My 17 yo daughter was t on top of the head with a basketball

Customer Question

My 17 yo daughter was hit on top of the head with a basketball last night, while just playing around with neighbors. She had a headache last night. Today she says her head hurts, it hurts to open her eyes and she is a little nauseous. She gets migraines once in a while, so I'm inclined to think that's what it is, but I don't want to ignore something more serious.
JA: Did you have a recent injury to the eye? How is your vision?
Customer: vision is 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 Neurologist about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi and welcome.

Headache is usual after head trauma but painful eye opening and nausea is something you should be concerned. I would recommend you to take her to ER for thorough examination so that anything serious can be ruled out.
