Large bump on head after being hit by a door. Having constant headache, dizzy, lightheadedness, nausea. Suggestions?

I m writing because I m not sure exactly what to do. This past Tuesday I got hit on the top of my head with a back door to suburban. It comes down automatically. I walked rightbinto it as it was coming down.I got a large bump that has gone down. But I ve had a constant headache since. I went to a chiropractor to look at my neck . After the adjustment I felt dizzy lightheaded and nauseated. That is better but i hate this headache. What should I do?

Thank you for posting your query.

Based on the description of your symptoms and the event that led to your head injury, most probably you have not suffered any internal brain injury. So, there is no need to worry at this stage.

You can take medications such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets to reduce the headache.

If the headache does not subside in a day or two, or if you develop vomiting, double vision, weakness of arm or leg, fits, etc, then, you should see a doctor and get a CT scan of the head done.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
