Brain zaps that happen infrequent and randomly on the top of my left head. It lasts 1-2 seconds and makes me stop dead in my tracks.?

My son got head bumped in the nose. It bled for an hour and now he's complaining that its sore when he touches it. Is this normal?
Very common: A big bump to the nose will often cause bleeding. Sometimes a nosebleed is brief; sometimes the clot that forms in the nostrils can continue to ooze for a while. Try to encourage him to leave it alone; the more he fusses with it the more it may ooze. If this is the first time this has happened it's likely no big deal. By tomorrow you might try to clean it out in the bathtub. ...Read more
