How long after hitting your head would you notice signs of bleeding in brain? Hit head on corner of concrete wall 7 hrs ago. Have a headache.
variable: This depends on the size and location of the "bleed." something large or in more eloquent areas would probably be noticeable sooner than a small one in not-as-important areas. Very small one might not be noticed at all.In severe cases, you could lose consciousness. Also, if a hemorrhage grows, it could become more noticeable. Somethings can progress over minutes/hours, while others can take days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you have bleeding in the brain 28 hrs after a minor hit on sides of head and no apparent signs of concussion besides headache/pressure in temples?

Hit in the back of the head with a foam dodgeball 12 hours ago. No loss of consciousness. No severe headache. Brain damage likely?
Not likely: Healthy 22 yr usually has a pretty hard-head. It has been 12 hours and you don't really have any concerning symptoms and so significant brain injury is highly highly unlikely. If u were 72 it would be a different story because of a possibility of a very slow bleed. So, just be careful playing sports/protect your head, otherwise you are lucky this episode. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard hit to head 3 weeks ago. Ct scan 2 hours after hit was clear of bleeding. Having bad head and back of the neck pain now. Worried about stroke.
Take reassurance: A stroke isn't likely to be causing head and neck pain; they tend to manifest with motor/sensory problems or speech issues.If you suffered that significant/traumatic a blow to the head this could be post-concussive symptoms. You really should see your primary care doctor as they should be able to help minimize some of the symptoms and make sure nothing more worrisome is going on. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can my nerve irritation in head and lack of emotion be a syptom of neurological based behavior after hitting my head ?
Head injury: Head injuries, even those thought of as "mild" can lead to cognitive (thinking) problems, emotional changes etc. Headache is common, of various types as well. You need to see your doctor as soon as possible and likely a neurologist. If you had the MRI and it is normal, it is reassuring, but your symptoms could certainly be the head injury. There is treatment, depending on specific diagnosis. ...Read more

After a head to head hit in a recent football game, I got a slight stiffness/crick in my neck that soon went away. No other symptoms. Head concussion?
YouGotACrickcussion: If you have no symptoms now you're sitting pretty!And just a little neck stiffness does not qualify as a true concussion. More like a neck strain.With a concussion, the brain gets a good bounce inside the skull & you'd be left with a headache & other symptoms.You may or may not have blacked out,but the symptoms last a while, sometimes a long while. The spinal cord can experience something similar. ...Read more

Concussion/TBI? Shocks on car are poor, was traveling ~85mph and hit bump/dip.Didn't hit head; Dull headache ~1hour later,slower at math than usual.
Not likely: Traumatic Brain Injury is caused by a significant force forcing the brain to move too much in the skull causing it to strike a surface or rub against one of the jagged surfaces. From what you describe, it is unlikely. It is more likely a form of whiplash. Any pain will cause a distraction and slow your thinking.

Does a head injury cause floaters? I've had them since I was young and also had a head injury at the age of 8 (fell down flight of cement stairs).
Annoying: Floaters represent a consolidation of the normal "Jell-O like" material within the eye, called vitreous. When light passes into your eye, through the vitreous gel, the consolidations block the light and cast shadows on the retina. This is the essence of a floater. Very annoying. However, if found upon examination not to affect of the retina, then just annoying. ...Read more
