Customer Question

I was squatting down to put some mail in a bin under the counter at work and stood up quickly and really hit the back of my head hard on the corner of the counter. Since then I have been very dizzy...rather like vertigo, I have a headache in the area I hit my head, I feel nauseous and very restless. I am clammy and shaky. Do I need to be seen?

Thank you for your question, in most cases these symptoms last for less than 24 hours if these symptoms last more than 24 hours or are increasing in severity then you have to seek emergency care.
