Last week I fell and hit my head on stair railing drunk, I feel fine now but should I still get it checked? I quit drinking also.

Last week I fell and hit my head on stair railing drunk, I feel fine now but should I still get it checked? I quit drinking also.

No: If you feel fine, you don't need to get it checked since the incident happened last week. However, if you hit your head again, you could have a bad concussion next time. Each time you hit your head, the injury to the brain accumulates. ...Read more

I don't use meth at all. Last night I was drunk and did a tiny tiny bump. How long till out my system?

I don't use meth at all. Last night I was drunk and did a tiny tiny bump. How long till out my system?

Types vary: The conservative half-life for the general class of amphetamines is 32 hrs. That means that 50mg taken will leave 25mg in your system after 32 hrs. Another 32 hrs and 12-1/2 remain, etc. So, how much matters. A tiny, tiny bump will leave a tiny, tiny, tiny bump. Helpful? Not much, I guess. Don't use it. It's really a BAD thing for our bodies. Drinking is fine, but 'drunk' is not great either. ...Read more

When I drink alcohol, my head/vision spins really easily, even when I'm not drunk. Why?

When I drink alcohol, my head/vision spins really easily, even when I'm not drunk. Why?

Hard to say: You say you're having physical reactions to alcohol as if you're drunk although you're not. Many physical factors could be contributing to this reaction. Suggest you see your primary care doctor as soon as possible. Tell your doctor just what you're saying here. Let your doctor evaluate your symptoms. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Just started physical therapy for forward head posture and upper crossed syndrome. I'm feeling spaced out/drunk. I think there is neck degeneration.

Just started physical therapy for forward head posture and upper crossed syndrome. I'm feeling spaced out/drunk. I think there is neck degeneration.

Your probably right: The upper quadrant is a dynamic functional and structural entity. A dysfunction in one region causes compromises in another region. Treating just part of the problem allows the remaining problems to continue and additional compromises will become evident. You need to see about all of the interrelationships and treat the composite of problems with appropriate therapies. ...Read more

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?

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

Tinnitus: Tinnitus may occur from blunt trauma (as you've experienced) or for no reason. It is most commonly self limited. This means it will resolve on its own. If you fell and lost consciousness, it is standard to have a head CT. If there was no loss of consciousness, I would give the ringing time. It will likely resolve on its own ...Read more

Not necessarily: While many sexually transmitted infections can grow anywhere that sexual secretions spread some are more sensitive to the environment and will develop more in one area than another. "bumps" can be a lot of things, some of no concern at all, others need to be followed to confirm resolution without recurrence. ...Read more

Wife was drunk and hit her head in the bathroom sink in the temple area. Her eye turned black too. Why did that happen?

"Raccoon eyes": Head trauma results in a hematoma (collection of blood) which tracks down under the soft tissue around the eye (s). Blood turns deep purple/black over time. This is not harmful to the eye. If not already seen in er she should be because of risk of skull fracture. ...Read more

Episodes of dizziness head pressure, head feels swollen, blurry vision, feeling "drunk", feeling of dizzy & falling when lying on back, awaken frequently at night only during episodes. Possible causes?

Episodes of dizziness head pressure, head feels swollen, blurry vision, feeling "drunk", feeling of dizzy & falling when lying on back, awaken frequently at night only during episodes. Possible causes?

Bppv: You have the most common cause of dizziness. It is called benign positional vertigo. It is caused by having small crystals (calcium deposits that have broken off from the sense organ in the semicircular canal). These crystals give you the sensation you are moving, when you are not and they make you feel dizzy or lightheaded. This will wake you up from your sleep. See an ENT to fix it ...Read more

19: 19 years old, diagnosed osa (mostly if not controlled yet) you don t need Alzheimer's s diagnosis (at your age?!) to explain those symptoms. If those problems persist after treating osa properly, and maybe adjusting your weight and healthy diet, further studies might be needed. Ask your dr, more workup may help. Stay clean and safe.

I was very drunk last night and walked into a pole. It swelled up right above my eye. I recall the event and most things after. Concussion?

I was very drunk last night and walked into a pole. It swelled up right above my eye. I recall the event and most things after. Concussion?

Not likely from Hx: Do you recall the details before & after the event? What or how did you feel when you got attacked by this rogue pole? Were you dazed or disoriented (aside from the disorientation from the alcohol). If you weren't dazed or lost consciousness then, you probably didn't suffer a concussion just a pretty good smack to the face & a shiner to show but no TBI. You should report the pole to the police. ...Read more
