I got into what could have been a horrible accident but no one was hurt luckily. Except myself.
We went into the ditch and ended up hitting an approach rolling our truck across the road and hitting another approach and ending up in a field.

I hit my head pretty ******n the back window and was unconscious. When I finally came to I had a sick disgusting lump on the back/top of my head.
We were not able to go to a hospital so I slept it off and didn't go to the hospital today.

I am scared that I may have seriously hurt myself. I feel nauseous all the time now and my vision is blurry/spotty and I am very very shaky and my balance is off and I blacked out today and can't remember most of the night before and this morning.

When I feel the back of my head with my hand it feels flat at one part and then indented and then that bump is still there. Please any help is needed.

I don't know what to do.

:(:(

I don't know what to do. :(:( U need to go to hospital & get checked out TODAY ! Taking such a blow to ur head causes trauma to ur brain, it gets jolted about & crashes into ur scull, this causes bruising & swelling of the brain...........this can be very dangerous, causing brain damage or death ! Do Not Sleep It Off .........sleeping & nausea are signs of concussion ! U are playing with ur life....................again i say "GO TO EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT TODAY" do not delay ! No-One can help u with this other than emergency department ! Good Luck......plz let me know how u get on ! :)Dont be sacred, with treatment they can reduce swelling but the longer u leave it the wosre it will get !U need tests done and with a bit of luck all they will do is observe u to make sure things dont get worse ! plz plz plz dont delay any more !

  • Thank you! I did end up going to Emergency and I had a concussion. My brain was swollen which is what caused me to black out. I was told to rest and take Tylenol for the pain.

  • Thank you! I did end up going to Emergency and I had a concussion. My brain was swollen which is what caused me to black out. I was told to rest and take Tylenol for the pain. Good im glad u went, im sure they told u what to do & what to watch out for, if u have any problem at all go back to them. I hope they took xrays ? I also hope that u have someone at home with u incase u need attention & for them to watch out for any changes that u urself may be unaware of ? Concussion can be a serious injury so look after urself ! Good luck & i hope u recover soon ! :)
