How can I tell if my daughter's behavior is normal after a concussion

My 16 yr old daughter got a concussion during lacrosse practice on Wednesday, she is went from being very friendly and loving and happy to extremely Moody and emotional. I know this is normal but is there anything I can do to help her? Lately I find myself having to walk away and take a deep breath and remind myself that this is not her normal behavior and only because of the concussion. She is out of school because we are in a wedding this week, we got the go ahead to go and got her school work that she will be missing. I am reading her work to her because reading makes her headaches worse but she doesn't remember what I read as soon as I finish. Is this normal? I am concerned and frustrated and looking for advice.

Having memory problems this far out is not normal and should be checked out by a neurologist.
