Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

In post concussion syndrome, symptoms like headache and dizziness may last for weeks and sometimes months after the injury that caused the concussion.

For the headaches, pain killers can be prescribed but for the loss of balance and difficulties with attention, physical and behavioral therapy may e needed. Even cognitive behavioral therapy which is a type of psychotherapy for disturbed emotions is also helpful.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
