Be on the lookout for signs of concussions in school sports

Back to school also means back to sports for many kids. Health officials are warning parents about the dangers of concussions.

According to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, because a child’s brain is still developing, a head injury can be more serious than one thinks. A concussion can happen anytime, anywhere — on the field, on the playground, at home or at school.

A child does not have to lose consciousness (pass out) to have a concussion. There are many signs associated with a concussion and a child may not show any symptoms until a few days after the head injury.

Signs and symptoms of a possible concussion after a head injury include:

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Clumsy movement or dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Memory loss
  • Tiredness
  • Upset stomach
  • Vision problems
  • Sensitivity to noise and light
  • Numbness or tingling anywhere on the body
  • Loss of balance or trouble walking
  • Feel mentally foggy, cannot think clearly or remember things
  • Slurred speech or other changes in speech
  • Be irritable or more fussy than usual
  • Act differently than normal (does not play, acts fussy, or seems confused)
  • Feel more emotional, like very sad or nervous
  • Change in sleeping patterns

Health professionals warn that some activities may worsen concussion symptoms.

These include normal activities like watching television, texting, playing video games and using a computer.

Reading and studying can be equally as stressful to the brain; therefore, school schedules may need to be modified if a child has a concussion.
