Customer Question
I believe I have...

I believe I have a concussion. I'm not sure what to do. I'm prone to getting them. A volleyball at a very high speed hit me in the head tonight in the eye/temple. I was also drinking. Despite the alcohol, my head still really, really hurts.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

Less than six months ago. In general it's been fine.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

The last concussion I received was really bad. I stopped breathing in the ambulance. I'm also on a lot of medications for hereditary spastic paraplegia.

You need to go to hospital as a repeat concussion and heal impacts with significant headache need a CT scan or MRI for the evaluation.

Your medications and alcohol can modify the symptoms; and severity may not be assessed.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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

Thanks for using Just Answer.
