Banged my head :(

I really banged my head last night on the corner of a wall. Today i've been feeling spaced out, drowsy but really agitated and i had trouble focussing for a little while.

Can i get concussion from hitting my head like that?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Sounds like it, you must have really given your brain a shake. Might be worth a trip to the docs.

    lol If you've hit your head, then you've hit your head. I doesn't matter how you did it. I would get that checked out though. Better to be safe than sorry and all that jazz.

    You should get it checked out for definate. If you're in doubt ring NHS helpline and they'll advise you better than we can on whether you need medical assistance

    I'd definitely always get stuff like this checked out, especially with the weird feelings. You can never be too careful with your heed!

    Yeah definitely get it checked out, you don't want to be collapsing somewhere and banging your head again resulting in more serious injuries or even death.

    Err on the side of caution where head injuries are concerned, mate. They're a really difficult thing to judge and while you might think we're being big ole hypochondriacs it'd be wrong to advise you to just wait it out as no one would want to be even partly responsible for your death (ok, I wouldn't, anyway :razz:) So yeah, always best to be on the safe side.

    Don't feel daft or like you're overreacting if you go to A&E, but if you do decide you don't want to go to the hospital then please make sure you have someone who can check on you regularly through the night if you continue to feel spaced out and dizzy. I'm sure your family will just LOVE you, but it's worth being vigilant :thumb:
