Can violent persistent coughing cause a concussion?

I’ve coughed so hard i’ve Passed out. Could chronic violent coughing over many years have the same effect as having multiple conclusion? How does it effect the brain over the years?

The answer is yes. Violent persistent coughing can cause you to pass out. This is called cough syncope. You will need to see a lung specialist to deal with this.
