Concussions
Hi, I have often worried about my previous head injuries from football and other activities. I have had several concussions most of them mild but a few severe, but none since my last football game in 2005. However, recently I was experiencing a constant headache for several weeks. I wasn't sure if it was caffine withdrawls or something more serious. It has since stopped, should I be worried? Also, due to the previous concussions am I at a higher risk of getting alheizemers?

Hi,

Repeated concussions can lead to chronic headaches later on although it is quite possible that the headache that you experienced was due to caffeine withdrawal.  

There are some studies that suggest repeated concussions can accelerate alzheimer’s disease in some individuals. Although nothing has been proved conclusively so far.
