Concussions in Children: Symptoms

Some signs of concussion are headache, vomiting, nausea, trouble thinking normally, memory problems, trouble walking, dizziness, fatigue, and mood changes. Dr. Fernando Mendoza, Medical Director of the Emergency Department at Baptist Children's Hospital, says dizziness is one of the most common presenting symptoms for concussion.

He also explains it is not precised to get them to focus on you, because unless they have a really severe head injury, they are not going to have something wrong with the vision.
