Accidents can cause trauma to the head. trauma to the head can vary from mild to severe.
Coma is a condition where there is a decrease in consciousness where a person cannot even be awakened by pain stimuli. Coma that occurs after an accident can be caused due to several conditions such as bleeding in the head, fracture of the head, to neck spine injury. A coma after an accident usually indicates a serious illness, and usually a long coma.
If it is true that someone who is in a coma after regaining consciousness has a headache, then this is probably a symptom of illness or trauma to the head. Bleeding in the head can cause severe headaches, and pain may still occur even when the patient is conscious. Bleeding from the ear is a sign to watch out for, it can be caused by a skull fracture.
But of course this must be confirmed by direct physical examination by a doctor, and other additional examinations such as CT scans or X-rays are also required. Therefore it is recommended that these patients check again with the doctor as soon as possible, because the state of head trauma can change rapidly. because it could be that when the doctor examined the patient's condition, there was no abnormality, but it could worsen some time later.
Therefore, immediately consult a doctor directly.
