I went to the doctor the day after and they determined I didn't need an x-ray cos there's no fractures. I feel somewhat stoned since it happened. My neck had been stiff and recently it feels like I've been chewing on gum for so long that my jaw and temples ache. There's constantly this slight throbbing especially if I overwork myself like going out or doing chores. Should I be worried? I'm only given anti inflammatory gel and pain meds.
Excellent advice, Srr1111,
Don't be alone!
Even without a fracture you can have something wrong. The brain is like a bowl of jello. It can hit against the hard skull and cause bleeding which results in increased pressure. I'm surprised the ER did not mention it to you. Look at the written instructions and I bet you find head injury instructions there.
Go see your doctor ASAP!
Moon; Good answer but if by Monday your still having problems you should at least go back to the doctor and let them know all the symptoms you are having now that are not getting any better. You don't want to take any chances. And continue to have someone around you while you're doing things. Hope your feeling better by now. Chuck1957
