In brief: Headache
An epidural hematoma typically refers to blood that acumulates between the brain and the skull after rupture of an artery secondary to trauma.
The classic presentation is head trauma that causes a loss of consciousness followed by awakening and then progressive confusion and pain as the bleeding progresses. Epidural hematomas are typically quickly progressive and thus require rapid treatment.

In brief: See doctor ASAP!
An epidural hematoma is caused by a blow to the side of the head, in the temple area.
These head injuries involved bleeding that is initially confined between membranes within the skull cavity, so a person may appear totally normal at first. However, if left undiagnosed and untreated, the pressure builds from the accumulating blood can can be rapidly fatal.
