I'm not a medical person (though I do have WFR certification), but aspirin is NOT recommended (nor are other NSAIDs) with a suspected concussion, bercause of the risk of bleeding.

Medical professionals can do much more than ask a few questions and suggest incorrect medication.
Going from my last experience.

We used to be made to watch an MRI safety video from tim-to-time of a work man entering an MRI room with a hammer. As he walks in and approaches that tube the fixed magnet pulls out his arm/hammer very forcefully, but he manages to keep hold of it. Then they turn on the variable magnetic and his arm starts rotating in circle, getting more and more violent. In the end, he lets go of the hammer and it flies through the air into the MRI tube at high speed into a strategically placed breeze block and smashes it to pieces!
