I hit my head on side of canopy bed. Had a knot on my head. Two days later still have headache eyes feel alot of pressure back of neck hurt nausea.
A contusion: If you had 1) No loss of consciousness 2) no confusion or visual change 3) no vomiting, continued headache is probably due to contusion/bruising of your head. Now, if you fell hard against it and still have neck pain, it's worth an xray. If you continue having headaches, or any of the above apply, see your doctor to be examined in person. ...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
I hit my head falling off a chair around 19 days ago, I did not pass out. So far ive had no symptoms and feel fine. Should I still be worried?
Asymptomatic: 19 days after a head injury without symptoms is a fair time period to be comfortable that secondary problems should not occur. It is wise to be concerned after head injury even without loss of consciousness. I would feel comfortable feeling that a 19 day period without any sequelae is long enough observation to state that you are back at baseline ...Read more
I hit my head hard on the wall four days ago, mild headache started after two days, no other problems. What should I do? Is it concussion?
The first thing you: Can do is to stop banging your against walls and other solid objects. Since you developed a headache afterwards, you probably had a mild concussion. You need to get plenty of sleep, take a non-narcotic pain med as needed for the headache and DEFINITELY protect your head during the healing period. ...Read more

Go to ER: I'm not sure if you went to the ER the day of the accident, but even if you did, you should return.

Outside or inside:
If you have a concussion, it should be minor, and you should not worry. A headache may be caused by many things.
You have a bump on your scalp? That can be the source of your pain. Perhaps it is merely an external injury.
Give it some time and let us know if there are any unexpected problems. ...Read more

I fell down my stairs (hardwood) a few days ago and hit my head hard and my back. I still have severe headaches. Should I be seen by a doctor?
Um, yes...soon: We all fall down sometimes. BUT, when it is down a distance, and you aren't getting right back up (=still have headache) then is a clue should get examined. Dr may want to do CT or MRI to check brain, or exam alone might give answer. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may help in meanwhile. ...Read more
Hit my head hard near the top towards back on the corner of furniture moving. Still hurts after 17 days, very painful to touch. No nausea. Normal?
Post-trauma HA: I disagree with the previous answer. 17 days after the head injury, ct head likely won't help (a head bleed would either kill someone or encapsulate and start shrinking within the first 3 days). You should see a neurologist soon, to see if this is local scalp injury or post-traumatic headache, both of which are treatable. Good luck! ...Read more
Hit my head on granite countertop 4 days ago. Fair lump, minimal bruising, still feeling pain/headache. Is it normal for it to hurt for this long?
Maybe.: Any bruise or bang can hurt for a week or 2. With head injuries, the key is knowing if the pain responds to simple over the counter pain relievers, in the dosages on the bottle. And if you've other symptoms of concussion that may warrant further exam. So if the pain is not helped with regular otc pain relievers, you have vomiting, dizziness, fever, confusion, weakness, vision change, see MD now ...Read more
I fell on a concrete floor while having a seizure 6 days ago. I hit my head hard. They said they found nothing in the CT. Why does my head hurt still?
Multiple reasons: Your head could still hurt from a deep bruise in the scalp and even a bone bruise on the skull itself, a superficial hematoma, or sore spasming muscles in the scalp or even neck. If you continue to have pain that does not improve or notice any new symptoms, check back with your physician and express your concerns. Best of luck. ...Read more

Not likely: Unless you hit your head pretty hard, it's unlikely. Questions to ask yourself: did you experience loss of consciousness? dizziness? visual changes? Nausea? Altered mental status?
