Question: Hi I hit my cheekbone pretty hard a week ago, I don't have much headache just find I sometimes am a little out of balance and when clenching something with my hands I sometimes feel its like a third party.... I've been to the doctor and he ruled out concussion (I have had one before) so my question is why do I feel like this and what's the length of recovery?

Hello!

Thank you for the query.

What you are suffering from is most likely labyrinth concussion. This condition is caused by XXXXXXX ear blood flow impede and XXXXXXX ear fluids impede. It results with dizziness, noises in the ears, sometimes nausea, hand shaking etc. It can last some time after the head trauma. Moreover, such out of balance feeling can be caused by insignificant brain injury.
If you feel this is getting worse, you should visit neurologist and laryngologist(especially if dizziness and ear noise appears). You may need head CT to make sure no serious brain injures has been done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Hello!

I suggest you to have rest for another week or so (usually such symptoms are gone during 2-3 weeks). Drinking is not a good idea as long as you have such symptoms as an alcohol affects balance area in the brain and can make your healing longer or your symptoms worse.

Hope this will help.
Regards.

My doc told me that I m having Intestinal pseudoobstruction & advised using enema fleet once every 3-4days. Btw, I m a tetraplegia due to spinal cord injury 14yrs ago & underwent a sub-total colostomy a year ago. Before the intestinal operation, I had to use suppositories every day over the 13years. After the intestinal operation, my bowel movement was like 3 to 4 times a day which I had no control over it. And now no bowel movement without enema fleet. My question is, is it ok for my body in the long run if I clear my bowel movement once every 3 to 4 days? Is it better for my body if I were to clear my bowel movement daily using suppositories (Like in the past)?
