Vomiting and head injury

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting and head injury


Avatar f tn When someone is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span> after receiving a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> that is normally a bad sign. You said he also had a nosebleed and it is possible that he was getting sick because of some blood going down the back of his throat. BUT take him to the emergency room and have a doctor look at him because his well being is nothing to take lightly.
Avatar f tn An X-ray normally is done to determine problems in the body cavity (pneumonia, cancer, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span>, etc.) Upper respiratory infections are viral, not bacterial, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> affect the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> throat area. I would recommend you call your vet and get a clearer understanding of exactly what his diagnosis is and the medication and feeding instructions for your cat.
Avatar n tn I have a pretty good knot on my head still and know I had a concussion (dizziness, fatigue, nausea/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> headache). Well.. today my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> still hurts, but I am noticing pain in my ear as well still. That began last night. Since I do not have insurance, I am wondering if I should be concerned and seek treatment. Please advise!
Avatar m tn I went to the doctor that night at an urgent care center <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> asked me a few questions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> palpated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> checked my eyes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ears for bleeding. He told me I have a contusion (bruise). I did not even get an x-ray. I am currently a student in massage and understand that head injuries whether they are minor or not should be treated as serious just to rule out anything. I didn't have typical symptoms like nausea or dizziness or blackouts. Just tenderness in the spots hit.

