Krato Yeah you are totally right, sleep is the best healer for your typical concussion. It's when you really lost consciousness, you suffer from elongated amnesia, etc., that is when you must not sleep. Otherwise with a slight headache, pop an advil and get some sleep!

I hope the person who told you that false info was not a doctor as well.

That is most likely the worst information you have ever been told. If you sustained a concussion you are to be kept awake for the first 24hrs prevent slipping into a coma from possible brain swelling. Things that might indicate that you have more serious injury are vomiting, irritability, dizziness, etc, in addition to the cardinal signs of a concussion.

That's how people slip into comas.

Deacon Worrying about a concussion after you banged your head is kind of like unzipping your fly after you take a piss. Do the best you can to protect yourself ahead of time, take risks you deem acceptable, and if you're not sure, go see a doctor. They'll tell you if you have one, maybe do a cat scan. But they can't actually do anything FOR the concussion. Like cracked or broken ribs. So if you don't want to pay a medical bill for advice, jus get lots of rest, like you would for any other injury.
