Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Concussion injury improves with time.
If there is no vision loss and eye is not proposed, the symptoms will improve.
Consult to a doctor if symptoms worsens.

I suffered a concussion a little over a weak ago. was checked by a doc in the office and was advised to to monitor for awhile. I don t have any severe symptoms (no throwing up, no really painful headaches, normal motor skills). but I do have this constant pressure (kind of like sinus pressure over my right eye and into my right ear. It s not painful but annoying. is this normal? if now what should I do.

After receiving a concussion from a fall is feeling temporary pressure behind the eyes when standing a possible side effect from the concussion. I was released from the hospital after being under 24 hr observation because a cat scan I had for a concussion came back a little irregular. Anyway, I was diagnosed with a concussion and now this seems to be the only problem I m having at the moment. Did not have the pressure before the fall and subsequent concussion.

Any idea what it could be?

can a concussion somehow be linked to diarrhea? my son fell and hit his head about 24 hours ago, he had a bad headache for about 3 hours afterwards. he felt better this morning, but throughout the day his headache has gotten worse again, and he now has diarrhea, and he vomited once. this is about 24 hours later. could it just be coincidence?

My doc told me that I m having Intestinal pseudoobstruction & advised using enema fleet once every 3-4days. Btw, I m a tetraplegia due to spinal cord injury 14yrs ago & underwent a sub-total colostomy a year ago. Before the intestinal operation, I had to use suppositories every day over the 13years. After the intestinal operation, my bowel movement was like 3 to 4 times a day which I had no control over it. And now no bowel movement without enema fleet. My question is, is it ok for my body in the long run if I clear my bowel movement once every 3 to 4 days? Is it better for my body if I were to clear my bowel movement daily using suppositories (Like in the past)?
