Hi,
Head injury always considered an emergency in medicine unless prooved otherwise.
You must undergo thorough investigations like CT-Brain or even MRI.
The result will tell us that your symptoms has got any relevance to your fall or no?

Dear Bella,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

The symptoms of internal head injury are

1. Loss of consciousness
2. Vomiting
3. Convulsions ( Fits)
4. ENT Bleeding
5. Severe continous headache and giddiness

Since you do not have these symptoms, the chance of internal head injury is less

So do not worry.

doctor1 MD

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)?
