Customer Question

I fell and hit the back of my head on the concrete sidewalk. I am not dizzy and did not lose consciousness. I feel fine and there is no immediate swelling in the area. I am bleeding but my friend says it looks like a bad scrape. Should I be concerned?

best to see a doctor at the ER and get checked.

and get a brain CT scan to check for subdural hematoma bleed on the inside of the brain.
