Hi! I fell over while drunk the other night and smashed the back left hand side of my head against a radiator! I was drunk so just got straight into bed and went to sleep! Thw next day my back and neck were sore as i landed funny and i also have a big bruise on my bum. Its a few days later, the cut on my head has scabbed over but im still getting like a dull pressure and a burning sensation in my head, is this ok? or should i go to the doctors?

Brief Answer: get yourself checked. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. After fall you had soft tissue injury and it usually takes 1 to 2 weeks to heal depending upon level of trauma. Since you are having pain in head I suggest you to get yourself examined as physical examination will be required . Hope I have answered your question . Wishing you good health. Take care. God bless.
