Ok well, last night, I got kicked in the head pretty hard at a concert. Immediately after, I got dizzy for like, 5 or 10 seconds and then it went away. All last night and since I woke up this morning I haven't felt "right"...like its a very weak combination of dizziness and vertigo. I also think my balance is not 100% but more like 95%, like I said just weak symptoms. I've been keeping a watch on my pupils but there is no difference between them. Also I noticed as I was driving to work that when I take a deeper than usual breathe, the left side of my head hurts, about where I got kicked. But like the other symptoms, it is a weak pain.

Signs of a concussion? Or just the after effects of getting kicked in the head?

  • It can be very serious; you should see a doctor asap. I was kicked in the head years ago. The pain lasted a couple of years but I didn't have insurance--it was before hospitals being required to see you. The sooner you are seen, the better your outcome. If you got the name of the person who did it, make them pay for your bills.

  • I recovered eventually but you can have a serious blood clot or bleeding. It can be life threatening--along with a cracked skull, etc.

  • Well actually last night I ended up deciding and going to the ER to get checked out. Doctor took a CT scan and she said everything was fine. Of course now I am to be on the lookout of symptoms for possible internal bleeding and bruising but that's normal.So right now my dizziness is about 99% gone...i only get dizzy on rare occassions. Although I do have a slight headache but I mean, it hasn't gotten worse since the incident occurred but that could easily be because, well, I was kicked pretty hard, you know? Also my eyes hurt after looking at a screen for long periods of time, just like a normal person's should. What do you guys think?
