Hi, what are the signs of concussions? I fell down the steps and hit my head really hard on a solid piece of wood
Symptoms over signs: The american academy of neurology defines concussions based on the presence or absence of a loss of consciousness, confusion after the event and the persistence of neurologic symptoms. Treatment includes complete cognitive rest followed by a gradual reintroduction of physical and mental activity. Other symptoms such as headaches and sleep disturbances are treated symptomatically.See 2 more doctor answers

Hit the back of my head two days ago, no signs of concussion, went to the ER, doc said I was fine. However, afraid to fall asleep, am I safe to?
Probably safe.: The first 24 hours after any head injury require frequent evaluation (usually every 2 hours) for signs of head injury. If you have not had any symptoms of concussion, you are likely fine. However, there can be delayed consequences up to a month after, but this is rare. Not sleeping will certainly not help. If you have symptoms of concussion later get seen. No contact sports for a week, minimum

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?

Persistent headaches, mental status changes, drowsiness are all worrisome signs. Please go to the ER if you are having continued headaches, nausea blurred vision, drowsiness or any other progressive symptoms. An bleeding inside the head must be ruled outSee 1 more doctor answer
4 yr old fell back onto concrete; hit head, but was somewhat braced by arm. Showing no signs of concussion, & is running around. Take to dr?
Yes!: An epidural hematoma is caused by a blow to the head, in the temple area. These involve bleeding that is initially confined between membranes within the skull cavity, so a person may appear totally normal at first. Undiagnosed and untreated, pressure builds, can be rapidly fatal. (natasha richardson ring a bell?) bleed around brain (subdural hematoma) can cause delayed mental status changes.

Certianly yes. If u: Hit hard enough. I would redirect your focus to why or how u did this? If intentional, you need to talk to your doctor about this behavior, and get help. Look up the symptoms of concussion and see how many you R experiencing. It is very important not to get a second concussion while suffering symptoms from the first one. This is how people die from concussion. If you R having symptoms, see your doc.
Post concussion: You may have a post concussion syndrome. This is a complex disorder in which a variable combination of symptoms — such as headaches and dizziness — last for weeks and sometimes months after the injury that caused the concussion. The duration or severity of the concussion is not related to the severity of the post concussive syndrome. If you have any of these symptoms see a neurologist.See 2 more doctor answers
