I was playing flag football today and a man full out ran me

Customer Question

Hi so I was playing flag football today and a man full out ran me over. He hit the whole right side of my face and I saw stars for a few seconds I got up walked off the field by myself without any assistance. My neck is a little stiff and that half of my face tingled for a little while now it has stopped tingling and a black eye is just now forming. And now it's been a little over 2 hours since it happened and I have a slight head ache
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: No nausea and what do you mean by the head ache question? I usually don't get a lot or any head aches throughout the day
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nope

Someone is with me but if I am asleep when they check in on me how can they tell if I'm too sleepy?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 month ago.

They need to ask your name, place where you are, time and if you recognize the person by his name. This is called orientation of time, place and person.
