    So I play rugby, and got knocked out a month ago. Suffered semi-permanent headaches for a few weeks, plus occassional bouts of nausea and dizziness but it got a lot better. First game back last week and get kicked in the face and struggled to operate effectively. I forgot the names of set plays (am fly half so should be calling them!), felt in a fog, was all over the place so my coach hauled me off.

    I can't do any sport before my symptoms clear off and I'm struggling to concentrate on my finals revision. It has an effect on my mood - am a lot more irritable all the time, etc etc.

    Been diagnosed with Post Concussion Syndrome. Just wondering if anyone out there has had a similar experience? How long did your symptoms last? Doctor has told me a month or two, hopefully.
