mysticdoc :

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Clean CT scan rules out any intra cranial bleeding as possible cause.

mysticdoc :

Concussion causes inflammation of the brain from the trauma.

mysticdoc :

This may cause headaches, vibration sensation.

mysticdoc :

The symptoms will take some time to subside.

mysticdoc :

When did you suffer the injury?

JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : Five days ago
mysticdoc :

ok

mysticdoc :

then your symptoms should gradually improve by next week.

JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : Having trouble focusing vision and am vomiting
mysticdoc :

These are part of post concussion syndrome.

mysticdoc :

normal CT scan after 5 days is reassuring.

mysticdoc :

Once the inflammation of the brain decreases, then symptoms will improve.

mysticdoc :

Anti inflammatories like ibuprofen can be used.

mysticdoc :

Anti nausea medication also should be considered.

JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : the dr said I should go back if things got worse. Is there a point or it will all clear up?
JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : I am scared to close my eyes
JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : Afraid I will pass out5
JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : Hello??
mysticdoc :

do not worry.

mysticdoc :

normal CT scan rules out the intracranial bleeding.

mysticdoc :

If your symptoms are still worse by next week, then you should go back to your doctor.

JACUSTOMER-jfep1dtj- : Isn't it better to be safe
mysticdoc :

Yes of course.

mysticdoc :

That is why you had the Ct scan.

mysticdoc :

you can also get a clinical evaluation in the ER.

mysticdoc :

But these symptoms are expected following concussion.

mysticdoc :

Nothing unusual.

mysticdoc :
