Concussion or not?

On 09/26/2013, I had the following symptoms all day: Moderate headache, minor dizziness, nausea, slight difficulty concentrating, minor vision problems, irritability and personality changes (just wasn’t myself). I just assumed I was having an off day until I found a huge bump on my head while showering and my fiancé said it sounded like a concussion so I figured I hit my head in my sleep. The next day, in addition to the original symptoms, I felt groggy and exhausted, and hid minor vision and memory problems. They symptoms lasted for 4-5 days.
On 09/30/2013, I woke up with a severe headache and found 3 very sensitive bruises on my head. The headache persisted, along with dizziness, nausea, fatigue, irritability and personality changes, severe difficulty concentrating, severe memory problems, and moderate vision problems. I’ve also had severe issues with comprehension; I can barely understand English (my native language) when people are speaking to me and I have to ask them to slow down and/or repeat themselves several times before I get it. Also, the headache has been significantly more severe on the right side of my head and I’ve had ringing in my right ear.
Could these just be concussions? If so, how worried should I be about having two consecutive concussions? If not, what else might it be?

  • What's your diet like?Do you drink often and what family history of illnesses do you have?Another possible cause could be Hypoglycaemia.Having low glucose levels can cause these symptoms as the brain needs sufficient glucose as fuel so it would be a good idea to purchase a self kit from the pharmacy and check your glucose reading when you have these symptoms.
