a concussion is just a bad bad idea.
