Interesting article sourced by John Barclay of his experience of the above on the Wales Online web-site. It seems even the brain experts find it difficult to explain some of the symptoms

Eif, now, I try and defend you to a certain extent as a lot of people just read your name and form an opinion regardless of what youíve written.

But come on, help yourself, if you want to discuss an article which could spark some interesting chat, at least put a link up to it!

I stopped playing rugby because of it, itís a very unorthodox and challenging health problem. Disorientated, changes your mood etc you also kind of feel defenceless because another slight knock and youíre gone again for a few weeks. Itís not fun !

I had my last concussion on Feb 4th this year, I donít know if itís because Iím pushing 40 now or because itís now a more talked about subject, but for the first time I took it seriously, it is horrible, I was still feeling the symptoms well over a week later

It wasnít the thing that has stopped me playing another injury has (hopefully temporarily) put an end to that, but the amount of information available now certainly helped with recovery and with making a decision about continuing
