14 year old jammed head during basketball practice about

Customer Question

14 year old jammed head during basketball practice about four hours ago. She complained about headache, feeling sick to stomach and sore neck when I picked her up. After that she skateboarded and played but at bedtime an hour ago, she again complained about headache, feeling stomach problems and sore neck.
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: No -- just today she is complaining of headache. She has not thrown up -- just feels like she might
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No -- but concussion is something I worry about - her brother threw a basketball at her head last year

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for her symptoms.
She needs an examination by doctor.
You are right.
Those can be from concussion.
Doctor can decide after examination whether CT would be needed.
I would suggest to take her to hospital.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish her good health..
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
