Hi, today I had a strange spell at work. I was feeling fine and then couldn t speak properly - I drew a total blank on words that I use everyday and it took me ten minutes getting myself together to be able to speak a particular word I was stuck on (I could have spelt it in my head but couldn t for the life of me say it). After this, I felt a bit slow and fuzzy and jumbled up some more words...I got a head ache and some pins and needles in my hand and face so I went home to bed. It was quite scary - is there anything I need to worry about here?

hLast night I was walking in a gymnasium and someone kicked a soccer ball. Apparently the ball hit me in the back of my head where my skull and spine meet. I don t remember just before it, but I do remember a very warm feeling and a feeling of impact but no pain at all. At the same moment I felt the warmth, everything went black and I felt like I was floating. I was told that I actually took one step forward and crumpled to the ground and then curled up in a fetal like position. The next thing I remember is someone standing in front of me talking to someone else. I was laying on the floor and felt like I was falling. I knew I wasn t because of the hard floor, so I told them I needed to sit up. I looked up and thought the chairs were right in front of me, but apparently they were about 15 feet away. Someone brought me a chair and helped me sit. Later (I have no concept of time, but I was told that it was about 20 minutes later) it was time to go. I was frustrated because I knew I needed my keys and belongings but could not find the words to explain what they were. Someone handed me one of my belongings and then tried to hand me my keys. I just kept saying I can t but couldn t figure out why I couldn t take them. Then I realized that my belongings were in my left hand and my right arm was not moving (not from pain). After I realized this I had to think very hard about lifting my right arm - which I did but it felt so very heavy and it felt like a lot of hard work. Someone asked me when my birthday was and I told them Tuesday . About an hour after the impact I had a severe headache , that lasted just a short while - and extreme fatigue ... some nausea , but no vomiting . What concerns me the most is that when I touch the right side of my head and the left side (with my hands) the right side feels very tiny in my hand (although others assure me that it is not smaller.) Today at work (less than 24 hours after impact) I had a very hard time putting coherent words together, unless it was from what is already scripted. I am a single mom and have no insurance. I don t want to go to the Dr. needlessly. From what I assume, this would just be treated by taking things easy and not getting hit on the head again. Do my symptoms sound like I should visit the Dr. (or should it just be ER?) and what would any possible treatment be other than taking things easy? Thanks

My little boy is an only child, has not had any preschool, daycare, etc..anything that involves being in a setting around a bunch of other children. Kindergarten is his first experience in such a setting. He is not as developed in social areas, expressing himself, carrying on conversations, etc. He rarely brings up things he did each day, without us asking him..and he tends to repeat the questions we ask him, back to us, rather than answer..He is always wanting to learn, asking how to spell different words, and writing.. He is really into learning his letters, sight words, spelling, and writing the different words, drawing the different shapes, and he retains the information very well. I am confused. I am scared. His teacher said the other children baby him, and that she feels he may be Developmentally delayed . I spoke with his pediatrician, and she thinks the teacher is jumping to conclusions and making worry too soon, but I cant help but worry. He is left hand dominant, I don t know if that matters, and he does sometimes write things completely backwards , I mean perfectly mirrored. His father (my husband) is dyslexic and had ADD, I had ADHD , I don t know if that could have anything to do with it. Also, his fine motor skills are on level. Any advice?
