911Doctor :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

911Doctor :

there's nothing about marijuana that will make the results of your concussion worse.

Customer: Okay. Is there anything that might hurt the healing process?
911Doctor :


911Doctor :

how severe was your concussion/

911Doctor :


911Doctor :

how did it happen?

911Doctor :

how long were you unconscious?

Customer: I repeatrly hit my head on a short door (was on vacation and French people build shorter houses than I'm familiar with) hit my head 5-6 times over 2 weeks. The last was 10 days ago. No loss of conscious and I have had ct scans and mr that showed that everything was okay
Customer: Now I just have mild headaches that come and go, randomly it seems.
911Doctor :

then you have nothing to worry about and i wouldn't even say you had a concussion .

911Doctor :

except for the headaches...

911Doctor :

but with a normal ct scan you are okay.

Customer: Okay. Do you know how long it might take for the headaches to go away? (if I read or use the computer for a longer period of time I get intense headaches)
911Doctor :

no way to answer that.

911Doctor :

some folks have headaches for months or even years.

911Doctor :

does tylenol or motrin help?

Customer: Paracetamol helps haven't tried others
911Doctor :

then that is fine to take....

911Doctor :

and by the way, i have been to your country, it's wonderful... my sincere condolences over that madman going on a rampage yesterday.

Customer: Thank you. It's one of the saddest days in history. Just to make sure, you are an actual doctor right?
911Doctor :

Customer: Ok thank you ! I will now accept
911Doctor :
