I hate to say don't go, since I'm not there to trust my gut, but that's what I do with my kiddos - listen to my gut.
What are the signs of a concussion? (from webMD)
Concussions can be tricky to diagnose. Though you may have a visible cut or bruise on your head, you can't actually see a concussion. Signs may not appear for days or weeks after the injury. Some symptoms last for just seconds; others may linger.
Concussions are fairly common. Some estimates say a mild brain trauma is sustained every 21 seconds in the U.S. But it's important to recognize the signs of a concussion so you can take the proper steps to treat the injury.
There are some common physical, mental, and emotional symptoms a person may display following a concussion. Any of these could be a sign of traumatic brain injury:
* confusion or feeling dazed
* slurred speech
* nausea or vomiting
* balance problems or dizziness
* blurred vision
* sensitivity to light
* sensitivity to noise
* ringing in ears
* behavior or personality changes
* concentration difficulties
* memory loss
I'll like to repeat myself though: listen to your own instincts!!! If something is telling you this is different than all those other times he's hit his head, go to the ER.
