How to cure post concussion syndrome

I have been suffering from post concussion syndrom since I wiped out and hit my head snowboarding in January. I still have headaches almost all the time and when my headache is really bad I get dizzy as well. It's really hard for me to sit still and let myself recover as I'm really athletic and I'm a 16 year old girl. It's really hard for my to concentrate in school because I have trouble reading the board and my classes get really loud sometimes and I don't low what to do anymore. I want to get back to sports I'm sitting out of rugby right now and I would like to play by the end of may so how can I heal fast I'm going to a kids concussion specialist next week but I'm scared I won't be able to play and sports or do anything ever again.

This was my third concussion in less then a year I had one April of 2013 one November of 2013 and then the last one January of 2014 what will the doctor say what will he be able to do for me I want to play bad how can I get back In my feet and playing what I live ASAP thanks in advance

I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. A concussion can last for weeks or maybe years after the head injury. The symptoms too vary from person to person. Headache, confusion, memory loss, dizziness, nausea vomiting, slurred speech and fatigue are common. Delayed symptoms include depression, irritability, sleep disturbances, seizures, loss of smell etc. A doctor generally looks for focal neurological or generalized neurological symptoms that would show there is a pressure on brain somewhere. In absence of these symptoms and based on the history a diagnosis of concussion is given.
So, what I am basically trying to tell is that you must consult a doctor and get a detailed neuro-psychological assessment. The based on this assessment, your doctor (neurologist or a neuro-psychiatrist) may be able to deal with your concentration issues, anxiety and traumatic brain injury. You also need an eye examination. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
