Confusion, Dizziness And Often Clear Fluid From The Nose?
I had a car accident in 2012. I broke my hand bone, and hit my head hard. But the only thing that can be handled is a broken hand bone, while the head has no treatment at all. Though when my head the back of the structure feels different, it’s a bit soft, the family knows, but I’m not doing anything. I am often confused, dizzy, depressed, often clear fluid from the nose, even though I did not have the flu, and so forth. The symptoms are felt until now, 2019. Is that really the result of the collision? And if that’s the case, what doctor should I see?
Thank you for the question.
A history of hard headaches, though quite alarming, actually does not always refer to dangerous conditions. Doctors who examine you directly, with the competence and experience they have, certainly better understand which conditions are dangerous and which are not, and what treatment needs to be done related to your condition at that time. Typically, head bumps are dangerous if they involve significant speed and height, cause deformities in the shape of the head, or also cause other severe complaints, such as loss of consciousness, seizures, mental confusion, severe headaches, vomiting, bleeding from the eyes, nose, or mouth, and so on.
Your nose that often emits clear fluid, accompanied by dizziness, and psychological disorders that you experience, it can indeed occur due to the impact of the impact you have experienced before. However, not only that, other factors such as rhinosinusitis, allergies, viral or bacterial infections, drug side effects, immune disorders, drug side effects, psychiatric disorders, and so on can also trigger complaints like this.
To be clear, it's a good idea to check back with your doctor or ENT specialist, right? Through physical examination, X-rays, allergy tests, CT scans, nasal endoscopy, or other supporting tests, the best treatment can generally be given. It could also, later the doctor will coordinate with a neurologist or psychiatrist in giving you the best treatment.
In the meantime, the best thing to do is:
Take paracetamol when you feel dizzy and have quite severe headaches
Do not exaggerate the head that has been hit
Avoid exposure to cold temperatures, dry air, and other allergens
Drink plenty of warm water and eat balanced nutritious food
Make yourself calmer, like by exercising a lot, doing hobbies, worshiping more diligently, and hanging out with relatives you care about
Do not smoke
Live a healthy and balanced lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
