Hit my head and now...
So about 3 weeks ago I was putting some sheets away in my ottoman and when I went to stand straight up, I hit my head under the shelf on my living room wall. This shelf is very big and very sharp on the corners. So I hit the right side of the top to the back of my head. I literally had to drop everything in my hand and just sit down on the couch for a while. I had so much pressure in my head and in the back of my eyes.
That was 3 weeks ago and I noticed about a week or so ago my right eye twitches randomly. Not only does my right eye twitch but I've been getting severe pains and random headaches. The pains are on my right side and they are usually accompanied with the eye twitches. I also feel very nauseous and I lose my balance quite easily. I don't know if this has anything to do with me hitting my head but it's definitely something new for me. I'm very forgetful. People say things to me and I end up repeating them because I didn't hear them the first time. No, it's not my hearing. It's me not remembering anything people say. I do things and I honestly have no recollection of doing them. People have to tell me that I did it. I get migraines but I've had them since I was 12. They seem to be reoccurring a lot lately and sometimes they aren't full-blown migraines. Sometimes it's just my vision going off like I'll see bright flashing lights or black shadows and then my head will kill me. Nothing I take makes it better. Now I wake up with headaches. If I lay on my stomach my head feels like it's pulsating and my eyes feel weird.
I guess my question is, should I be worried? I mean, this may be a no-brainer question and some may be like "seriously? I think you should get checked", but I'm not one to run to the ER or the doctors over every little thing. I figured I'd come by here and see if anyone has any experience with this. I mean, I hit my head pretty hard but I wasn't knocked out. My Grand dad died from brain cancer so I guess I worry about that. What do you guys think I should do? Or is it normal to have this happen after hitting your head?
Thanks for reading!
