Headache After A Head Bang?
Good morning, my name is Mita, 23 years old. When I was in high school, I had an accident and my head hit the rock until I had to sew it. At that time I lost consciousness. 6 years of walking pain in the former impact that often occurs even sometimes swell in the stitches if it is too painful, accompanied by dizziness and nausea and body imbalance. Because of the accident I became forgetful, my emotions were unstable and unfocused. Changes in behavior. I have already consulted with my family doctor and are advised to do a CT scan, do I need to do a CT scan in this condition? Explanation please.
Thank you for the question.
When a person experiences trauma to the head, the structure inside the head including the brain will work to repair damaged tissue itself. This self-healing process can take place well, but in some parts of the brain, this process does not take place properly and leaves symptoms or complications that can last a long time, such as:
Headaches and migraines. Dizzy. Light sensitive. Often tired. Convulsions. Social-emotional disorders such as sleep disorders, difficulty concentrating, depression or anxiety, or changes in behavior. Therefore, you should visit a specialist neurosurgeon, so that the doctor will evaluate your complaint, conduct a physical examination, and conduct a supporting examination such as a CT scan to see any disturbances in your brain structure specifically, so that the doctor can handle according to the cause of the complaint You, including by providing rehabilitation, or treatment.
Hopefully this information can help.
