Customer Question

Hi, so I was sledding a few days ago, Friday, and flew off and hit the top of my head. I've been a little dizzy since, but today seems a little worse. I'm trying to look at my computer to work and it's not helping. I'm fine otherwise. I'm really just wondering if I should go to the doctor.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?
Customer: I hit my head 3 days ago and it's been on and off since. Closing my eyes and laying down help. Exerting myself too much makes it worse, getting up to fast, jumping etc
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I don't think so, I'm pretty healthy otherwise

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

A persistent dizziness which has slightly worsened after an head injury need an evaluation by a doctor. After the physical exam, your doctor may determine whether you need a CT scan or MRI or no investigation. This may be just concussion which can cause dizziness and no significant brain injury. But this do warrant an assessment.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
