Hit My Head And Heard A Crunch
Fell backwards ice skating and hit my head. I have a bump, headache and my neck feels a little weird too. Should I go to the ER?
Lower chance: If you didn't black out and didn't break the skin the chance is lower of you having a brain bleed. If you are able to move the neck it's less likely fractured but always possible. It would be important to know your age and medical problems to know for sure but the chance of a bleed from that kind of trauma is low. ...Read more

I hit my head (whilst walking through a low doorway) and now my neck hurts. Could I have replicated the whiplash effect on my neck?
Perhaps.: You may have injured the neck similar to whiplash if you were walking very fast and the speed of impact was high.If normal walking , you likely just strained some muscles.I would take ibuprofen for the inflammation and pain, and consider ice for 24 hours then heat thereafter.Control the swelling and then encourage blood flow to help the strain.Be sure your head is well supported while sleeping. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
