I was hit at...

I was hit at close range on the top left side of my head on Friday, 05/11/2018. Now, 40 plus hours later, (Sunday, 05/13/2018) I'm experiencing headache, nausea, dizziness, and extremely off balance (equilibrium). Could I have a concussion and should I go to the RE room or urgent care?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Both episodic

Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Given your symptoms and the severity of them, I would STRONGLY suggest that you go to the ER and get a CT scan of the brain done. While this is likely to be a severe concussion, it can be a subacute subdural hematoma in the brain, which is bleeding outside the brain(between the skull and the brain) which could be causing compression of the brain itself.

This is why it is extremely important to head to the ER and get a CT scan of the brain done. This is likely a severe concussion however a bleed NEEDS to be ruled out as soon as possible.

Do you have any more questions?

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!!
