You should: have a neurologic exam....and possibly a head CT See your PCP as soon as practicable! Mild concussion is a definite possibility Hope this helps! Dr Z

Agree with Dr. Zimon. Please contact your doctor and/or go to the nearest emergency department if symptoms worsen. The other concern is why you have been hitting yourself in the head in the first place. Do take care of yourself. All the best.

Several possibilitie: First identifying triggers in the diet or lifestyle are important as that may abort them altogether. I also suggest chinese medicine and acupuncture as I have seen headaches disappear during treatment. There are also medications that can help a great deal when one starts.. So having several options is very helpful!

Hydroquinone cream: Try hydroquinone cream. Rub in a small amount 2 times each day. You can find a 2% hydroquinone cream over the counter in most pharmacies. Natural liquorice extract is another treatment that works but is usually not as effective.
