Head injury, severe headache, hearing echo voices in ears. Taken paracetamol. Treatment?

Earlier today, around ten am, I hit my head quite hard. Nearly five hours later and I have had a persistent bad headache . Now when people speak, including myself, the voices echo in my head. I am fourteen. I just took some paracetamol . Will the echoes stop if my headache goes? Do they mean it s anything more serious or am I just bring paranoid?

Hello and welcome,

In almost all cases of head injuries we keep the patient under observation or advise the patient and family to report the development of any symptoms like vomiting, heavy head, dizziness, concussions, loss of consciousness, etc.

From your presentation, there could be a possibility that you have sustained an injury of some sort. Even if not to your brain, it could be to your ear.

I would advise you to visit the nearest hospital for both a scan of your head as well as an examination by an ENT (ear, nose, throat) specialist to rule out the worst.

Although paracetamol is considered to be a pain killer, it might not relieve you of your symptoms. Kindly visit a hospital at the earliest.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.

Hi thanks for your question.
Persistent head ache and echoing in ear after head trauma should not be taken lightly.Paracetamol will give you relief for sometime but will not cure your basic problem ,if you have developed one following head trauma.Rush to hoapital and get your CT head done to rule out any bleeding inside your head.If CT is normal you can take paractamol with ease.Hope this answers your question.
