Dizziness After An Accident Hit The Back Of The Head?
Hello. I want to ask, last night I had an accident, my head hit the asphalt back. After that incident, I felt dizzy, had a headache, then my body felt unbalanced, and felt tired. Until now I felt the same way but it felt more painful than before. How is the doctor’s response?
Good evening siva.nazwah, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Read your complaints and history, then you should check your current condition, because in the medical world, basically every head injury, even minor injuries, must still be examined and observed in the first 24 hours after the incident due to some damage caused by head injury can appear for a long time after a collision.
Complaints that you feel at this time may also be caused by pain due to a hard impact on the head bone, minor injury to the cerebellum, or bleeding in some brain tissue. Therefore, as has been said before, it is recommended that you see a doctor for an evaluation of your condition. The doctor may also recommend that you do additional tests such as head X-ray or CT-Scan of the head to determine how the condition of your head bones and brain. After being confirmed, then it can be determined whether you need treatment or other actions to resolve your complaint.
In the meantime, rest first while the complaint is still felt. Don't do strenuous activities first. Avoid back injuries to your head. If the complaint is felt more severe or is accompanied by vomiting, increased pain when on the move / straining, weakness of one part of the body, or a decrease in consciousness, immediately go to the hospital emergency room to get first aid.
I hope this helps.
