Best Answer

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury. Your soft, pliable brain literally bumped the inside of your bony, sharp skull and caused damage. Bleeding may result and damage to cognitive functions are also possible.

You should stop resuming the activity or any physical activity that may put you at risk for concussion again. You run the risk of second impact syndrome and having far worse complications from reinjuring your brain.

The best thing to do is go to the hospital, get a CT scan to check for bleeds, then go home and rest. Resuming physical activity or mentally strenuous activity too soon after injury can have detrimental effects.
