Hi, I am a 22 year old male with a panic disorder. Friday night I stood up and hit my head on the top of my desk. It was in the forehead and nose area, leaving a cut on my nose and slight soreness on my forehead. I was drinking but did not loose consciousness. I remember it and I felt fine on Saturday and Sunday until I researched "delayed XXXXXXX bleeding" on Google and now I feel like I have pressure on the top of my head (even though that's not where I hit my head). It's been four days, and I feel like it's all in my head, but I'm not sure and I don't want to miss classes getting checked out if it's all in my head. However, I also don't want to drop dead if I'm bleeding internally. I just can't focus on my work and feel dizzy, but that could be my anxiety, it's just hard to tell

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms are not suggestive of any serious XXXXXXX brain injury.

Please watch for the following warning signs:

Severe headache, vomiting, double or blurred vision, decreased alertness, weakness of arm or leg, fits, etc.

If any of these occur, you should get a CT scan of brain done.

As of now, there is no need to worry and you need not go for a check up.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
