Need appt. asap: You need to go the emergency dept as you may have a concussion and or even a more serious slow bleed or sub dural hematoma (sdh) . Do not fall asleep and get this evaluated asap. Best wishes.

Perhaps there is an auto-spellcheck issue here -- do you maybe mean "concussion" rather than "conclusion?"

I'm concluding Dr Munshower meant a concussion.
