I was playing golf and walking off the tee to the cart down

Customer Question

I was playing golf and walking off the tee to the cart down a small incline. The grass was wet and I slipped hitting the back of my head pretty hard, but the ground was soft. I never lost consciousness and was just a little dizzy. A few minutes later, a slightly yellow to clear liquid came out of my nose and ran for a second. It has not run since and this was about 1.5 hours ago. I have a stiff neck, but feel fine otherwise.

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
The fluid which came out from nose was likely to be sinus fluid. Still I would be cautious for next 2-3 days, as there is a possibility of concussion. There is a condition called as CSF rhinorrhea, which is leak of brain fluid through the nose (which has same color). It occurs when there is a fracture of base of skull bone. Also neck stiffness need an evaluation. So I would recommend a x-ray of skull bones and neck spine today at an urgent care clinic or emergency room.
