bumped head
 
hi... this goes under the Liz is a klutz category... but about 5 minutes ago I leaned over (ironically enough to get a thermometer because I'm still having problems with my sinuses and feel like they're infected. Well when I was leaning down I banged my head really bad on the porceline sink. It hurts like all .... and there is a bump, but I remember everything that happened and I'm able to be online and stuff so I assume that it's nothing too much to worry about, right? I'm applying ice to it right now, and there is an 'egg' there... it hit about 2" above my temple near my forehead but it is covered by my hair. I am home alone tonight so that makes me a little nervous, but it should be okay. right?

Hi,
Things to watch for if you have a concussion, double vision, fluid draining from ears or nose, dizziness, vomiting, severe headache and also check your pupils to make such there dilating, If you unsure about your condition, call someone you know and have them call to check on you now and then.

P.S., I have whacked my head pretty bad quite a few times, I was okay, now my kids are a different story :eek:

Checking to see if you made it thru the night twizliz???? Hopefully eveything turned out okay. It's pretty hard to give yourself a concussion. I know because I am a MAJOR clutz and have wacked my head very, very, had on many, many, occasions!!! Sad, but true. I'm surprised I don't have serious brain damage it's happened so much. And out of all of that I have only had one concussion. Symptoms were, bad, bad headache, slurred and mixed up speech, lack of coordination ( could not get the cap back on my bottle of water at all!!!), and other stuff like that. Hope you turned out okay!!! :)
