What Do I Tell My Employer?

I had a mild TBI last year and now my employer expects me to work as I had before my injury. I still have problems with fatigue, memory, and concentration but have no visible scars. My doctors classify my injuries as “mild.” How do I explain to my employer that my problems are real?
