Hello. Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
It's always a bit nerve-wracking when one of our children sustains a significant injury and we parents are left wondering what symptoms could herald a catastrophe and what behaviors are normal. This is particularly true of head injuries, which frequently cause headaches
, sleepiness, nausea and even memory problems for several days.
Although we rarely see serious complications following ground-level falls, a fall from a trampoline is another matter. The bottom line here is this: unusual behavior, confusion, disorientation
, extreme irritability, severe headache
, neck pain
, lethargy or any other worrisome symptom following a fall from a height is worth at least a call to your physician. He/she may want to evaluate your son, or you might be referred back to the ER.
I hope that helps, and I hope your son does well!
