Hi, this is Dr Stan, here to help you.Board Certified with 40 years of Patient Care. I will respond with my answer shortly. Thank you.
From what you have said, I will assume you did not seek any medical attention after hitting your head. You are describing either a concussion or a possible small bleed in your head which would account for your symptoms. You need an MRI, MRA and neurological evaluation which you can get at an Urgent Care Center. I am here to answer additional questions. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars so I get credit for my response.
That is a possibility. What is your age. Regardless, you need to have this evaluated sooner than later.
Based on your age and the history of trauma, tumor would be low on my list of causes. The anxiety would not cause these symptoms either.
A small slow cortical bleed can have symptoms weeks after the initial trauma. Are you still having the "high stress and anxiety"? You don't want to have a permanent problem because of the trauma when it can be avoided by having it evaluated.
I can only advise you to be evaluated in an Urgent Care Center today. If the MRI, MRA and neurological tests are negative, then you can deal with the stress and anxiety.
Yes, a concussion alone can cause these symptoms.
The burning sensation is unrelated to your current problem. What medicine do you take?
When you go to the urgent care, discuss the anxiety issue after your neurological symptoms are evaluated.
Are you feeling better? Did you seek medical attention?
How are you feeling?
