    I need help & any advice anyone is willing to give me. I recently got a concussion (November 8th)...I am still in some major pain, and have a lovely bump/bruise on my forehead. Has anyone else ever dealed with a concussion before? How long until it fully heals? Should I go to school on Monday?

    How did you get the concussion? Did you black out? Did you go to the hospital after it happened? Do you have any memory loss? If you're still in major pain throughout today and tomorrow I would go to the doctor rather than school on Monday. From what I understand it could take days, maybe weeks or even months to heal depending on how bad it is. I'm sorry you're in so much pain and I hope you feel better soon! Hope this helps :)

    Seems your pain was several days already. Really better that you seek medical advice about it. It would not be normal if it remains that hurtful after several days. If your school have a "good" clinic, better go first day before going to any of your class. Or go to the nearest clinic in your community for you to know your condition well.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I already went to my school's clinic, and was told that I had a concussion and needed to go home. I went home and was taken to the ER for a CT scan which looked normal, and was told once again that I had a concussion. I didn't black out or go unconscious, I just smacked myself in the head really hard accidently.

    Aw, that must have been painful for you. And yes, I too would suggest you consult an specialist just to be sure that everything's alright. Do it before you go back to school, for you will never know when you need to rest.

    Hope everything's fine. And please do keep us posted. :)
