Hit head. Had CAT scan. Have headache, vomiting and lightening strikes in eyes. Is anything serious?

Yes, I fell nine days ago and hit my head really hard. Went to ER for cat scan. It came out clear but I have had a slight dull head ache since my fall. That night and a couple days later, I kept throwing up. When I close my eyes, I see bright lightening strikes, sometimes when eyes are open also. Could this be serious? Thank you. Sorry, I am on soc. sec. only and don t have money to pay. Thanks anyway.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. There are 3 types of head injury, no findings in CTscan means your injury is concussion . it is the grade 1 means not alarming, but you should have treatment under the supervision of a neuro surgeon rest and light diet.
I advise you some diet recomendations as avoid taking spices chillies oily foods and junk foods. limit non vegetarian foods. take more of fruits and juices besides medical treatment.
Wishing for a quick recovery , and thanks for calling.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.

if your CT scan of the head was normal, it is not serious and represents a concussion ( blunt) trauma to the brain, a kind of shock.

it will resolve in most cases in a few days.

an anti emetic and a pain killer prescribed by your doctor would help you till then.

if it persists, it warrants a re-visit your doctor to look for a contusion (on a MRI) or delayed complication, if any.

wish you get well soon .

take care and keep me posted on your progress !

pl. rate this answer before you log out satisfied.
