This may sound weird. I was recently taking my friends garbage

This answer was rated:

This may sound weird. I was recently taking my friends garbage out, and as I was swinging it into the dumpster, it came around and hit me directly on the temple. I was a little shocked, that it actually hurt. It has been three days and I have still been experiencing pain. Should I be concerned? Logically, I think not, but the anxious side of me is worried that I may have done some damage. I did not black out, no vomiting, no double vision. It just still hurts for whatever reason.

Sorry to hear about the accident.

Mysticdoc :

Do you have any blurry vision?

Customer:

No, not that I can recall.

Mysticdoc :

ok.

Mysticdoc :

any swelling?

Customer:

It feels like a small a bump.

Mysticdoc :

ok

Mysticdoc :

this is just the scalp swelling.

Mysticdoc :

you did not hurt your brain.

Mysticdoc :

So no need for concern.

Customer:

Ok. Thank you. That is what I have been telling myself, but I feel more reassured now.

Mysticdoc :

Do not worry.

Mysticdoc :

In case of any brain trauma, you will have other neurological signs.

Mysticdoc :

The pain also worsens over time.

Mysticdoc :

You have none of these signs.

Mysticdoc :

So this is just contusion --nothing serious.

Customer:

Thanks. I think it is probably my anxiety more than anything.

Mysticdoc :

yes that is correct

Mysticdoc :

this is expected.

Mysticdoc :

But logically, this is not concerning.
