Gymnast concussion

Im a 14 yr old gymnast and yesterday (monday 25th aug) I tried a new flip (handspring front sault) and I landed on my neck/head…it was a little painful…and today I’ve been getting headaches about 4 times already. I get them for bout 5 - 10 mins and they come bout every hour! Do I have a concusion or something? and also what are the side afeects of concusions and the long/short term affects? Please please please help…your help is much much much appreciated :)

Answer #1

im going to the doctors but I want to know about what happened to me before I go…I dont think my kneck needs realigning but my head hurts heaps.

Simply a Rose to brighten your day,         And maybe lessen the cares in your way;         And also, too, to help you to know,         That in knowing you, many others grow!

  I’d suggest you visit a chiropractor. It could be that you put pressure on your neck’s nerves and/or bones and they could use realigning.

Answer #3

I don’t think you can know what really happened to you unless a doctor gives you a diagnosis.

Answer #4

X-rays might be a good idea…

Answer #5

ouch and I love the chiropractor…seriously, when they do that ‘neck’ bit - oooh the relief…

and be carefull…you only get one spinal cord…

Answer #6

Why don’t you go see a doctor? He/She would give better advice after actually examining you than anyone here.
