Throbbing headache and tender neck after being hit on the side of the head. Is there a risk?

Hi. Two days ago I was mopping the floor when I turned really fast and hit the side of my head on the corner of our granite counter top. It was a really hard hit. I ve had a dull throbbing pressure head ache since then and my neck is tender. Headache seems to lessen when I sleep. I ve had a little trouble focussing w my eyes, but not too bad. My main concern is the constant pressure between my temples.

Welcome to HCM!

I have read your question carefully and feel that you need to see a neurologist (as you have pain in head , neck, difficulty in seeing clearly), or at least a doctor in person.

Had I been treating you I would go for an MRI brain to rule out any injury to the brain. once this is fine, it will be wise to check neck by thorough examination and X Ray neck, if there is any trauma to vertebrae.

You can take some pain killers and avoid moving your neck too much for time till you see a doctor.
only by thorough check up and investigation one can pin the diagnosis in your case.

Hope you get well soon.
Feel free to ask more questions regarding this .
