welcome to just answer
are you present online?
can you give me some more information regarding your question?
was your vision blurry after the concussion?
why did you have the coccusiion- accident?
I fell and hit my forehead I was unconscious for 3 seconds and had a normal CT scan with in 24 hours.
is the blurring of vision worsening since the last 2 weeks after concussion
I have moments when I don't remember how I got where I got... ie. bedroom to garage. Yes vision is worse.
any other worsening of symptoms like headache, subsequent dizziness or loss of tenaciousness?
My head hurts very badly. I am not sure abt. the consciousness.
are you having any other symptoms like discharge, redness of eyes etc?
I know that I sometimes don't remember going to sleep and wake up in weird places. My eyes are red/pink and have white/yellowish stuff discharging form them. They are very puffy. I cough a lot too.
thanks for the information
since your CT scan was normal after the injury, it rules out any serious problem like bleeding etc in the brain
the symptoms of concussion like headache, vision blurriness, disorientation etc will take time to recover
I am glad.. what is going on then? I am very concerned. I am worried I will not recover.
as far as redness and discharge are concerned with puffiness of eyes, you might have developed an eye infection or conjunctivitis
I have a strange question...
If I hit my forehead, could I get an infection in sinuses that could spread to my eyes?
an injury would not cause sinusitis
but can cause some bleeding in sinuses
for the eyes, you need antibiotic eye drops after consulting your ophthalmologist
but in the meantime you can use lubricating eye drops like refresh tears/optive etc for temporary relief
If I was bleeding in sinuses how would I know.... I had upset stomach but no blood from my nose.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX bought lubricating eye drops.. Now I will. My regular doctor will not see me until Friday and I am in so much pain.
glad to be of help
hope you get well soon
TY... I wish there was a real answer.... Your expertize was dhelpful.
you are welcome
Are you sure there is nothing to be done except wait?
The pain is very bad.
is the pain more of headache or in the eyes?
Headache... and the spine.
Ears too and upper jaw
what pain killers are you on?
Tylenol only now. I was on Hydrocodone 5/500 2 times a day until 2 days ago.
tylenol would help in minor pains
hydrocodone was a good painkiller for post concussion pains
you can try taking ibuprofen
alomg with tylenol
I wish I could get help for this... It feels like my spine is loose and all the muscles are strained. My head is terrible... the pain. I will try Tylenol and Advil thanks.
My concern is there may be something more serious. Is that possible? I hope I am not losing my mind.
since there are no further episodes of loss of conciousness, vomiting etc, there should not be anything serious
Are you sure?
but given your symptoms you do need a complete neurological examination when you visit your doctor
since i am not able to examine you first hand and can rely only on your description of symptoms given, I cannot be 100% sure
concussion can take time to recover in some patients
I will get that, thanks. I am now going to hit accept. Please have a good day and pray for my recovery. I am not sure I will. I have never had this much pain and other confusing symptoms.
