Car accident. Hurts to touch head, pain in temple. CT scan normal. Did something change?

I was in a horrible car accident Wednesday and lost consciousness for a bit. My head must have been jostled around as it now hurts to touch the rt side of my head and my temple is throbbing. CT Thursday morning was normal. Could something have changed in these few days? By the way, I was hit by someone going 80 miles per hour and my car was totalled. My air bag did not deploy.

Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

If your CT is normal you do not have any cause for concern. However, it is possible that you have residual symptoms from concussive injury. I think you should visit with a doctor who could be a primary care physician nor necessarily a neuropsychiatrist and first have yourself get a general check up and take medications. Analgesics help with the pain. However, if despite being on over the counter analgesics your pain is not better, you will need to visit with a psychiatrist.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day !
