Neck Pain Due To Blows.?
Good morning, yesterday afternoon I fought with my brother (bigger and bigger than me), I was hit on the top of the head suddenly + suddenly and I did not expect. I was beaten many times, causing dizziness to spin and pain in the neck, shoulders, arms, and back until now. I also felt my arms were weak, even to lift the dipper. My neck can be moved and looked but only limited, and even then it hurts so much. Is that reasonable or what action should I take to treat this? thanks.
Hello Amaraf, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
A blow to the head can cause an injury to the head. Head injuries can be divided into several categories depending on the severity of the head being a mild, moderate, and severe head injury. Generally, minor head injuries occur due to motor vehicle accidents, bumping into something, falling, or due to a hit on the head. Although most are harmless, if the head is hit hard enough it can cause rupture of blood vessels in the brain and disrupt the function of the brain.
The spinning dizziness that you feel can also be caused by a blow to the head or a blow to the ear region because the ear is a place of balance in the body. Other feelings of pain such as the neck, shoulders, arms can be caused due to injury to muscles, muscle aches, or muscle stiffness. Noteworthy is about the hands that feel weak, whether it cannot be moved due to pain or indeed because of the weakness of the limbs. If indeed the function of the strength of the hands is weak you can check with your doctor
You are also advised to be able to monitor whether there are any of the following danger signs such as convulsions, blurred vision, clear discharge from the nose or ears, impaired speech, loss of balance or difficulty walking normally, fainting, memory loss, weakness in the arms and legs, drowsiness excessive, bruising appears around the ears, headaches that get worse, or vomiting. If there is a danger sign it should consult with a doctor or neurologist because the doctor needs more complete information and also a physical examination directly to you. The doctor may also require tests such as x-rays, CT-Scan or MRI of the head to assess the structure inside the head.
Some things you can do between:
Monitor existing alarms
Get enough rest
Cold compresses on the injured or bruised part
If needed you can use over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol
Hopefully this information can help you.
