After a head to head hit in a recent football game, I got a slight stiffness/crick in my neck that soon went away. No other symptoms. Head concussion?
YouGotACrickcussion: If you have no symptoms now you're sitting pretty!And just a little neck stiffness does not qualify as a true concussion. More like a neck strain.With a concussion, the brain gets a good bounce inside the skull & you'd be left with a headache & other symptoms.You may or may not have blacked out,but the symptoms last a while, sometimes a long while. The spinal cord can experience something similar. ...Read more

Exam: In general, by keeping the injured person awake, it allows for others to watch them closely in case the injured person begins to display neurologic changes early and allow for a more prompt trip to the hospital. If someone is sleeping, it would be much more difficult for an observer to know if the injured person is deteriorating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not much: Unless your head injury was severe enough to cause brain damage at the time, and i'm guessing not as you are able to be online asking this question, you should not develop new brain problems now. If there was focal brain damage at the time, there is always a risk of seizure after several months but this is exceedingly low. ...Read more
What to do if I could not smell or taste due to a head injury is there a name for this condition y?
Ansomia: This is common after even a relatively mild head injury & is related to disruption of the olfactory nerves (the sense of smell nerves). They are easily damaged as they pass through the base of the skull between the eyes. Unfortunately, recovery from this is rare. Other than not being able to smell smoke, the condition is not dangerous. Taste is involved because much of your taste is assoc w/ smell ...Read more

My 15 month old is constantly falling and bumping his head pretty hard everytime. He just gets way ahead himself. Should I be concerned with head injury?
Maybe: Toddlers fall and bump their heads all the time. Most of the time it just helps them learn not to fall and bump their heads. If a child does it excessively though, or is doing it repeatedly with enough force to cause significant injury (more than just bump, cry, then go back to playing), then an evaluation of gross motor skills and/or neurologic development might be warranted from your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
