Concussion and broken nose, nausea, memory loss

How long after a concussion is it normal to still be feeling nauseous and have difficulty with memory, balance etc. I got hit in the face with a softball 11 days ago and am still nauseous. Cannot stand on one leg with eyes closed, and have forgotten things like PIN numbers, passwords etc. is it too soon to expect these symptoms to be gone, or should I go back to the drs. I did also break my nose, which was realigned under local anaesthetic 6 days ago. No LOC. No actual vomiting.

Yes those are the common symptoms of brain concussion make sure you post in the neurology forum as well
The fact that you can't do a proprioceptive sensory exercise means that your internal system of the brain got affected sometimes can be shock sometimes can be severe that's why is really important to check with your doctor regarding internal bleeding and so on. If I were you I would go to the doctor again and do a regular check up in the case everything is ok trying to rebuild like a puzzle don't do complex exercises for a while do simple exercises to increase your heArt rate and your physical conditioning.,practice meditation and make sure your stress levels are under control after two weeks of training at a mild intensity start incorporating complex exercises such as balance or coordination or sensory and increase aerobic to anaerobic and see how you feel at this point make sure that you really think of buliding the house from the ground not from the roof hope you feel better

Thank you for the advice. My GP sent me back to ER for another assessment. Balance with my eyes closed is still poor, but they are comfortable it is just concussion/shock and not bleeding. I will try to take it easy for sure. Thanks again.
