2 yo hit head today. He acted & ate fine. This was 6 hrs ago. A little cranky. Now, he's hard to wake. He will but gets really mad & goes back to bed.

It can be hard to assess the mental status of a two year old so many institutions use this age as a cut off i. Their criteria for neuroimaging. ...Read more

"Ache" and "fog": Presumably it will "heal" although it may take longer, depends on the length of time between the two hits and how hard you hit your head, there's really nothing you can do but wait (and try to keep from hitting your head so often, or keep a bicycle helmet with you). ...Read more

Did you get checked: Out after the fall? Have you had any other head trauma or neurologic signs?

Hit head a week ago Dr said mild concussion. Bumped head again 4 hrs ago. Not hard. Slight head pressure for a bit. Feel ok now. Any need for concern?
Clarification: A concussion, by definition, is a head injury causing loss of consciousness, amnesia, or a combination of both. The term is way overused by numerous physicians, as most of the patients have merely "bumped" their heads, and will experience no permanent consequence. You are likely in the latter category. ...Read more

Hit head hard under granite countertop. Urgent care did x-rays, came back normal. No symptoms except head hurts. Is a CT scan still needed?
Probably not: It is not surprising to have a headache after hitting your head on granite. Your scalp is very likely bruised and may be quite sore, tender and/or swollen for a while. If you did not lose consciousness and you have no other symptoms and if your physical exam was normal, there is probably no need to do a ct scan. ...Read more
