Is A Head Bang That Hurts For Days Dangerous?
Hello, I’m 25 years old. A few days ago the head hit the iron bar very hard. There were no bumps after the collision. The day after that until now the part that hit was painful to the point of disturbing the activity. Please reply, Thanks.
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
You have a head injury. Head injuries that occur can be mild, moderate to severe. Head injuries that occur without immediate loss of consciousness tend to be minor head injuries that don't need to worry. However, still have to undergo monitoring, especially within 24 hours after injury. Head injuries can also continue gradually until weeks after the injury.
For this reason, if there is a decrease in consciousness, convulsions, fainting, increasingly severe headaches, dizzy vision, vomiting, impaired balance, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, difficulty speaking, or daze, consult a neurologist immediately. The doctor will conduct a medical question and answer, a thorough physical examination and supporting examinations (such as X-rays, CT-scan or MRI) if needed. Handling will be adjusted to the injury that occurred.
In general, minor head injuries are generally caused by commotion in the brain. Where no abnormalities in the anatomical structure of the brain are found. If there are complaints after injury, complaints that appear are minimal. Complaints can be overcome by resting. For that, you rest. Avoid activities like watching, listening to music or playing games. Because these activities require you to think.
Thus hopefully useful.
