Hit my face on steering wheel in wreck 8 days ago.Middle inside of nose very tender,when moved makes front teeth&jaw hurt. Is this normal?
Face and hands: Face and hand injuries are common after airbag deployment. Abrasions and bruises around the face are common, and occasionally the nose may be broken. Occasionally, the hot gases escaping from the airbag may produce first degree burns. If you are wearing glasses or sunglasses, you may also get a few lacerations. Hand injuries are also common, especially if your hands are high on the steering wheel. ...Read more
A baby can be killed by a front airbag, but has any adult driver been killed by an exploding airbag, due to sitting too close to the steering wheel?
Absolutely.: This is a well-known cause of injury: a front seat driver or passenger who is not wearing his/her seatbelt and has a front-end collision, is at significant risk of death. Rapid acceleration of the airbag, in a crashing vehicle (rapid deceleration), causes a much bigger force than when a seatbelt is worn. The two forces are just too much. See comment for a link to problem/tweaking airbags. ...Read more

Other symptoms that concern me include dizziness, weakness in one of your limbs, difficulty focusing or double vision, forgetfulness. The list goes on. If you're not sure if you should seek medical care after a head injury, you should seek medical care. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read more

How long does norovirus live on a steering wheel My boyfriend was sick with it 2weeks ago and I'm nervous to use his jeep Im emetophobia He drove sick?
No worries!: It is unlikely the virus survives on the steering wheel 2 weeks after your boyfriend's illness. But if you remain nervous, clean the steering wheel with any standard cleanser or an alcohol gel like Purel. That will kill any remaining virus and prevent you from catching it. Nothing to worry about. ...Read more

I was in an accident and my neck did bend down on steering wheel but only a out 10 mph and it has been a few months later. Neck pain. Whiplash ?
Whiplash: Healing is directly proportional to the energy absorbed during the injury. So, harder impact=longer healing time. Generally speaking, this is purely a muscular problem and worsens for a day or two, and then improves thereafter over days or weeks. Rarely does whiplash produce lasting symptoms over 2-3 months (unless a lawsuit is involved, then all bets are off). ...Read more
