or should I say mr Med Student.
1. I am not a medical student. I graduated from medical school in 1994.
2. I am not a Mr. Nice sexist assumption though. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, given your "Suzy Homemaker" comment. News flash, women can be both physicians and hockey fans.
And you jumped to a whole lot of other conclusions regarding headaches. The primary issue I have been addressing is the fact that loss of consciousness with a head injury equals mild traumatic brain injury, AKA concussion. I mentioned headache in that it can also be a symptom of concussion. Certainly if someone has a headache after a head trauma, one should consider other causes, but persistant headache that started with the trauma and does not have another explanation would be considered evidence of concussion. As would nausea/vomiting, mental status changes, confusion, etc. But if you go back and read my post, I did not say that headache after head trauma always equals concussion. I said that it CAN BE a symptom. You are the one who made that an absolute.
With no loss of consciousness, you are correct in that it is not black and white. That is where clinical judgement and careful history taking is important, to try to tease out if the symptoms are caused by the head injury.
With loss of consciousness with associated head trauma, it absolutely is black and white. And that was the reason I posted the two definitions that have been published in peer-reviewed journals. That you are ignoring.
