Concussion and bleeding

Common Questions and Answers about Concussion and bleeding


Avatar m tn You should have gone to an emergency room and you most likely wouldn't have any of the problems you are having now. There is a window of opportunity to reduce swelling and stop bleeding (if that is taking place) and you missed it. Have you had an MRI? Light sensitivity often (not always) indicates bleeding in the brain, which is in addition to the concussion. More bad news. You will probably have problems from neck pain about another six months down the line.
1770029 tn?1325805955 I am worried about having a concussion or some type of brain bleeding. Should i go to the doctor? I understand people think I should have went to the doctor immediately but I know people who have had concussions and they are fine.
703821 tn?1231725695 My doctor,nurses,therapists, & specialists all say I have a concussion from a 13 1/2 ft fall. There was no evidence of concussion on MRA & CAT SCAN. Memory loss occurred as well as all the symptoms but shouldn't the tests have shown it?
Avatar f tn About 3 days ago The trunk of an acquaintances car slammed down on my head and gashed it pretty good. I know I needed stitches but I didnt go to the doctor. It bled alot at first then slowed down and stopped completely around 8 hours later. it seems to be healing but is still slightly an openish soar. I had a headache of course for the past three days which has reduced to a dull ache. There is a loss of feeling around the area, accept the gash which is more sore.
Avatar f tn and was hit in the head from other team mates going for the ball,he was suppossably knocked out for at least 5 min or more,and when he came too no one was around and he didnt even know what had happen to him,he just remebers gettting up from off the ground,when my father went to pick him up from school he told me that my son was looking sorta gazed at him complaining that his head hurts bad and that he couldnt see good,now at the school function there was no adults around at no part of the prac
Avatar f tn G'day. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right area-don't know where else to put it. I've had a concussion for about 9 days now with "usual, mild-average" symptoms. The last couple days have been like the first couple days, cannot rest my head at night from the pain, taking two 650 mg Tylenols when I think of it, also seem more confused & forgetful (before major loss of sleep). The last 48 hrs. I've slept for 40 min's.
Avatar n tn Not all brain injuries show up on CT scans. If your son has demonstrable symptoms, I would seek evaluation and treatment from specialists such as neuropsychologist, speech & language, and occupational therapy. Most states also provide services within the public school system.
Avatar n tn My 14 yr old son had concussion in sept 07 w/ headache & visual, memory, thinking ability disturbance for a few hours after the injury. A CT scan revealed no bleeding. He has continued w/ fatigue and headache w/ feeling of pressure behind eyes. In Dec a follow-up CT essentially normal, tho mentions ventricles are enlarged but w/in the midline.
Avatar n tn Nonspecific white matter lesion. No bleeding. I don't smoke, normal weight and blood pressure, no diabetes, exercise regularly, have eaten a low-fat diet for years. I am 70, female, and have had five concussions in my active life, the last one 20 years ago. Could these be responsible for the findings since no cardiovascular disease seems present and tests for peripheral blood vessel problems in my legs are normal? If it is a result of concussions, is this condition likely to progress?
8506420 tn?1398436180 Kitten did not respond or show any pain when we felt the different portions of her head and body. There was no increase in heart rate and breathing. There is no bleeding from the nose, but there seemed to be anal discharge due to a foul smell, but no liquid is excreting. Movement is 100% when treats are shown to her, she is able to run around and jump as per normal without any disorientation.
Avatar n tn 00 pm he yelped in discomfort i pick him up and he was really stiff but alive then i placed him in my chest and felt his hearbeat stop he passed away in my arms! my question is did i hurt him some way do dogs really survive these injuries? should i have left him at the vet? did one of those drugs cause a seizure and killed him ? i just feel so guity and i need to know if the vet could have saved him.... sorry just extremley sad!
Avatar f tn How long after a concussion is it normal to still be feeling nauseous and have difficulty with memory, balance etc. I got hit in the face with a softball 14 days ago and am still nauseous. Cannot stand on one leg with eyes closed, and have forgotten things like PIN numbers, passwords etc. I went back to GP who sent me to A&E for checking out, but they said just concussion, no evidence of bleeding. I've developed a stiff neck too.
780665 tn?1239030149 The answer is yes. A head blow can cause both slow internal bleeding and swelling compressing the pituitary, which controls hormones, which control mood. to treat these problems, and a week has already gone by. If you have not had an MRI (Not a CAT) get one immediately. The outlook is problematic. In some cases the problem goes away and in others it does not. But I would get an MRI, even if you had one a week ago. Headaches are common after a concussion, by the way.
Avatar n tn He also gave him some anti-inflammatory medication as well as some pain medication then sent us home. I watched our puppy all through the night and he just laid there. He wouldn't eat and was pretty unresponsive. When he does stand up, he just walks in circles. I took him back into the vet this morning and they tube fed him and watched him all day. They called at 5:30 pm and said he had been having seizures and if I wanted to put him to sleep. I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn Hello Almost 2 weeks ago I suffered concussion from falling on ice and hitting my head. I immediately had a neurological exam and a cat scan and they said it was normal. I have had increased headaches and nausea so I had another Cat scan on wednesday night. I was told not to exercise until I am feeling better but I am getting antsy. I was told not to work out because getting my blood pressure higher can lead to bleeding in the brain. when can i work out? Can i begin with an easier work out?
