Yes: You describe symptoms of a closed head injury or tbi, and I advise that you not delay an evaluation by your md or by a local emergency room dept.

I am 60 hours since hitting head, my pupils are still equal and react to light, can I rule out brain bleeding?
No: Loss of pupil reflex is a very late and very serious finding. Assuming a mild trauma (hit on counter etc) the likelihood of intracranial bleed is low. Many studies also have demonstrated that even with significant trauma, in the absence of neurological symptoms, bleed is unlikely. The only way to know for sure is ct. If you have any symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

If my eye suddenly hit by small pebbles/dust, it fells like it goes into my eyes. Actually where does it go?
Outside of the eye: The front surface of the eye is surrounded by a membrane (the conjunctiva) which wraps from the edge of the colored portion (the cornea) posteriorly and folds back to coat the inside of the lids. This is an external space, not connected to the inside of the eye or body. So debris entering this space is flushed out by tears and generally poses no hazard unless it is of high velocity and power. ...Read more
Someone just told me I had blood in my eye. Small circle, should I be concerned? No one hit me there or anything
Hemorrhage: With no symptoms and no history of eye trauma, the most likely possibility is a subconjunctival hemorrhage - a slight leak of blood from a weak walled vein under the conjunctiva. These can be from coughing, straining, rubbing the eye, or simply an unknown cause. It will rapidly fade and cause no harm. If the vision is fine and there is no pain you can wait a week or so for it to fade. ...Read more

My son fell on the sidewalk and hit his head and now has a huge bump he seems ok but has a really bad headache and dilated pupils should I be worried?
Recommendation: The bump is consistent with local bruising, and if both eyes have dilated pupils, likely autonomic reaction to his pain. Although unlikely that he has intracranial problems such as bleeding, the bad headache may be rather debilitating. If he has trouble with vision, develops intense dizziness, nausea, vomiting, double vision, go to ER. Do contact your doctor about what has happened. ...Read more

Rapid healing: These are a type of abrasion and usually will become asymptomatic in 24 hours.

Got hit in my face 3-4 days ago. Now have black eye. Bleed a bit from the nose then stop. Now see mucus/salive with small blood through mouth split. Er?
Nose or eye: There could be two reasons for this finding. First is that the trauma that you sustained could have also caused damage to the inner lying tissues of the nose or it can be due to the fact that the nasolacrimal duct which drains tears from our eye is draining blood from the eye. Either way you must see an ophthalmologist to get thoroughly examined. ...Read more
