Dizziness After A Head Injury
Not Necessarily: Assuming that there were no problems prior to the head injury, various speech problems can occur after this type of injury, but it depends on the area of the brain that is affected. It is always a good idea for a person to be fully evaluated after a head injury for all kinds of possible problems related to learning, communication, and even personality or behavioral changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After a head to head hit in a recent football game, I got a slight stiffness/crick in my neck that soon went away. No other symptoms. Head concussion?
YouGotACrickcussion: If you have no symptoms now you're sitting pretty!And just a little neck stiffness does not qualify as a true concussion. More like a neck strain.With a concussion, the brain gets a good bounce inside the skull & you'd be left with a headache & other symptoms.You may or may not have blacked out,but the symptoms last a while, sometimes a long while. The spinal cord can experience something similar. ...Read more
Only if...: the fracture line extends in to the mastoid aur cells. What did the head CT show ??? ...Read more
Unlikely in young: In a young person, it is unlikely. In an older person (>80 years), the patient may have a chronic subdural hematoma. As we get older, the brain "shrinks". There is more potential space between the brain and the dura. Thus, small, often times unnoticed bumps on the head can tear the bridging vessels, thus leading to the sdh. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Headache in a few isolated spots. Mild nausea. Weakness. Recent head injury (3 weeks ago). CTscan 2 hrs after hit was clear. Worried about a stroke?
See a neurologist: Some people may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (tinnitus, difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. Complications (seizure, coma) can prolong hospitalization. See a neurologist for evaluation. http://www.webmd.com/brain/post-concussion-syndrome ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Was struck in the face three time with a flying volleyball. Experiencing headaches eye aches nausea dizziness and a little memory loss.
Yes : You are describing some classic concussion symptoms. Brain and body rest are important in your recovery. Do not return to any activities that are high risk for another concussion- sports, biking, etc. until you've been asymptomatic and have tolerated noncontact activities for 4 consecutive without any return of symptoms.

I have a very slight ringing in head. I had a pressure in head followed by 10 sec vertigo and 10 min dizziness. Side head pain. Ear infection? Or tia?
Meniere's?: Some of the hallmarks of meniere's include tinnitus (ringing), vertigo (dizziness), and fullness in the ear. There can be some fluctuating hearing loss, and headache (often migraine) can coexist. This would be my first thought for you. More information can be found at http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/menieres-disease/ds00535. I would consider seeing an ENT for a hearing test and evaluation. ...Read more

Head tremor cause from head trauma or other neurological problem? About 6 years ago my father was in a motorcycle accident. He had some head trauma that resulted in a bad concussion. About a year after that we started noticing a slight shaking of his head
The : The most common cause of a "yes-yes" head tremor in a person with a parent with a similar condition is essential tremor. Like most movement disorders, essential tremor is worse with stress. Other than an examination by someone who is familiar with the condition, there is no test to confirm the diagnosis. Other conditions can cause head tremor, but are less common in young, healthy people. ...Read more
Can hitting your head cause brain aneurysm? Mild to severe head trauma with pain resolution after 4 minutes.
No, not possible.: No, trauma to the head cannot cause an aneurysm. But I want to make sure we are using the terms in a similar fashion. An aneurysm is an unstable blood vessel, a bleed in the brain is a different process. A hard enough trauma could cause bleeding in the brain or it could (rarely) cause rupture of an existing aneurysm. ...Read more
