Concussion help please!!?
I recently banged my head 5 days ago, followed with a concussion. Whenever I have a rush of blood to the head or become intimate with my partner, my head goes into completely pain and I have to lie down for a good 30 minutes whilst this agonising pain leaves.
Does anyone know how long this will go on for or if I need extra help?

You should probably see a neurologist, but the short answer is that it just depends. Think of a snow globe that is shaken. Not all the snowflakes fall back down at the same rate. The same is true for a "shaken" brain. Some people get back to "normal" fairly quickly. Other people have serious, long-term issues.
What you describe is a sex migraine -- yep, that's a real thing. Read the article below:https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sex... protocol for a concussion includes no sport/physical activity (even sex), no screens, and even no reading until you have gone 24 hours without dizziness or a headache. Then, you slowly add things back in. For example, you might read the newspaper and see if that causes any issues. If not, then maybe you try watching a show on Netflix or do a little computer work or take a walk. Each day you increase your activities if you had no symptoms the day before. If you get symptoms form the activity, you stop that activity and go back a day to less strenuous activity.https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/providers/return_to_ac...
