Health Update in Katy / Symptoms of a Concussion

Health Update in Katy / Symptoms of a Concussion

 

I had several folks wanting to know what the outcome was of my doctors visit yesterday. I suffered a head injury on Wednesday and went to see our Doctor yesterday. I wrote blog posts about both.

 

My Doctor did a thorough job of examining me as he always does.I have a wound on the top of my head which is about one inch in length. Head wounds bleed a lot. The wound is not infected and is healing. My Doctor said if I had gone to a medical facility on Wednesday it would have taken about 2-3 staples to close it. We went through how I got hurt and how I felt afterwards. He was checking to see if I had suffered a concussion which I did not. He said I did not need a head scan. The bottom line is I am fine and thank all of you who made enquiries regarding my health due to this head injury. He completely understood why I did not go to an emergency room or one of these small emergency clinics.

 

Head injuries are serious business and we all have to pay close attention when we suffer some type of head trauma. Since I spent a substantial amount of time researching concussion symptoms I thought it would be a good idea to share with with all of you.

 

The various potential symptoms of a concussion can include some or all of these items:

 

  • Headache or significant feeling of head pressure

  • Amnesia about how the injury occurred.

  • Confusion or feeling like you are in a fog. Concentrating is very difficult

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Slurred speech or not being able to speak

  • Appearing to be dazed

  • Ringing in the ears

  • Passing out

  • Sudden fatigue

  • Delayed answers to questions including the easy ones

Some symptoms of a concussion can be immediate or delayed starting for hours or days after the injury. These symptoms include:

 

  • Difficulty concentrating and remembering things

  • Personality changes or irritability

  • Sensitivity to light and noise

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Depression or other psychological problems

  • Sense of taste and smell are not working very well

If you have one or more of these symptoms see you doctor within one to two after the injury. I am not a medical expert or concussion expert.
