Question: Hit my head at the cabinet

Brief Answer:
Minor head trauma.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Hitting the head of the cabinet is considered as minor head injury and may cause symptoms that may point towards concussion such headaches, nausea, vertigo, etc.

This kind of head injury becomes a serious problem very seldom.

It is important for me to know how much time passed since you hit the head and what all symptoms did you have, in order to guide you specifically...Please provide these details...

I hit my head against cabinet door on the 23rd this month , i got a bad headache and went to urgent care, doctor said post concussive syndrome, take Advil 3 times a day for 3 days, It’s been a week,but I still have the headache and sometimes dizzying. How long is this going to last.can I still do yoga? Can I travel on the flight for 12 hrs in 10 days?

Brief Answer:
About three weeks.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again and thanks for providing more information.

Post concussion symptoms may be present more or less for three weeks.

I think you may fly after 10 days, because there is no strict constriction about this syndrome.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Take care.
