My head injured, felt dizziness, sore neck, vision unstable. Do I need to see a doctor?


I fell on the back of my head while playing soccer yesterday. I was dizzy for a few seconds then continued on for the rest of the game. This morning, I woke up with sore neck and my vision is a little unstable. No vomiting, no difficulty to speak. I am afraid I have a concussion or an internal bleeding. I am in my early forty and healthy. Should I go to the doctor?

Thank you for the query.

Yes, you should see your doctor. As brain is completely hidden under the skull you can not be sure what is happening inside without head CT. Especially after the trauma. Of course there is plenty of neurological tests and symptoms but neither of them does not give 100% certainty that there is no internal bleeding. Vision problem can be the only symptom of such bleeding.
Sore neck is typical for such traumas, however in some cases during the CT some fractures of this part are reveled.

That is why I suggest you to do not wait anymore and visit your doctor. Waiting is too risky.

Hope this will help.
