Concussions & Alcoholism

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) leads to numerous problems, including alcoholism and suicide. New findings indicate that endocannabinoids aid TBI recovery: When researchers boosted 2-AG levels shortly after injury, rats displayed less anxiety and less interest in alcohol. This is significant since alcoholism is a serious comorbidity of brain injury.

Nausea

Nausea is a feeling of sickness with an inclination to vomit. Nausea may be symptomatic of many conditions, including infection, food poisoning, motion sickness, overeating, blocked intestine, illness, concussion or brain injury, appendicitis, and migraines. They can also be a reaction to medications.
