    Exclamation --PLEASE HELP-- Severe headache weeks after hitting head -- PLEASE HELP! --

    So, on March 17th of this year I hit my head off a solid wooden table. I believe I had a concussion, but was unable to go to a doctor due to being too busy with school. I had bruising covering my eyes around my nose as if i had broken my nose. Before the bruising I had major swelling on my forehead where I hit my head.

    It is now april 21 -- I had headaches for only a few days after hitting my head. This morning however I awoke with a piercing migraine. I do not get headaches like these often. They usually happen because I am dehydrated or muscle tension in my neck but drinking water, nor rubbing my neck has helped with this headache. The headache is stemming from the back of my head not the front where I hit it. I am wondering if there is any correlation between my headache and hitting my head a few weeks ago. I am afraid after years of sports and hitting my head during them I have hurt myself to a place I cannot go back.

    Please note, I have never bled out of my ears from a concussion. I have had major bruising however on my face. If you need any more information to help me please let me know!

    you need to see a doctor
    hitting your head is a very serious injury which i am not qualified to diagnose

    Please see a Dr. as soon as you can. Do you happen to be extra tired as well? My husband had his and he did not pass out, his eyes looked fine and nothing out of his ears or anything. He went back in later after they initially did nothing since he did not have the "typical symptoms" and he had a small bleed at the back of his neck (he hit the front!! with no swelling or bruising either.) Even if you see no problem on MRI's & CT's - which cleared up - he had damage on the cellular level that did not show up. You need a neuro-psychologist to see then if you are still having trouble.
