Couple of years ago I had an accident when a pretty big person fell on my neck in the pool.X-rays showed nothing. Can that injury be causing dizziness?

Depends: Tough question to answer in 400 characters but if you suffered what we would consider an injury to the brain itself such as a concussion or if stretch receptors in your neck were unduly affected because of the accident, etc. then, maybe your symptoms are related. However, the more likely possibility is that something else is causing the problem. You should talk to a doctor who can examine you. ...Read more

I had two concussions within a year from bumping my head. Am I likely to ever feel the same again. As in no more headaches, and brain fog.

I had two concussions within a year from bumping my head. Am I likely to ever feel the same again. As in no more headaches, and brain fog.

Depends: recovery from concussion depends on a number of factors including who you were before the concussion as well as how severe the concussions were, and age. The number of concussions experienced and how close they are together also matters. it's important to be sure that you weren't having headaches or brain fog prior to the concussions because that could mean you have migraine which is treatable. ...Read more

A few weeks: The wound should heal within just 2 - 3 weeks. The skull fracture should largely heal within 4 - 8 weeks, depending on each individual's health condition. Most of the pain from the fracture should resolve within just 2 - 3 weeks. Mvas can cause associated soft tissue injury that can take longer to treat/heal. ...Read more

I was in a car accident 24 hours ago. Neck wasn't hurting at that moment but now it's  having pain. Could this be a form of whip lash ?

Anti inflammatory drugs and muscle relaxers work best ...Read more

I suffered from a head injury on 18 November 2014, and underwent a surgery. I am recovering well and was thinking about going to a holiday in hilly areas. Can any complication arise due to my past injury?

I suffered from a head injury on 18 November 2014, and underwent a surgery. I am recovering well and was thinking about going to a holiday in hilly areas. Can any complication arise due to my past injury?

Well, yes: Paul, it all depends on the type of injury you had. Sounds pretty serious if you had surgery! Be sure that your doctor or the surgeon is OK with whatever you are planning to DO in those "hilly areas", and obviously use all precautions (like a helmet) if you are doing anything dangerous, even biking. Good luck! ...Read more

From : From your description your last evaluation was 10 years ago. If you have not been examined by an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) recently, another evaluation would be a good idea. Something may have changed in your eye. Perhaps you have developed glaucoma which may need treatment. There continue to be advances in technology that may offer the possibility of better comfort and even better eyesight. ...Read more

I had a concusion last year due to a work related accident struck my head in the same area since then been having headaches everyday. What to do?

Concusion: If you have not had head imaging (ct or mri) done, you may need to do that. If those are negative, you will be prescribed treatment for your headaches. Post concussion headaches may be a challenge to treat, but in the experienced hands, you may be helped. ...Read more

Maybe not?: Certainly repetitive head trauma can cause problems but what if there is something else going on too? You would not want to miss that "something else". Seek care with your doctor and preferably a specialist for concussion. ...Read more

4 years ago a guy hit me on top of neck  (closed fist) got dizzy stayed awake can it cause something  now like an injury?

Doubtful: If there was no serious injury 4 years ago, it is unlikely that a new complication will develop now. If you had suffered a concussion (loss of consciousness) or some injury to your spine at the time, that would be a different story. ...Read more