Avatar f tn Although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. Usually, such symptoms and dizziness may result due to post-concussion syndrome and may last for weeks or months after the injury that caused from the injury of a fall, vehicle accident, or sports injury. In addition, one may experience either migraine type or tension type headache.
Avatar f tn All the problems that go with a concussion. Anyways I have been to 3 neurologists and the last one finally said post concussion, I finally had my 3 year headache diagnosed as a chronic paroxysmal hemicrania and am on meds for it. Now I have sleep problems, I sleep to much. At least 4 naps a day, uncontrollable need for sleep. I went to a sleep study and have not heard the results yet. My question is, could this really be post concussion syndrome? does it last 3 years?
Avatar m tn My Neurologist said that I have Post Concussion Syndrome. What's the difference between concussion and PCS and when will it go away? I can't even drive, or work and to even go to a store, I'm afraid to go without someone with me. I have walked into walls and doors and to go down steps is hard for me.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your helpful insight. I read the Vienna Guidelines and also thought his concussion was a grade 3 but I'm not a neurosurgeon so I was guessing there was something else the doctors were going off of. I am keeping an eye on him for any changes as you listed. After I posted my first comment I saw a big change in him. He got out of bed & started interacting & is sleeping less. Again, thank you for replying so quickly & for your insight.
1287446 tn?1313951238 I was attacked in a parking lot from behind about 5 hours ago, and sustained a concussion from the incident. I have no lasting effects to my knowledge from the incident, other than obvious sensitivity to that area of my head in which it occurred. Sometimes the scar appears a bit sore as well. An MRI done in April of this year (it was just a routine follow up) showed brain scarring. My neurologist asked me if I ever had any major head injuries, and I explained to him what happened.
Avatar f tn Balance with my eyes closed is still poor, but they are comfortable it is just concussion/shock and not bleeding. I will try to take it easy for sure. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn I took some aspirin and now I only feel a small throbbing where I hit it, and it kinda feels warm like it's bleeding but it's not. I'm 16 and not taking any meds besides birth control and anti anxiety meds. Do I have a concussion?
Avatar f tn After my last concussion I had extremely bad vertigo, memory loss, and headaches. They got so bad I had to get a Cat Scan because they thought my brain might be bleeding, thank god it was negative. Well I recently got in a car accident and have no clue if I did hit my head or not. I went to the ER and I was cleared in a few hours.
1433614 tn?1283452059 My question is, is can my eye pain (that feels like something is between the outside edge between my eyeball and the eye socket deeper inside) really be associated with the Concussion? and what are the Possible issues at hand? What could be wrong? Thank you again for your information and insight i greatly appreciate it would just like an idea of what could be wrong.
Avatar n tn My 17 yr old son got a concussion by hitting his head on the floor in a baskerball game on 1-16-09. He was not knocked out but very dazed. An MRI and CT found no bleeding or damage, but from the very moment it happened both hands, feet and face cheeks have been numb and he lost strenght in his hands. He has been doing physical thearpy about 4 weeks and is slowly gaining his strength back but still has all of the numbness. He had another MRI on 3-24-09 and the Dr.
Avatar n tn I am still experiencing head pain, ears ringing, some occasional jaw pain, trouble sleeping and days when I just don't feel well.. ...going on one month now. Also forgot to mention my left nostril seems either dry,burn & sometimes at night plugged for a bit. I have not been able to lay on my left side because of head pain/pressure. I had previously had a Ct scan a couple of weeks ago that showed no bleeding or abnormality.
Avatar f tn Your injuries were very severe if they left you with a bruised and bleeding brain. Brain injuries like the one you suffered may take up to a year (or longer) to recover from. Just because you feel better doesn't mean that your brain has fully recovered.
4730064 tn?1358466200 I got a concussion 3 months ago and i had dizzy spells all the time for 6 weeks or so. The room would look as if it was spinning whenever I looked up,down or to the sides or when i would lay down or get up. Then it went away and now for the past week whenever I turn my head to the left I get a bad dizzy spell like the room is spinning. I also feel slightly off ballance when i walk not all the time but sometimes this happens. Could this be because of the concussion.
Avatar m tn He does not have any damaged teeth, bruising or bumps. The animal hospital checked his ears and did not notice any I over reacting? I am very worried about little Oliver.
Avatar n tn I lost conciousness, have no memory of being hit, and was disoriented and in and out all the way to the emergency room. I ended up with 41 stitches in my head and after a ct scan, was sent home about 5 hrs later. It has now been 8 days. I have extreme fatigue, headaches, numb spots that come and go in my face and head, nausea, and my eye hurts (I developed a black eye about two days later).
