Hello Fransiska, Thank you for the question.
Are you still experiencing certain symptoms? Impact on the head can cause head injury. This external impact can potentially cause interference with brain function. In addition to the appearance of bruises and wounds, this impact can also cause bleeding, skull fractures, and concussion; depends on the impact mechanism and the impact strength. Based on the severity, head injuries can be divided into mild, moderate and severe head injuries. The symptoms experienced by each patient also depend on the severity of the head injury. If after experiencing the head injury, you are still conscious or lost consciousness for only a few moments, then you have a mild head injury. Usually other symptoms that you can experience are dizziness, headaches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, easy drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, blurred vision, ringing in the ears. In general, only those who have moderate and severe head injuries tend to have further complications so you don't need to worry about your current condition and its effects later. However, you should still monitor your symptoms for the next 24 hours. Please stay with your family for a while so that the family can also monitor the symptoms that may arise. If you experience vomiting, loss of body coordination, confusion, loss of consciousness, seizures, please immediately consult a nearby hospital for further examination and treatment. Meanwhile, you can still do activities but don't overdo it. You are encouraged to get more rest, especially the next 1-2 days.
I hope this helps.
