Posting for an adult family member who had accident at work yesterday. (Something metal and large hit him fast and with great pressure - fortunate head not taken off he says.) He got medical treatment the same day -emergency doc gave four stitches above the eyebrow. No scans - but perhaps no indications?? (To me it would be common sense, but I worry a lot.) he injured area is still swollen and sore ( icing helps ) and the pain is apparently much better than yesterday. He won't take pain killers. Sooo, he has none of warning symptoms that we can see - unless numbness of skull is a concern?
