User :   I hit my head on a door yesterday on the right side of my forehead. I'm not sure how hard I hit it. I felt some pain for about 15 minutes afterward, and then the pain stopped. I had to go take an exam for school right after, so I went and took my exam and came back. My roommate commented that my eyes looked dilated, and I noticed that one eye was a little more dilated than the other eye when I looked in the mirror. The only other thing I feel right now is a little bit dizzy, not enough to stop me from moving around and doing my daily activities. Should I worry about this?
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
let me read
User :   Ok.
Doctor :   how are you felling now
User :   Right now I feel normal, just a little bit dizzy
User :   I don't have any other symptoms really.
Doctor :  
than you need not worry
User :   The dilated eyes don't mean anything?
Doctor :  
it is the reaction of the pupil to light which is important
