Probably not: If you did not pass out, do not have severe headaches and feel normal as far as mood then it is probably just some bruising under the scalp. It should resolve in a week or so.

Scalp contusion: The slight pain is expected and should be localized to the area of impact. Depending on the location of the impact, the muscle involved in yawning may have been injured at the same time. Again, this should be localized and the pain one sided. Although rare, pathological yawning from brain injury is described in the medical literature. ...Read more

6 years ago I hit my head on the pavement and bled for a couple days. The spot is still sensitive when I touch it. Is this bad?

No.: Any injury can cause damage to the superficial nerves in the skin and they may never recover from it. Sometimes people who get a shot in their arm or leg have an area of numbness just from that, that never goes away. It is not common, but it does happen and if it only causes minor symptoms, like sensitivity to touch, it is often no big deal. See your doc to verify it's nothing. ...Read more

How hard did u hit?: We used to think that post concussive syndrome only happened when you whacked yourself unconscious. Now we know that it can happen after seemingly minor head traumas. Any new-onset headaches, especially associated with recent trauma, need to be worked up by your doc. ...Read more

I was riding my bike through the woods and I lost my balance and hit my head on a tree...What should I do?

Have it checked out: If you have headache, nausea/vomiting, lethargy or if there was a loss of consciousness or any open lacerations you should definitely have it evaluated right away at an emergency room. If you were not wearing a helmet, that increases the risk of serious injury and is another factor that would suggest you see a doctor. ...Read more

I hit my head on Monday on the wall at back right side just below crown! Do I need to check? Had quick vision quirk yesterday like before migraine.

Depends: You didn't mention if you passed out after hitting your head. If you had any other symptoms immediately following like blurry vision or nausea or problems remembering things, you had a concussion. We consider mild concussion much more seriously than before. Repeat concussions can cause traumatic brain injury. I would consider getting evaluated, especially if any symptoms continue. ...Read more

I hit my head on my shelf in my room, and it was slightly bleeding but not anymore. It happened about 2 hours ago, but I show no symptoms am I okay?

I think your: Ok. There's probably no underlying damage. If we all went to the er for a head ct every time we bumped it, healthcare costs would be even greater. Professional boxers don't go in for a head ct after every fight; not yet at least. I can't say u don't have a skull fracture or that your not gonna have a concussion. It sound kinda like u bumped your head in the way millions do every day. Gdluc. ...Read more
