Soccer Header

Soccer Header

Yesterday during soccer, our daughter went up for a couple of headers (soccer term for flinging your head toward a high velocity ball in order to dominate the field despite possible dislodging of valuable brain matter). Afterward she experienced dizziness, headache, nausea and tiredness. Of course, these are all symptoms of mild concussion, so we were told to have her lay low for a few days and not to play soccer. In reading about concussions on the internet, I found these additional common symptoms: difficulty concentrating, blurry vision, irritability, and loss of memory. Suddenly it occurred to me, I’m not getting old, I just have a concussion!!!
