Vomiting symptoms head injury

Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting symptoms head injury


Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Any head injury should be examined. If you hit your head hard—naturally it will pain for days. But it should not cause earache. If are having 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 f tn The symptoms that may be indicative of brain injury and which should be watched out for are vomiting, reeling of head, 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 m tn The first 24 hours after the head trauma is usually the critical time. If there were no symptoms observed such as loss of consciousness, blurring of vision or vomiting, then the chances of serious head trauma decreases. Pain medications as well as ice pack usually help provide relief for cases of mild head trauma. Take care and do keep us posted.
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 m tn I fell backwards and banged my head to floor. There was no bleeding, vomiting 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 Nauseau, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, possible vomiting, this could be apart of what is called VERTIGO. My first recommendation is consider seeing a neurologist. There are therapist out there called vestibular therapist. They specialize in vertigo. Your wife could still have a brain injury. Go ask her the following questions: Cognitive: Is she having difficulty with: Short term memory or long term memory.
Avatar n tn Hi, Headache arising after head injury 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 m tn If any of these symptoms are noticed, please rush to ER. Persistent headache after any type of head injury 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 f tn Hi! You should look out for signs of head injury nausea, vomiting, 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 f tn Can you give any opinion on how hard I need to fight him to be seen by the doctor? If he had a head injury related to his fall, would the vomiting have appeared before 48 hours? Would he have other symptoms?
Avatar n tn The injury may be only a minor bump on the skull or a serious brain injury. Head injury can be either closed or open. Learning to recognize a serious head injury and give basic first aid can save someone's life.
Avatar f tn A bump can form in the scalp—a contusion which will heal with time. Does he have any other symptoms like vomiting, nausea, vision problems, balance problems, gait problems? However one cannot ignore any head injury. Hence get him examined by his pediatrician once. It could be his gut flu. However do not ignore the symptoms. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn The headache usually occurs for some time after a concussion along with other symptoms ( confusion, nausea or vomiting, blurred vision, loss of short-term memory or perseverating). Complete neurological and physical examination and some tests will help determine the underlying cause. Even with no insurance, there are hospitals that help. Just inquire at your local government office for this. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you have a subluxion injury in addition to a head injury. 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 n tn Hi Most head injuries are closed injuries, and may manifest no visible injury. A head injury 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.
Avatar n tn i googled yellow liquid + nose and was a little frightened to see spinal/brain fluid haha, but that seemed a little overly dramatic, especially since this last injury was mild compared to the others (aka no vomiting or loss of consciousness or anything major like that). i was just surprised because i've never had nasal discharge after this type of injury. i'll keep an eye on it and report back :) thanks again for your response i feel relieved.
Avatar f tn As far as my experience goes, a hit with a base ball bat should cause some short term problems like concussion and post concussion symptoms. But if there was no unconsciousness, nausea or vomiting, a serious brain damage is ruled out. Do you wish to add any more symptoms of yours ?
688980 tn?1229285580 I also have a tearing sensation behind my right eye. Could all these from my head injury? I never had this problem before, it seems to be getting worse. But all tests show nothing, is this normal to have so long after the injury? My injury occurred about 7 months ago?
Avatar n tn Now after some time has passed since injury you need to look out for symptoms like balancing problems, fainting attacks or vomiting or memory loss in your daughter. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Well, symptom wise it does sound like concussion. A concussion can last for weeks after the head injury. The symptoms too vary from person to person. Headache, confusion, memory loss, dizziness, nausea vomiting, slurred speech and fatigue are common. Delayed symptoms include depression, irritability, sleep disturbances, seizures, loss of smell etc. A doctor generally looks for focal neurological or generalized neurological symptoms that would show there is a pressure on brain somewhere.
Avatar n tn Are there other symptoms present? Headache is a common result of head injury and it might persist for a few days to weeks following even mild head trauma. Try to put ice pack and take pain medications to help with the symptoms. However, you could also benefit from further evaluation by your doctor if it increases in severity or additional symptoms appear like vomiting, drowsiness, and even loss of consciousness. Take care and do keep us posted.
