Concussion Symptoms

  • Headache/Confusion
  • Difficulty remembering
  • Hard to pay attention
  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Slow reaction time
  • Double vision/blurriness
  • Bothered by noise/light
  • Feeling emotionally “down”

Why Report Your Symptoms?

Competing or sparring with concussion symptoms is dangerous. It can lead to a longer recovery and a delay in your return to action. In rare cases, repeated concussions in athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to your brain. They can even be fatal.

What Should I Do If I Think I Have a Concussion?

  • Don’t Hide It, Report It
  • Get Checked Out
  • Take Care of Your Brain

All concussions are serious.

Don’t hide it. Report it. Take time to recover.

It’s better to stop one match than your career.
