Last night I t top left side of my head on an open kitchen

Customer Question

Last night I hit top left side of my head on an open kitchen door. The area did not develop a bump but it almost feels soft. The pain is extreme. If I touch the area it feels like a knife is being inserted. I have been feeling nausea most of the day. Shoul I have this looked at in the ER ?

It is probably the best idea to have this looked at in the ER. It is probably no more than a mild concussion, but hemorrhaging needs to be ruled out, especially since you are in excruciating pain.

Best regards,
