If a similar patient comes to my OPD, I would first inquire about a history of loss of consciousness and vomiting. as you tell she was fine, I hope there is nothing to worry. Just make sure that her daily activities is normal and she is playful.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

My office desk has an overhead compartment with doors. i left the door open, raised up from my chair and hit my head hard on the open door. There was some bleeding. when feeling there is a dent and some spotting of blood when I apply pressure with a paper towel. I do not feel dizzy. Should I be concerned?

A friend of mine fell and hit her head dancing last night. Today she fainted walking to turn in a paper in class, has pain and sees black spots when she looks right (the same side she hit), has thrown up a few times. there is no swelling but there is pain when it is touched. Her pupils are dilating equally on both sides. she is exhibiting no confusion and can state her name, the date, who i am, etc. no trouble walking except for feeling dizzy and when she fainted. slept fine and was easy to wake during the night and this morning. Should we be concerned and take her to the doctor? She took extra strength advil last night and stated some relief of pain but it did not go away.

I hit my head really bad and got a bump thats purple from it, and i slept on it and woke up to a black eye, and every day since the black eye keeps getting worse. Yesterday I woke up with blood in my eye too. Its been 4 days since I first got the black eye and it keeps getting larger/darker. I went to the doctors when it first happened and they said it should be fine. Now that I woke up to a bloody eye I m a little worried. Should I be concerned?
