My friend fell very badly and her head hit the wall with force. She didn't black out but had normal signs of concussion and whiplash. She didn't seek medical help at the time as she was worried she would be letting family down by not being able to go on holiday. Her symptoms didn't worsen, apart from bruising over her body, and gradually most went.
Now 3 weeks later she has begun suffering hard to bear headache with sickness and blurred vision and feeling generally disorientated. Her head felt that it would explode and was burning. She became a little better and has been able to walk about today and yesterday but has looked obviously unwell. She spoke to her doctor on the phone and he said that after 3 weeks it couldn't be anything to do with her bang on the head and was more likely migraine. We hadn't discounted migraine completely although she has never suffered one previously. The doctor didn't feel it necessary to see her. Her symptoms are worsening again as I write this.
After feeling much better 13 days after her fall is it possible that her symptoms are post concussion and should she ask for a scan. Or just sit tight and hope for the best?
Many thanks, June Mae
