Fast forward to 2008, I don't remember it happening, but I took another puck to the helmet and started having massive migraines after I would play goalie after that. So I just quit, now I am working on coming back into playing, as a forward. I would make sure you get tested, the full testing may help. In the 90's they just scanned and my brain and told me to sit out.
Go see a specialist, and if you play, play for fun. There is no sense in making yourself a vegetable from going after a job......
Sorry to hear your situation. You had to quit full contact hockey after only one concussion? It must've been really serious.
