It is a symptom which may represent any one of a number of underlying problems ( problems in the inner ear, vestibular nerve or in brain itself.). Best to check with your doc so that you understand the cause and specific treatment of your vertigo. ...Read more

Hit myself in temple with knuckle hard 4 month ago last two weeks keep feeling lightheaded And dizzy could it be related? Brain bleed? Stress?

Post concussive: Trauma to the head can incur an internal shaking of the brain, resulting in microtrauma to cells and supporting structures. These can all combine into the "post-concussive syndrome". It does not require actual loss of consciousness. Symptoms can persist for weeks and can include dizziness and loss of concentration ability. A good quality brain MRI scan is helpful for diagnosis and evaluation. ...Read more

How long after hitting your head would you notice signs of bleeding in brain? Hit head on corner of concrete wall 7 hrs ago. Have a headache.

If i had a brain bleed would the pain get worse and lessen? Would a spot in the back of my skull be tender to the touch? I've had no head trama.

If you have had no: Head trauma, than you fear a hemorrhagic stroke or an aneurysm? Most likely, if you had either of these, you would not feel it on the outside of your head and you would have neurologic signs ie limb weakness, problems speaking, confusion or any other neuro signs associated with damage. If you are having any other neuro signs, get checked out, but otherwise it does not sound like an active bleed. ...Read more

Heads been sore on and off for few days. Not dizzy but head does feel weird and unsteady/wavy. Scared I'm going to have a brain bleed!Had scan 5 y ago?

Bleed unlikely: A hemorrhagic stroke is dramatic to the point of not being questionable at all. You will lose use of limbs on one side or become extremely weak on one side, or loose consciousness altogether. If you're truly worried and have risk factors (fam. history, blood thinning, ), talk to your PCP and ask for imaging for re-assurance. ...Read more
