01/28/09 wednesday morning went to ER have MRI show no sign of blood clot or fracture.....felt dizzy still vomiting....but feel feverish and tired
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 8 years ago.
Thank you for the information,

The cause of the fever does not seem to be related to the fall.

Bump on the back of the head can be due to inflammation from trauma but that will unlikely to have such effect.

The fever & tiredness can be due to a viral illness.

You can try tylenol or advil as you have taken & rest.

If the fever gets high or if there is any vomiting you should have a consultation with doctor.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.

if the fever persisted....should go to ER and have another MRI
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 8 years ago.
If the fever persists then you can go to ER / urgent care for an examination.

If doctor finds any neurological sign after clinical examination then he can advise repeat MRI.
