Head injury, bruised left eyelid, ear congestion, soreness in head. Treatment?

I fell and hit th back right side of my head on the cement 5 days ago. I have been in the bed sleeping on and off since then. I can see and hear but my left eyelid is bruised and my head feeling like I have water in my ears. Kind of stuffy feeling. My head is still sore and I still have trouble cutting my left right and left???

Hello Lesilieheasley,
The skin around the eye is very loose with mostly fat underneath.This makes it vulnerable for fluid to accumulate there in case of head or facial injury near the eye. Usually they heal by itself by putting ice or by pain relieving medications. But the ear problem mentioned by you indicates that you should consult neurosurgeon/ENT specialist to rule out any skull fractue etc. and have a CT or MRI of head done.
Thanks and take care.
