Concussion and Temperature Sensitivity

Setting: Typical Medieval Fantasy World

Explanation: A young boy was knocked out in a cold cave, and when he woke up, he had most of the symptoms of concussion. My question is, assuming he isn't dangerously hypothermic, could his concussion affect how cold he feels?

Search Terms: I googled "Concussion" for the general symptoms of concussion, and searched for "temperature AND concussion", which got me a load of results on body temperature. I tried a service that looks through published journal articles, with no luck. When I tried "Concussion AND "Temperature Sensitivity", all I got was a rather vague "Wrong diagnosis" page.
