Bumped Head While Drunk
Yesterday I tripped and hit my head while walking up the stairs. Later I got drunk but I recall the events before/after. Concussion or hangover?
Have no idea: because you haven't listed any symptoms of either condition. Getting drunk after a head injury doesn't sound like its using your best judgement, or even just common sense. If you have symptoms of a concussion (dizziness, imbalance, nausea, vomiting, headache, or any neurological complaints) see your doctor. A hangover is marked by nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and can have headache. See your Dr. ...Read more
Head injury, fell from shower, hit head on toilet. Two days ago. Pressure sensation inside head. Nausea, no vomit. Can't focus. Should I worry?

Been on bed rest for 2 months. Sitting upright I feel wobbly, tense shoulders, wobbly swimmy head. I put head between knees and head spins. This bp?
Not surprising: In a study of medical student, 3 days of bedrest resulted in weakness and dizziness with standing. It's hard to imagine a recommendation of bedrest for 2 months. It would be expected to be associated with a high risk of blood clots in ones legs and resultant pulmonary embolism, and osteoporosis. Physiotherapy can greatly help in achieving a recovery. ...Read more

Head trauma due to fight, insides of ears purple, bruised. When I lay down,feels like my head I'd spinning. Should I be worried?
Heads up!: Head trauma can be tricky. Things ER doctors worry about are loss of consciousness, bleeding, confusion or neurological issues. If you have been hit in the head and the inside of the ears are purple, you may actually have a skull fracture. There are many other things your doctor can look for that may indicate fractures/bleeding and given the symptoms you have, I'd get it checked out. ...Read more

Hit top of my head when bending down in fridge and stood up quick hit it on freezer door.Still hurts giving me head ache.Should i worry?
Probably OK: It is unlikely that you hit your head with enough force on the freezer door to cause any serious damage. However, if you develop any symptoms of closed head injury, such as vision changes, vomiting, mental status changes, then you need to be seen. But the likelihood is that you got a good knock and may have a bruise. ...Read more

Rolled off bed hit my head on side table corner about a week ago. No bruise, no bump, scalp swelling still hurts. Headaches, jaw pain, ear ache?
See your Doctor: If you are still having pain after a week, it will be a good idea to evaluate with your physician. In my opinion, any pain lasting more than a week should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

COncussion: If you were not knocked out or down and have minimal symptoms it is not an issue. Headings, nausea, visual problems, concentration issues, sleep disturbances, personality changes and appetite changes can be symptoms of concussion. If these happen see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more
