My Granddaughter was t on the head earlier today. A doctor

Customer Question

My Granddaughter was hit on the head earlier today. A doctor saw her in urgent care. We were given a sheet with symptoms to watch for and told to give her 500mg of Tylenol.
Tonight at 3am in Maine, she is now experience nausea and dizziness and a really bad head ached on the front of her forehead and on the back of her head. She was disoriented at the time that she was hit on the head, feeling sleepy but was unable to sleep this evening.
Urgent care said we should watch for these symptoms. They have now developed 12 hours later. What should we do. We are twonty minutes from the nearest MRI facility. The doctor at the time did not do one as it did not seem necessary, but she was to be watched.

I understand your worry.

Possibly it's concussion.

You can go for CT/MRI head if possible.

You can give her one tylenol now if you have give last dose more than 6 hours ago.

Also give her OTC Zofran for nausea.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
Your satisfaction is our goal.

If symptoms get worse over the time then visit ER again.
