Hello. Thanks for asking from HCM.
I can understand your concern. As per your history, you are most probably having "concussion injury".
Concussion injury is a type of blunt head injury
which is usually associated with momentary loss of consciousness
, memory deficit without any visible injury to brain. It can cause dizziness, headache, memory problems, confusion for some time. It is a mild type of head injury. Recovery is the rule. Bed rest and painkillers are sufficient for it.
Sometimes even mild head injury can cause dizziness and headache for few days. It will resolve on its own. It is good that you did not have any features of dangerous head injury.
To fasten relief, you can follow few tips at home
: Maintain proper hydration. Dehydration
leads to vertigo and light headedness
: Avoid pressure on repeat injury at previous injury site
: Bed rest
: Gradually start exercise to increase vasomotor tone. It will prevent postural hypotension
: For pain, you can take painkiller like Diclofenac
sodium after proper prescription.
: For dizziness, you can take beta-histine or Cinnarizine
after proper prescription
Hope it will help you. Still no relief, you should consult doctor
. He may advise CT head to rule out any injury to brain or fracture. Further management will be decided after CT report.
Thanks. Take care.
