Hi,thanks for the query.Sufficient time has passed after injury ,so major head injury is rules out mostly.At times due to severe blow the head the balance mechanism in your ears gets disturbed, so that you feel unbalanced and at times have a tendency to fall.You can take help of your doctor for some medications and some exercise to stabilize it again.bye.

I had a bad fall, running tripped on chair leg and fell face first left side. 1 ,immed. swelling cut on left on left brow, severe bruising almost instantly. Seen in emg. room. They felt around eye said no broken bones they treaqted cut and sent me home. within the week I was back in emg. due to sleeping most of the time and dizzy, feeling sick. They then did a CT scan, stated a closed head injury. After several visits to the doctor and having my eye checked out, I kept telling the doctor I had swelling on the left side of my head and that my head & ear hurt. I could not lay on the back of my head or the left side of my head and that there were ridges in my head where there weren t before and that my head hurt terrible in those places. The doctor never felt my head where I told him it was so bad . I was then referred to neurologist who ordered MRI. They say I have age arthritist problems in my neck and nothing else showed up. The accident happened 14 months ago. The left side of my head is still swollen - around the ear and up the side of my head and into my temple (had to move the left temple of my glasses out 3/4 to 1 out in order to wear them. This is not a headache, It is Pain in the skull and the bones round the eye My PAIN level has not been below a 4 to 5 and is usually a 7 to 9 even with pain meds. WHAT kind of doctor do I need to see other than one who listens

Okay so a few months ago I had my tonsils out and when I was in the shower I started seeing bright lights and I had to get out and had to get my sister I was seeing all these white spots and I zoned out. A few months after that I was at soccer practice and was found laying on the bathroom floor unresponsive and called 911 and was rushed to the hospital. Ever since when I get up from bed,when I am just walking,when I m just sitting down I fell really dizzy and then I start seeing these bright bright lights moving around and my ears kinda ring and it feels like my brain is floating. I don t know really what I should do or if it s anything serious but it s been happening for a while and I feel like its gotten worse in happening more often?? What do you think it is I m a teenager who plays soccer and is pretty healthy and this is a concern for me hopefully you can help??? Please and thatnkyou,
