Concussion question I tripped and fell about 2 hours ago, and bumped my head on a metal door. It bled a bit, not much though. I feel fine, just a slight headache. How soon would I know if a have a concussion or not.

Concussion question I tripped and fell about 2 hours ago, and bumped my head on a metal door. It bled a bit, not much though. I feel fine, just a slight headache. How soon would I know if a have a concussion or not.

Depends: The effects of concussions can vary and be unpredictable. It depends on the severity of the injury. The best thing is to give your brain complete rest. The more stain you place on your brain while it is attempting to heal, the more likely it is to slow down the healing process.

Tylenol can be used to treat the headache. ...Read more

Concussions: It is doubtful these rough 8 weeks will give you CTE. We still are learning alot about it but the cause seems to be repetitive trauma over the course of time. Not just you but many people have whacked their head and so far there hasn't been a wave of CTE in the general population. It is in athletics and not just football so far. ...Read more

Is it necessary to have a head CT after I bumped my head on a microwave door one week ago? Everything normal except for some headaches.

Is it necessary to have a head CT after I bumped my head on a microwave door one week ago? Everything normal except for some headaches.

Not necessarily: You may have sustained a mild concussion when you bumped your head. Headaches can be a symptom of post-concussion syndrome which can last for a few weeks after the injury. Ct scans are usually needed if you are having vomiting, changes in behavior/confusion, or persistent severe headaches. ...Read more

I just hit my head (my upper left hairline) on my car door frame. A little bump-I have a stressful day, just wanted 2 check 2 see if I'm okay to sleep?

I just hit my head (my upper left hairline) on my car door frame. A little bump-I have a stressful day, just wanted 2 check 2 see if I'm okay to sleep?

Bump on head.: You can get an egg like bump when you hit your head. Blood is trapped under a tissue covering the bone. This will resolve on its own. Should be safe to sleep especially if you didn't pass out when you hit your head. If this blow to your head left you rattled or confused then have someone check on you early in the AM. They just need to see if they can wake you. ...Read more

Healing: Normally, the head bleeds easily and if it does not coe out with a cut will stay under the skin on the head. It is very sore but slowly goes away. At this point it is not serious just bothersome. It is healing so you do not need to worry. Warm showers over the head probably would help! ...Read more

My 20 month old baby fell and hit her head real good on a door. Now she has a bruise and bump. What to do to bring down swelling? Is she gonna be ok?

My 20 month old baby fell and hit her head real good on a door. Now she has a bruise and bump. What to do to bring down swelling? Is she gonna be ok?

Several cues: The kid who is not knocked out, disoriented or confused @ the time of the injury is probably fine. Confusion or repeated episodes of vomiting in the hours after trauma deserve a look over by the dr. Kids under 8 can be allowed to nap on their regular schedule, with you checking in on occasion. Cold compresses can reduce the swelling, if the kid will let you. ...Read more

Ice it!: Accidents happen. The best, easiest & cheapest thing you can do is ice the area as soon as possible. Earlier is better, more often is better than less often. Acetaminophen, if you're otherwise healthy, can be used for pain relief (I tend to avoid ibuprofen). As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more

Your 3: Year old should be examined by his Pediatrician!!
The fever is probably coincidental but kids generally don't complain that their heads still hurt a week after the trauma so go ASAP
Hope this helps

I'm on coumadin (warfarin) with stable INR. Hit my head on the handle above car door. No bruise, bump, or selling. Some soreness. Could I have brain bleed?

I'm on coumadin (warfarin) with stable INR. Hit my head on the handle above car door. No bruise, bump, or selling. Some soreness. Could I have brain bleed?

Good Question: Procedures that were performed our presume that CAT scan in them or I would've picked up a blame brain bleed. While there is reports of a delay bring a lead within 24 to 48 hours this would be unusual. A careful history with attention to changes in cognitive status would be helpful and will determine whether a further evaluation is needed. Good luck ismy wishes. ...Read more

Door hit nose last wk. Phys ast. Said wasn't broken. Noticed small bump where I was hit- touched it & it made popping noise. No pain. What is it?

Nose: It is hard to say without seeing it. It could be a hairline fracture that was not seen on initial exam or you could have fractured cartilage that is harder to detect. I would recommend further evaluation. ...Read more

My 3 year old daughter hit her forehead on cornor of door. Bid bump and instant bruise what should I do?

My 3 year old daughter hit her forehead on cornor of door. Bid bump and instant bruise what should I do?

Ice it, if she'll: Let you. Avoid warm water on it. If she had no laceration or loss of consciousness, there's not much else you can or need to do. The bruise may spread to more dependent areas, but a large bruise under the lining of the bone sometimes can't resorb enough to avoid local calcification, or a " hard lump" as it heals. ...Read more

My 3 year old daughter hit her forehead on cornor of door. Bid bump and instant bruise what should I do?

Ice and love: As long as the skin is intact, all you need to do is put cold compresses or ice pack on the area. Monitor for any symptoms such as severe headache, recurrent vomiting or her complaining she is seeing funny (visual disturbance). Otherwise, just giving her a big kiss on her head and cuddling with her and reading to her is good therapy. ...Read more
