Disclaimer

I hit my head hard on the edge of a table and I have a bump on my head. It hurts when I'm laying upside down because the blood rushes to my head. ?

Bump on head: Use ice to the area to take the swelling down. If you lost consciousness have headaches or any memory issues, you should get it checked out by a doctor. My guess is you will be just fine with ice and rest. Ice it 30 min every hour.
