Can concussions cause lifelong problems?

  • Nick Sloan

    Thanks for the post. I’ve had lots of concerns about long term affects. I’ve had 9-10 concussions (if you trust the math of someone with multiple concussions) my first one stemming from a car accident when I was 10. I was on a bicycle and was run over by a car going 40mph. The second from a soccer match 5 years later which left a gash in my head. Others have come from fighting and rugby. I know of the major incidents that have rung my bell but I also wonder how smaller head contact has exacerbated my symptoms. I feel like I get agitated easily and loose my patience at work and home.
