How to rule out concussion?

default
Posted on Wed, 2 Dec 2015
Question: Hi. Today when I went shopping I was trying on a coat and the lady that worked at the department store was fixing the coat and the collar of the coat for me- while she was fixing it- her hand and part of her arm hit me in the right ear as she was moving her arm and hand to fix the collar of the coat. Can this cause a concussion? It hurt at first and then i panicked but then common sense kicked in and I said to myself this kind of thing probably happens to people. Im just more sensitve since i suffered a concussion a year ago from a car accident. Do you think i shoud be concerned? Thank you

Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry about.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns,

I don't think you should be concerned about any concussion from such a minor Impact on the head.

The brain is well protected inside the skull and is not easily damaged, so don't worry, I don't see any serious situation in your case.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
