Customer Question

I slamed my head in a van door on Friday. In doing so, I cut the inside of my ear in two places. I had ringing in my head then and my head is sore, but I haven't had any severe headaches. I'm concerned because I have had two bad concussions. I'm also taking some new meds which are supposed to help keep me from getting too emotional, but I have been very emotional since this happened. I was afraid to go to emergency and find I've had another concussion. Now I wonder if I shouldn't go just to be sure. What do you advise?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Given your history of past concussions, and this recent injury, you should go to the ER for a clinical evaluation.
The impact was significant and hence there is risk for intracranial bleeding.
This is possible even without severe headache.
So, better to be on the safe side.
