What happens if you shake your head too much up and down? Will it cause brain damage?

In: 0

You’d have to shake your head extremely violently to actually cause brain damage. I’m not convinced you could physically do it with just your neck muscles, i.e. you’d have to actively hold your head and throw it about.

You can definitely give yourself a headache from it though. And make yourself dizzy. Pretty sure you could bruise your eyes from too much headbanging too.

I wouldn’t say it’s impossible to make yourself dizzy enough that you pass out either.
