Customer Question

I didn't realize kids removed back cushions from couch and when sat down quickly, my head hit the wall on upper left backside of head. My head felt numb in that area, my neck was immediately in pain, now subsided, the bridge of my nose even hurt. My head still hurts, still a little numbing sensation. No dizziness or nausea. Should there be cause for alarm?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the pain? Does the pain affect your breathing?
Customer: About 1.5 hours... breathing ok
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Thank you for your question.

Is there any swelling or bump?

Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.
As there is no other symptom, there is unlikely a major injury.
You need not to worry.
There can be a sudden jerking from hitting.
You can apply ice.
This needs to be applied after wrapping in towel or cloth.
This will prevent cold injury.
Tylenol can be taken for pain.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor if you develop any other symp***** *****ke nausea, vomiting, weakness of some part, vision problem etc.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
