I rang med help to get advice on what I should do as I didn t know ifit was an affect from hitting her head. I took her to our local hospital. They kept her for obs n did blood test ectr as she was counting to vomit. They did scan and it was fine. They then transferred her to rch Brisbane as they said if a.nything was to become of it that there is a nuro surgeon there. hours later she became fine n we were sent home. they put it down to concussion Since this has happened she has been complaining of headaces. on n off. She yesterday went to movieworld with her nan who has just rang me saying she is vomiting and has diarrhea . And also said she was standing on a chair m fell and hit her head. I asked if her head hurts she says no and she has no fluid coming from nose or ears and isn t confused. could this have something to do with her head or a virus foimg around??

Thank you for query.

As you have enumerated the sequence of events and all the reports coming out as normal following the head injury, it is very encouraging. This happened a few weeks back.

As she is having diarrhoea and vomitings, she can feel weak and have spells of dizziness which has caused her to fall down. This does not have any relationship to the earlier injury. Kindly give her plenty of fluids to drink to prevent dehydration. In case diarrlhoea persist then she would have to be given medication.

I hope I have answered your query. Please do revert back if you have more information to share.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