Avatar f tn You need to get this investigated immediately. Please go to the ER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> get a complete neurological examination along with MRI of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> neck region. Take care!
Avatar m tn I fell backwards <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> banged my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> to floor. There was no bleeding, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span> or nausea.Its been 20 days now and I still have heaviness and slight pain since then. I went thru CT scan it says "cerebellar foliae are prominent" otherwise report is ok... what does it mean?? Do I need to worry and consult the doctor again?
Avatar n tn Their was soap on the floor and I slip and felt on the floor hitting the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> their was no bleeding only bruce <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> big bump on the right side of my head.Suggestion should I go see a neurologist?
Avatar m tn Hi, Thank you for your question. After head injury or impact such kind of symptoms like headache & vomiting may be common, but may remain symptomatic or progress in future. I would recommend that he should consult immediately with a doctor for assessment. Please arrange an appointment with a neurologist who will evaluate the further prognosis here and can provide you an appropriate treatment. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn it may be that she's just got a nice big whang on her head that caused a headache and the pain is causing her to vomit (common with headaches) but there is no sense in taking a chance...<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span> after a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> can be very bad, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> because she's too young to explain what she's feeling you need to get her checked out ASAP at the ER...I really hope that you're there already, but even if you didn't take her in and she seems fine after all this time you need to call her pediatrician NOW.
Avatar n tn Son had a concussion 6 weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was cleared, hit his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> at wrestling practice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> threw up and had a headache that lasted 10 minutes. What do you recommend?
688980 tn?1229285580 They sent me back to work and it started getting worse, got dizzy, couldnt hear, nausea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> kept falling. Chief finally sent me back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> occupational health took me off work and sent me to see an ENT. The ENT comfirmed the hearing loss and sent me to vestibular rehab. Soon after I started rehab, everything got worse I dont know if it was from what they where doing or what.
Avatar f tn The symptoms that may be indicative of brain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> which should be watched out for are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span>, reeling of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span>, loss of balance while walking, vision problems, sleeping too much etc. It is important to consult a doctor after any head injury to be on the safe side. A slow bleeding subdural hematoma can present even 2-3 weeks after initial injury. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi, headache arising after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> is a well-recognized phenomenon. headaches triggered by trauma can include migraine, tension-type headache, or even cluster headache. There may be associated complaints of memory impairment and dizziness, as well as memory and concentration difficulties. Management of posttraumatic headache should be directed specifically towards the most clearly recognized headache pattern. You can be active for a while but not while having headache. Bye.
Avatar n tn My wife fell 5 days ago. She hit her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span>. She had a CT scan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> also XRays, but everything came back normal. But is it normal for her to still being dizzy after this many days.
Avatar m tn If any of these symptoms are noticed, please rush to ER. Persistent headache after any type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> should definitely be investigated. It can just be a tender spot on the scalp. A contusion and a cut on the forehead too can cause a lot of pain. Another possibility is that you have mild traumatic brain injury or chronic subdural hematoma. Since she has a previous history of head injury, it would be wise to consult a doctor ASAP or go to the ER. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn is it possible to somehow strain or injure the muscles of the esophagus while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span>? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if so, what are the manifestations, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> most importantly WHEN can I expect relief? I've been seeing an ENT, and we started with Nexium to alleviate any heartburn I may be having.It didn't really do much, so we did an esophogram. The esophogram ruled out reflux and ruled out hiatel hernia. Next up is a CT of the neck to rule out any mass.
Avatar f tn You can talk to your father calmly and explain he does not realize some of the stuff you've witnessed, that it's too big a danger that he hit his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span> might be from it, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he must trust you, and go. You can also say, "I wouldn't have called an ambulance unless I was sure, Dad." He is a grown man, so he has to be treated with respect, he must maintain his dignity through the process.
Avatar f tn A day ago, while playing with my younger brother, he slipped and hit his head on a door-frame, hard enough to cause a bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> swelling. We placed ice on the bump, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it went down, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>, of course, he complained of headaches. So, we gave him Children's Motrin. Now, he had been sick the day before, and he was recovering the day of the accident. But, both the same day and day after, I check his forehead and he seamed feverish.
Avatar f tn During that night I threw up, I then fell out of the bed and hit my head, above my left eye, I repeatidly hit my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> on the wall <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> also hit my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> in the bathroom. I then continued to be sick. The next day I could barely walk and everytime I turned my head it was a horrible sensation. around 5:20 I had some dry toast and a small class of Pepsi. 10 minites later I threw it up. Anything I had, such as water would come back which I assumed was the drinking.
Avatar f tn Hi! Soreness of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> could be due to muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> soft tissue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span>. I assume there is a typo error and your doctors did not seem to think you had a serious head injury. In case, it’s not a typo error, please go back to the doctor immediately. Otherwise, if you develop nausea, vomiting, excess sleep, severe headache, difficulty in walking and balance, tremors, seizures, vision problems, ringing in ears etc then consult a doctor immediately.
Avatar m tn last knight while at work, my girlfriend's mom stood up into a fire extinguisher and hit her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span>. she has been claiming to be very dizzy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> refuses to go get it checked out. she went to bed last night at around midnight and asked to be woken up at 4:00 a.m. to see if she felt any better. when woken up, she gave a short answer that she was "fine," but insisted on taking her temperature. she didn't seem warm.
Avatar n tn Yesterday, I was playing outside with my son <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he knocked my mouth with the back of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> started hurting instantly. Since then my whole head has been hurting and my ears are ringing and they feel plugged. I have never had any type of injury before and would just assume stay away from going to the doctors because I don't have insurance, nor do I have a physician. Is this normal after hitting your head or should I be a bit more concerned?
Avatar f tn may 24, 2012 i fell on the cement, hit my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was passed out for a few seconds. i have had every test from my neurologist, i still have stiff neck, numbness on the right side of my face with a serve pain going up from the right side of the neck to the base of my ear, then across the right temple of the head behind my eye to the base of the top of the ear. they did say i knock the crystals from my ear.

Avatar n tn Sounds like you have a subluxion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> in addition to a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span>. Nothing is typical of a siezure. But that is JUST A GUESS. The "calcification" term PRONABLE refers to a narrowing of a nerve passageway in the cervical area through calcium deposits.
Avatar f tn Hi! You should look out for signs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> nausea, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>vomiting</span>, excess sleep, severe headache, difficulty in walking and balance, tremors, seizures, vision problems, ringing in ears etc. Since you have some of them, please get this investigated immediately. On the other hand, the indent and swelling could be due to localized bleed inside the scalp. headaches, back and neck pain are also expected due to the impact. Upset stomach could be due to pain medications.
Avatar n tn Hi Most head injuries are closed injuries, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> may manifest no visible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span>. A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>head</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>injury</span> may not cause immediate symptoms. It can take several hours for symptoms to appear when there is enough swelling in the brain. Excessive salivation may present few days after a head injury. It may be due to damage to the nerves that control the salivary glands. A fractured or dislocated jaw, may lead to difficulty in talking and increased salivation.
