Day of answers: Guidelines for concussions

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released updated guidelines for concussions in children. The CDC says even a minor head injury should be taken seriously.

Children who are at least 6 years old who get a headache, nausea, or vomit after a head injury should see a doctor within two days of getting hurt, the CDC advises. Younger children should get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.

A doctor from ChoiceOne Urgent Care will join WMAR-2 News via Facebook Live Wednesday to answer your questions about concussions. Those Facebook Lives are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
