| | Hit my head, now I'm VERY DIZZY!!!
One month ago I was getting ready to go to bed, I turned off the lights and then misjudged where the pillow was and slammed my head onto the wooden arm rest of my futon bed. The impact was so strong that I I could feel it on the other side of my head. It was very late, and I was very tired so I just thought "screw it, I'm just going to go to sleep and not worry about it."
The following day (I think it was the next day, but it could have been a few days later), I suddenly became dizzy. I have had dizzy spells before and just brushed it off.
A few days later I went to my rental office to pick up the new key to my building and I couldn't remember what # my apartment was! I have lived here 3 years and I was completely blank. I found this to be very unusual, but I didn't associate it to me hitting my head.
Then I had slight dizziness almost every day for the first week. I also had headaches too.
The 2nd week my next door neighbour refinished their wooden floor with an oil based varnish and was so toxic that it made my head spin! (Or at least I thought it was the varnish, it still could have been the hit to my head).
Then week 3 I only had mild dizziness, but I wasn't too bothered with it. Week 4 the dizziness became more intense and I finially went to the doctor. The doctor wasn't that worried. She is going to send me to a neurologist, but I can't get an appointment for 3 weeks. I'm worried that my brain could be swollen or bleeding inside. I'm really worried. This dizziness and nausea is quite severe and came on so suddenly. I am pretty convinced that it has to do with the head injury. What do you think?
