Hi. I was at the crossfit gym today. Hit my head above the left temple in the end if a,metal barbell on a,rack. Hurt a lot, but went away a d i did my workout, lifting, humping running. Now I have pain, and it hurts when I chew or bite down. Vision is,fine, no probs eating. Have a bump in the area. Feel congested in sinuses but of an earache. Am also treating for lyme. Should I be concerned? .this happened 8 hrs ago.

Humping was supposed to be jumping!

It is most likely just a bruise. This does not sound like an injury to the intra cranial structures.

For head injuries, you should have dizziness, nausea, loss of consciousness, bleeding from the ear, nose or throat etc.

Soft tissue bruise especially on the temple can cause pain while chewing since the temporalis muscle, which is a muscle of mastication originates from the temporal fossa. Any bruise in this area will cause pain during chewing.

Rest assured and keep yourself hydrated. You should be fine.

Hope this helps.
