a little pain in my back no nausea i can tell i hit my head but no pain no bleeding i am worried if i hurt my head internally

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

I am so sorry to hear about injury.

Please watch for the following symptoms: If any the following symptoms appear, then you need to go to ER: Vomiting more than once , Confusion , Drowsiness , Weakness or inability to walk , Severe headache,loss of consciousness, Nausea that doesn't go away.

As you fall on back & hit your head straight back on the floor hardwood floor- Ice the area on and off. Put ice in a plastic bag, wrap the bag in a towel.Do not apply ice directly to the skin. Wrap the icepack in a towel.The cold reduces the blood flow to the area and therefore limits bleeding into the skin and reduces the size of any bruise.

As of now-there does not seem to be any symptom of internal brain injury.

So you need to watch for the above described symptoms.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
