"When the symptoms are there, my experience has been that they are pretty apparent." Baggins
Baggins has it ever occurred to you that the world -especially brain injury -does not revolve around you and your experience?
I mean,I know you think and act like you know it all but your rationale is ridiculously narcissistic and totally idiotic.
Brain injury facts:
Because the brain is very complex, every brain injury is different. Some symptoms may appear right away, while others may not show up for days or weeks after the concussion. Sometimes the injury makes it hard for people to recognize or to admit that they are having problems.
The signs of concussion can be subtle. Early on, problems may be missed by patients, family members, and doctors. People may look fine even though they’re acting or feeling differently.
Because all brain injuries are different, so is concussion recovery. Most people with mild injuries recover fully, but it can take time. Some symptoms can last for days, weeks, or longer.
"I'm not saying they aren't being honest. But can you say with any certainty that they always are? That's been my point all along. It starts with the player being honest." Baggins
Yes,you are.That is exactly what you are saying and you are an insincere blowhard for even suggesting it,never mind posting it .Do five minutes of research before blabber mouthing,Baggins.
"On the other hand doctors don't rely on the the patient telling them how they feel at all. They can tell just by looking at you that you have a headache." Baggins
Yeah,more wise words from Baggins- the CDC trained neuorologist.
The signs of concussion can be subtle...problems may be missed by patients, family members, and doctors.
Remember, you can’t see a concussion and some athletes may not experience and/or report symptoms until hours or days after the injury.

Types of Brain Injury
- A concussion can be caused by direct blows to the head, gunshot wounds, violent shaking of the head, or force from a whiplash type injury.
- Both closed and open head injuries can produce a concussion. A concussion is the most common type of traumatic brain injury.
- A concussion is caused when the brain receives trauma from an impact or a sudden momentum or movement change. The blood vessels in the brain may stretch and cranial nerves may be damaged.
- A person may or may not experience a brief loss of consciousness (not exceeding 20 minutes). A person may remain conscious, but feel “dazed” or “punch drunk”.
- A concussion may or may not show up on a diagnostic imaging test, such as a CAT Scan.
- Skull fracture, brain bleeding, or swelling may or may not be present. Therefore, concussion is sometimes defined by exclusion and is considered a complex neurobehavioral syndrome.
- A concussion can cause diffuse axonal type injury resulting in permanent or temporary damage.
- It may take a few months to a few years for a concussion to heal.
Diffuse Axonal Injury (TBI)
Coup-contre coup injury (TBI)
Second Impact Syndrome (TBI)
Open and Closed Head Injuries
Penetrating Injury (TBI)
Shaken Baby Syndrome (TBI)
Locked in Syndrome (TBI)
Anoxic brain injury (ABI)
Hypoxic brain injury (ABI)
Has it ever occured to you that players may be aware they have the symptoms and not be forthcoming about the injury? It has happened you know. But instead of admitting that, please give me more info on head injuries. It really proves that players would never ever be less than honest about being injured.
So I guess players pulled and sent to a specialist every time they bump their heads. How's that solution?
