Suggest remedy for drowsiness and headaches after injury to head
Transient soft tissue injury and dizziness after blunt trauma to head
Sorry about the persistent headache you are having after you had the blunt force trauma to the head. As you have mentioned you have already seen a physician and undergone a physical examination, and the GP rightly prescribed Naxdom, but still you are having some heaviness in the head.
This is normal to have that feeling for up to 3 weeks post the injury. Generally due to the trauma sustained, there will be some disarray in the inner ear which helps in maintaining the body balance, and it generally settles down after a period of rest. The duration of these symptoms may vary too from 3 weeks to 3 months, but mostly they tend to wear off by 3 weeks. So if possible having a lot of time to rest and not stressing yourself will definitely go a long way in helping you. Taking a nutritious diet along with plenty of fluids with a pinch of salt, will help too. Along with that I would also advise taking Tab Vertin 16mg twice a day for the dizziness and Tylenol for headaches, provided you do not consume alcohol during this period and you are not sensitive to those drugs. Take them for a period of week. A physical exam too is needed to see for any soft tissue injury at point of impact. Meanwhile if you develop any other symptoms of constant nausea, increasing headaches, weakness in limbs or visual problems; please go the ER immediately and get a CT of head done.
Hope you get well soon. Do get back if you have any clarifications. Would be glad to help you.
PS: The medication I prescribed, i.e. Vertin is a prescription medication. You need to meet a GP to get a prescription.
