Often Forget, Daydream And Unfocused After A Hard Head Hit?
Hello,. I am Shintia Wulandari, 17 years old. I want to ask about my complaints lately. So, my head was once hit by a hard blow, and what I felt at that time was that the world suddenly felt spinning and dark for a moment. now I realize something is different from what I was before. I forget very easily, whereas before my memory was very good. I also often daydream. My eyes and mind often feel empty too. Before, I had never felt that my gaze and my mind were as blank as now. I am also very difficult to focus now. Whereas before I was very easy to focus, so it was easy to understand something. But now it feels really different. I get annoyed at myself often because I think my brain function has really declined. And it really interferes with my learning activities at school now. And one more thing, after being hit by that blow, my vision became blurry. Whereas before I did not have any eye disease. That’s all Explanation please. Thank you, HealthReplies.com! 🙏🙏🙏
The impact on the head should not be underestimated, because the head impact is strong enough to cause disruption of brain function and also other facial parts such as eyes, ears, and mouth. Head injuries can be accompanied by symptoms such as abrasions, swelling / bumps and bruises on the scalp and may be accompanied by wounds so that they bleed, to fractures or broken bones of the head / skull. In mild head injuries the patient may experience temporary brain function disorders such as dizziness, nausea, difficulty remembering the moment of impact, confusion. But for more severe head injuries these symptoms can last longer or can even cause death
So if you have an injury to the head, you should immediately go to the nearest health facility to determine whether the head injury you experienced could potentially cause a serious and dangerous condition that requires immediate medical treatment or not.
What happened to Shintia did happen after a hit / injury to the head, however, doctors still need to get other information related to Shintia's health condition. Namely through health checks and health interview sessions. Because even though a head injury can cause symptoms of impaired brain function, it does not rule out the possibility that complaints experienced by Shintia were experienced by other factors. Such as concentration difficulties caused by lack of sleep, the habit of doing work at once, feeling bored with the task or work / lesson, the habit of playing a gadget (gadget). Likewise with complaints of blurred vision, although head injuries can cause this, sudden blurry vision can also occur due to retinal detachment, optic neuritis for example.
So, Shintia, don't hesitate to see a doctor directly, yes, if there are suspicions that require further treatment, Shintia may be referred to a neurologist or ophthalmologist for further treatment.
