Around 3 hours ago...

Around 3 hours ago this morning I got bumped on the head with a gift I was helping someone put away

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I didn't think it was that hard, but got a headache where I was hit immediately and still have a headache

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Is the headache general or just at the place of impact?

Do you feel any nausea, vomiting or dizziness?

Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

Headache is something expected with such an accident but as you do not experience any of danger signs like nausea, vomiting, dizziness or loss of consciousness, there is nothing much to worry about. You can take tylenol and headache should get better in a day. just keep a check for mentioned signs. Nothing much to worry about for now. You can apply ibuprofen cream over the affected area.

If you get hit in the head and then have a headache after, is that automatically a concussion?
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

No, that does not necessarily means concussion.

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.
