I recently slammed the top of my head against a concrete wall while trying to jump a gap at a gymnastics gym. I did not lose consciousness and immediately iced it. It has been two days since then, and I have not experienced any symptoms of a concussion or any other head injury. Only tenderness on the spot. Am I fine?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
1. If there have been no symptoms, then it is probably a mild injury without any internal brain injury.
2. In head injury, an observation period of 24 hours is essential, and if there is no progress of symptoms, then there is almost no probability of any serious problem.
3. If you get any symptoms like headache, dizziness, vomiting, visual problems, then it requires an evaluation and CT scan head. If there are no symptoms, then you are alright. Tenderness is almost always there due to superficial injury and will disappear in a week.
