I fell and hit...

I fell and hit my head about 12 hours ago. I was a bit dazed, but did not lose consciousness. I have had a headache for the salt 3 or 4 hours. No blurry vision. My pupils are even. No nausea. Should I be conserned?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Have you been having any headaches?

The fall was about 12 hours ago. The headache started about 3 hours ago.

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

No. I am generally healthy. 75 years old.

Sorry for the delay. I was distracted by guests.

And I picked up on your other page

At this point I think you're fine but if in the next few hours your headache worsens or you get balance or nausea problems or excessive drowsiness you'd need to see a doctor

After a few more hours if you don't get any of those then you're fine

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
