I got hit in the eye with a volleyball and now I have a grey spot in my peripheral. Should I be worried?

See a doctor today: There can be different reasons for the spot in your vision, such as inflammation and swelling in the front or back of the eye, a retinal problem, as well as others. This is not something that you should try to let resolve itself. See an eye doctor immediately; they can properly diagnose and treat your vision very rapidly. ...Read more

I hit my temple about a week ago. After that I was fine but since then when I move my head the spot hurts a little. No other symptoms. I'm worried?

Not To Worry: Don't worry. That's a sensitive spot and the soreness can last a while. If there was anything really serious, it would have shown-up by now, especially in your age group. If you develop a serious headache or nausea then maybe you should let a doctor know, but the likelihood of that happening is really low. If you bump that same area again, it'll really hurt, so be careful. ...Read more

I hit the left side of my head and didn't develop a headache until later in the day. The spot I hit hurts significantly more. Should I be worried?

SoundsOK-GiveItTime: Sounds like you're still standing, awake & conversant. Good! I'd only worry if the headache worsened &/or you started vomiting/getting dizzy &/or your vision was changing or the headache persisted for longer than a week or interfered with sleep or in general just bothered you over time. A headache after a head bump is common. Those other symptoms could be worrisome. Give it time, I'm sure you'll be OK ...Read more

When I blink, I see a black spot in the corner of my left eye. Should I be worried?

Floater: If the black spot moves with blinks, then it's likely in the vitreous. If not new and only one without flashes or decreased vision, may not be anything serious. If it's a fixed black spot, then should be checked out for a potential retinal or brain problem. ...Read more

I am seeing a tiny black spot from my left eye when focusing in bright light. Should I be worried?

Probably floater: Your description sounds like a vitreous floater. As long as your visual acuity is not altered, I would recommend scheduling a routine eye examination. However, if your vision has been affected or if you have associated flashes, obscuration of vision, distortion, pain, double vision, then seek immediate eye examination appointment. Generally floaters are a normal development with aging. ...Read more

My baby girl has a red spot on Her white of her eye. I am worried as to what it could be. Also, after every letter I type on here the cursor moves.

That could be a: Broken blood vessel from delivery, depending on the age of your baby. If it seems painful, it could also be that she poked her eye with her nail, or someone else's. I would still recommend that you have her doctor examine her and he/she will be able to tell you for sure. ...Read more

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 more

Recommend: Optic neuritis can be associated with several causes, but an issue with multiple sclerosis or NMO needs to be assessed fully. You need followup with both an ophthalmologist and neurologist, and get all of this clarified. Do NOT delay, as your treatment interventions may need modification. ...Read more

Your: Your condition sounds most like post traumatic cephalalgia. The triptans (maxalt) are a fine choice. Other considerations for agents to treat your headaches include abortive agents such as the nsaids (non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs) or butalbital containing preparations.

If prophylaxis is required (greater than 4 disabling headaches a month) then the tricyclics followed by the calcium channel blockers are the preferred agents. ...Read more

Can't Tell: Why don't you have him evaluated if you think there is significant trauma to the head? How old is he? Did you see the injury? Could the eye have been struck? Any change in mental status? Minor bumps don't usually require any treatment except for ice or maybe acetaminophen. Anything more significant warrants a proper evaluation ...Read more

I got whacked by a hairbrush and now it's all red with a bump I'm worried it will scar? When will itgoaway? It may be the same spot I bumped my head.

Depends on...: Whether or not a skin wound leaves a visible scar depends on many variables, such as: how likely that person typically scars (some people scar easily), where on the body the wound is, how old the person is, whether or not the would gets infected, whether there is bad bruising around the wound, whether or not the wound is staying open (under tension), etc... First aid ointment may help healing. ...Read more
