Bumped my head during surfing and felt sick afterwards?
well the weekend just gone, i went surfing (for the second time) with my boyfriend and his best mate. The waves i felt were quite powerful, and considering i'm only 5'1, they were also stood quite tall for me. One big wave knocked me off my feet and the surfboard hit me on the back of my head, it hurt for like half a minute or so but then it went, about an hour after that, one massive crashed on top of my head, and i was under the water for about 10 seconds, when i got to the surface i was shaking and rather terrified, so i started walking to the shore so i could get out for a bit, i was very wobbly whilst coming out and i was a bit dazed at the time.
My boyfriend rushed to me and was asking if i was okay, i was shaky but i didn't really feel that dizzy. When we were walking back up to the car i noticed that i was walking rather slow, and taking the wet suit off took a great deal of effort, i started to feel sick and real tired on the drive home. a few hours later i still felt rather sick but i had a slight achy feeling in two areas of my head, which obviously scared me because i didn't think i hit my head that hard.
The day after it still ached, but not as much as it did, but when me and my boyfriend had sex that night, i felt more dizzy then i usually do and my head started to ache again. I don't think it was concussion as i don't think the water hit me that hard, or i hit my head on anything else, at least i don't think so.. I am absalutley fine now, but i was just wondering if anyone has any information on this or any advice on what to do in case it happens again? as i am going surfing again in a couple of weeks, and i don't want to feel like that again!
