    I was at the barn yesterday riding and my horse spooked. I got told that I kinda fell of the back of my horse.I was told that I landed sort of on my side and twisted and rolled and landed on my back.At first I got back on saying I was fine but after my ride I got off and I started getting a major migraine.I later got home and told my mom I feeling kind of nauseous.I also told my mom that I was feeling kinda of whiplash like symptoms.My question is how long does it take for symptoms of a concussion to occur?I told my mom about it and she told me not to waste my money by going to the doctors for something I already know I have.My question is should I go behind her back and make a drs appointment?knowing full well that they'll bill her for xrays,etc cuz im still on her insurance?or should i just say its minor and move on?

    For one, medical advice is a no-no here. For two, they'll give you pain meds, most likely nasal spray for a migraine. If you're worried, talk to your Dr.
