Overcoming A Bump On The Head Accompanied By Vomiting After An Accident?
I was 17 years old, but I fell off the motorcycle due to the shock of the car. I just fell and the head on the side of my ear was bumped. Now I am admitted to the hospital and my symptoms are dizziness and vomiting. “What can happen to my high school? What is the next treatment? Does it require more specific treatment?
Hello Devi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Post a head injury. especially if the impact is strong enough, if indeed you experience symptoms such as severe headaches, decreased consciousness, vomiting, blood or discharge from the ear / nose, amnesia, etc., then the doctor will usually recommend a CT scan of the head to see presence or absence of skull fractures and the presence or absence of bleeding inside the head. This examination is a very important examination to do, because if there is a large enough bleeding, then further action is needed in the form of surgery.
If there is no bleeding or bleeding occurs but is small, then usually no specific action will be taken, but will only be observed (see whether symptoms improve or worsening symptoms actually occur), as well as administration of symptomatic drugs (such as headache medications, nausea drugs, etc). Usually you will be recommended to be observed approximately 24 hours in the hospital, if symptoms improve or there are no other dangerous things found in the examination, then you will be allowed to go home and rest at home. After that you still have to make observations at home and come control to the doctor according to the schedule given.
To find out more clearly the best treatment for you, you should ask more clearly in advance with the doctor who conducts the examination on you.
