Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
At first the ice pack is a good idea. You should also notice for neuro ictus, signs like: vomiting
, loss of consciousness
, nausea, hearing loss
, seizures, severe headaches
, problems in vision, etc. As you have not mentioned any of these, there is no immediate risk.
But, in most cases with head injury
we also like to rule out the worst by advising a CT scan of the head. This would be advisable at the earliest. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Also, refrain from using pain management drugs as of now, as these could make the condition worse (in case of an internal injury).
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
