Hi, I'm 17 years old, and I got a minor concussion roughly a week ago. Most of the symptoms went away after 2 days, but I still was sleeping more than usual, and I would get a very mild headache for about 5 seconds 3-5 times a day. 4 days after the incident, when I was experiencing the symptoms I just described, and drank a soda mixed with wine. I didn't drink too much (6 to 10 ounces). I'm concerned that this alcohol with cause permanent effects on my brain. Is this a valid concern? Thanks
The effects of the alcohol should not be permanent. The main concern is that the effects of the alcohol can magnify the effects of a concussion causing a coma or mask the presence of a serious head injury such as a bleed in the brain. However, the alcohol is usually metabolized after several hours. All that said, don't drink alcohol. You are 17 years old. It is illegal and starting alcohol consumption early places you at a greater risk of alcohol related accidents and alcoholism as you mature into adulthood. I would recommend getting an evaluation with your primary care physician regarding any persistent symptoms and also ask them to screen you for alcohol abuse/alcoholism risks.
