Customer Question

I Was biking yesterday for few hours. I fell down, I got up fine but then after few minutes, I became unconscious. My friends put water on me, tried to talk to me. I threw up. And right after throwing up, I regained consciousness. What might have happened. I didn't hit my head when I fell. I have slight bruising on the knee.

Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but you have to get examined by a doctor right away. This could have been a case of dehydration or maybe even heat stroke, or something called a vasovagal attack, but you could have sustained a concussion even if you didn't hit your head and even now you could possibly have a bleed in your brain even if you feel fine. It just would be prudent to get checked out today.
