About 2 weeks ago exactly from today I had received a concussion from a kid who hit me in the head 15 times, 10 were punches and 4-5 were kicks. I was feeling woozy after the fight only to find out when I get back to my girlfriends that I had a concussion. The mom was an EMT and said I had a mild concussion: different sized pupils, fatique, trouble thinking, weak arms/legs, inability to stand, dizzyness. So I waited it out, someone kept my awake and if I had passed out they said I'd go to the hospitle.
So I went to sleep about 6 hours later (big mestake, but I felt a little better.) I went to my house the next day and told my parents and they brought me to the ER the day after (3 days after initial concussion.) So when I went they gave me a CT and said I had a 3rd degree concussion and that for 2 weeks I should limit activity. So to put the point in perspective in about 5 days I'm supposed to go to New Jersey (12 hours from my house.) to stay at my girlfriends..
I know for a fact there will be heavy drinking and I'm wondering if I kept my limit to 12-20 beers instead of my usual 20-30 beers then I would be ok? I'm 6'1, 220LB and I'm 19 years of age. I usually drink decent in my age and I only do it socially.. but I really need to know because I'm going to do it anyways I just want to be safe about it.
I'm also hoping to go for another CT tommorow or something for a checkup...
