Is visiting hospital nececessary after a head injury?
She can be observed at home.
Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your wife's symptoms and they are suggestive of mild head injury.
As of now, she can be treated with analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.
There is no need to take her to hospital now. However, if she develops severe headache, vomiting, more drowsiness or blurred vision, she may be taken to emergency room.
I hope my reply has helped you.
I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
