Hello,

This is the 3rd day that I have tenderness to my left side of my head near temple only when touched. On the 2nd day i have felt pressure to the frontal section of my head (just slightly) but to where i can notice that its not normal for me . Slightly dizzy after i bend over or turn quickly. I do feel weak, and have lost my appetite but i am still eating (making myself ). I just havent felt hungry and i think if i eat then i will be better. Im not really sure what could be wrong. Any ideas? I did bump my head the other day , not to hard, bumped on the towel hook in our bathroom but it really wasnt that bad....please give me any suggestions.

  • O.K., I'll jump in with the worst-case-scenario. Subdural hematoma. The temple is the thinnest area of the skull. Look up the symptoms and go to the ER if you get worse. Did you knock yourself out? Hopefully, all other suggestions will not be as drastic as this one is.
