    Question fell on my butt, slammed head off ground

    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

    ouch! I think I'd go back to the doctor and insist on more tests!
    Sorry you're going thru this!

    I don't want to scare you, but remember that actress a few years back that hit her head skiing and a few days later she died because of a blood clot in the head after she thought she was ok? Make an appointment after work, on saturday or on your lunch hour......don't take chances with your health please!

    Re: fell on my butt, slammed head off ground

    Hello.
    got into the doctor this afternoon...he did another exam & said everything appeared ok but if it would make me and my family feel better,,they would schedule a ct scan..its tomorrow after my 1st day of work.

    my mom was worried cause her mom & her uncle both died shortly after falling and hitting their heads,,i had forgotten to tell the doc that (prob doesnt matter) and he seemed to b in a hurry to notate it.

    the nurse commented on my pulse rate..asked if it was always so low..told him that i always have a low blood pressure (110/80) but nobody's ever mentioned my pulse.. it was 52..i forgot to mention it to the doc.

    thanks so much for your help ! :0)
