See md: See your MD, and have a good check up. Maybe muscle strain or may be way your child sleeps--pillow etc. One additional possibility could be eye issues causing her to cock her head to one side to avoid double vision. Any history of trauma? ...Read more

Likely TMJ : Headaches and ear pain are many of the presenting chief complaints of patients with tmj. You can sort out the ringing by protruding your jaw forward when the ringing occurs.

I don't know how you were at the type you got hit...for example, from what height did that hammer come down? You could calculate the amount of Force that you took on the head and neck using F=ma but I think seeing your doctor for a referral to a neurologist for possible PCS and management would be a good idea. ...Read more
