My son fell out...

My son fell out of bed this morning and hit his head. He is co.plaining of a headache and has recently vomited. Should we take him to the emergency room? Our only concern is we are from British Columbia and are visiting Ontario.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has your son had the headache? Has he used any medication for it?

Started shortly after. He did not want medicine so I didn't push it

Doctor's Assistant: Has he seen a doctor about the headache?

He has not

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

He has 22q deletion syndrome. Unrelated I am sure

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.

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.
