Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
From your description it seems that your father in law has suffered a minor head injury. Since the CT scan does not show any bleeding, a mild concussion is likely.
The spinning of the head should clear in a week or two at the most if he takes a good care of himself.
For symptomatic relief, he can get tablet Cinnarizine prescribed from his treating physician. Kindly try to prevent such accidents from happening again. Be careful all the time.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
