I slipped and hit my head on the ground at the right

Customer Question
Hi I slipped and hit...
Hi I slipped and hit my head on the ground at the right parietal bone. This was about 3 hours ago and I haven't experienced any weird symptoms. Other than a painful bump on my head, right when I hit my head there was a slight ringing in my right ear. I don't know if I'm allowed to sleep or if I should go to the ER right away...

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Probably no significant damage.

However first 12 hours observation is critical for any delayed response, black outs, sudden headache onset.

Sleeping is ok as long as someone is watching over you and can wake you up normally.

Otherwise, better to go to ER if no one is around you.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
