Post Concussive Syndrome: Signs and Symptoms

Post Concussive SyndromeUnfortunately, concussions are becoming rather commonplace, especially for those involved in contact sports. Since concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury, the TryMunity community offers support and education on the topic. If you have recently suffered a concussion and are still experiencing symptoms even after an extended period of time, you may be dealing with post concussive syndrome.

Signs of PCS

Concussions can cause significant trauma, which is why they are considered to be a TBI. The damage to your brain can result in symptoms that last for a long time and in some cases never go away. Signs that you may be dealing with post concussive syndrome include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Noise Sensitivity
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia

It can be extremely difficult to live with these physical and psychological issues, which is why getting support from a community is so essential. Some of the symptoms may last a lifetime, while others can be treated with medication.

Dealing With PCS

There is no cure for post concussive syndrome at this time, only treatment of the symptoms. It can be extremely frustrating to think that you may have to withstand years of pain and a life change as the result of one injury. Trying to deal with your diagnosis on your own can obviously be very difficult, but turning to the TryMunity community can help in a great many ways. Our community is full of like-minded individuals who want to both learn and educate people about PCS and other traumatic brain injuries. Visit today to join.
