I slipped and fell climbing down a large rock and hit the right side of my face on the rock 3 days ago. I got a bloody nose & a sprained wrist but no loss of consciousness or headaches or anything. Since then I've been ok other than some blood in my phlegm sometimes. This morning I woke up, 3 days later, & my right eye is starting to swell up. Is it normal for the swelling to take this long to begin?

hello, i hit my head hard against a metallic window edge and it bleed quite a bit. i'm fine now and i got over the initial symptoms of nausea and shock. i got an appointment with a doctor tomorrow. Is there honestly a big chance of me being seriously damaged? I don't think there is but naturally i appreciate an expert opinion

doctor1 MD

Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Generally it is thought that if the trauma has not caused loss of consciousness, no brain injury should be present. But this is just a theory. I have seen many patients with head trauma and XXXXXXX bleeding who did not have loss of consciousness. It is because...

I am taking blood pressure emdications, and a depressant which is viibrid 40 mg. There may be no connection, but am inquiring about a health incident , and wondering if it might be linked to vibrid.
Over the past five or six months months I have had three brief (lasting two to three seconds maximum) incidents when I lie down at bed time where it is as if there is a loud internal noise somewhat like a clunking noise and a startled involuntary muscle response to neck andf head regions. Two nights ago, I experienced that sensation, and then immediately thereafter it continued into a deeper more encompassing involuntary muscle twitching of arms. I was aware of the jerking, but not completely ascertained as to other exact mental thoughts at that time, it was dark in the bedroom as I was going to bed, was lying down, felt as if there was a weight/force pushing me into the pillow. Duration maybe five seconds, no muscle weakness, or pain afterwards.
Extremely minor sense of nausea the following day, but drove from California to Idaho (thirteen hours) the next day with appetite, normal energy.
The above is the major event I am seeking thoughts about. First such memory of the minor characteristics described was early spring, today is August 21. The evening of the more alarming twitching/convulsions was the eighteenth. Only other health deviation is three incidents this summer was my eyes felt itchy, and after rubbing, there was eye pain. Discomfort was significant, itchiness so pronounded that the rubbing then seemed to irritate, make eyes sore, or was the soreness thats evere and the rubbing had nothing to do with the eyes.......seemed as if teh rubbing irritated, and added to the discomfort. Thgis is not mentioned as to seeking a response, merely added in case it anyways provide a link to the more important to me incident "clunking noise" somewhat similar to a computer program attempting to be clsoed and the action is not allowed as the computer freezes up.
My apprehension is a tumor. Until this incident on the eighteenth the other incidents were minor, non worsening, and more than two months in the past. I have an appointment with a nurse practicioner on the twenty-fourth, my doctor is on vacation, which was scheduled to inquire about vibrid as the depression at times seems as if it is going to return. Don't really want to mention this at that time as to effects it would have on commute, securing of life insurance, and cost if it could possibly be an isolated event.......not sure where I was on vacation if I took two pills that day.
You wrote "one possibility of complex partial seizure needs to be evaluated. What might that be?
Bone of the other events asked......headache,loss of consciousness. etc have been experienced. You wrote encouragingly, though I recognize it is not known at this time, "that no indication of brain tumor at rpesent and nothing seems to be of serious nature." Hopefully both are true of course, but if correct, what migh explain such an occurrences.
Thanks You.

I am 55 and have depression and anxiety symptoms. Also had a spinal fusion C5/6 last Feb for spondylosis. Was referred to PT for treatment to relive remaining numbness but he suggested seeing neurologist. Saw a neurologist who was dismissive of my problems which are trouble swallowing, poor hand/eye coordination, severe constipation and autonomic nervous system symptoms of tachycardia and excessive sweating. Collapsed in street a few weeks ago and had glucose level in blood of 3.1- banged back of skull but was not concussed although had momentary loss of consciousness. I have a feeling that I could have Parkinsons disease- 2 odd facts being a sudden craving for bananas, which I hated before and starting to smoke for first time-I have read that these 2 things raise Dopamine levels. Have MRI booked for 5/4 but understand that PD doesn t show up on them. From these details, what do you think?

Hi, I had a question about my father's health, who has had 2 seizures in the past 8 months.
In Jan 2010 he had one attack of loss of consciousness & had a fall with slight numbing on one side of the body. The hospital said it was a mild stroke, and got him on blood thinners & blood pressure control tablets. Again in August he had one more fall, short loss of consciousness. This time the doctors say it is a case of mild epilepsy. (with 2 episodes of transient LOC & syncopal attack, conflict partial seizure)
The medicines prescribed are valparin 200 mg, alkalets, eptoin 100.
I would like to know the following
1. What is the possibility of recurrence?
2. Is it okay to leave him unsupervised?
3. How serious/ life-threatening can this become?
