See below: If you are still having symptoms, or if you are unsure whether or not something that is occurring is from a head injury, then let me suggest consultation with a neurologist or a neurosurgeon. If you are not having any symptoms, then your should be relieved and feel confident that no permanent damage has occurred.

A 39-year-old member asked:

With head injury what else should I be concerned about?

This is plenty: The number one thing to worry about in a head injury is the brain. This is also the number 2 and 3 and 4 etc thing to worry about. The brain is the most complex organ in the body. Lots of things can go wrong and often do. Answering this question fills books.. Eyes, ears, mouth, jaws can be injured too but the effects are usually obvious soon after, while brain injury may not appear for months.
