    Question slipped & slammed head on frozen yard

    Hello,
    Pulled a real good one on Jan. 22..running late for work, took a short cut through the snow covered yard-slight 1.5 ft incline onto sidewalk. Slid down incline..both feet went out from under me ..went down on my butt and my head slammed back and hit the frozen yard..did not pass out.

    Had a good headache/pressure feeling for about 3 days constant and nausea 2 afterrnoons in a row..headaches subsiding now, but several times a day have sharp pains in upper left part of head..worse when i'm laying down.. In the last week 2or 3 instances of vertigo..mainly when laying down.

    Just finished a 10 day supply of amoxicillan for a sinus infection..might explain the vertigo..have had benign positional vertigo before.

    Went to GP on the 24th..no concussion..advised tylenol.

    Not sure whether to schedule another appt....the pains in my head are pretty bad (about 3x a day)

    Any thoughts?

    thanks
    Jennifer
