Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Based on the level of awareness of the patient after the injury, head injuries are classified into 3, namely mild, moderate, and severe. If you are fully conscious after an injury, it means that the condition you are experiencing can be classified as minor head injury (CKR).
Minor head injuries rarely cause permanent and dangerous brain damage. The complaints you feel, namely dizziness, chills, and nausea may occur related to the adaptation process in the brain after injury. In general, these complaints will improve within 1 to 3 days.
Ideally, after a head injury, you need to go to a doctor immediately so that you can evaluate for possible dangerous conditions. In addition to doing a thorough physical examination, your doctor may also recommend that you undergo X-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so on. You don't need to go to the hospital immediately. You can check with a doctor first at the nearest health facility that is easy to reach. The doctor will later determine the best treatment according to your condition in general.
In the meantime, there are no specific steps we can suggest. However, you should go through the following tips:
Take paracetamol to relieve dizziness and chills
Get plenty of rest, if necessary, do bed rest
Don't drive alone just yet
Get regular sleep
Eat regularly, not too much (medium portion)
If the nausea is still quite severe, reduce consumption of spicy foods, tubers, mustard greens, cabbage, and coconut milk.
Avoid excessive caffeine
Stay away from alcohol and drugs
In order to prevent the risk of recurring head injury, use a helmet that fits the standard and use caution when driving
If later complaints arise, such as unbearable headaches, body temperature rises above 37.5 degrees Celsius, vomiting, seizures, neck stiffness, or decreased consciousness, you should check with your doctor again.
I hope this helps.
