I am looking form some advice following a fall where i hit the side of my head last Thursday. It did bleed but thankfully stopped overnight.
I didn't lose consciousness or was sick at any point but saw my gp the following morning. She said it was a minor scrap and all vitals looked good.
The following day out of the blue i started feeling really weird. Nausea, dizziness and I think I became quite anxious. I could not go to sleep that night until 3am, every time I closed my eyes I though I might forget to breath and not wake up in the morning. I started experiencing ringing in my ears / tingling in fingers. I started researching my symptoms and based on what the doctor said I thought I might be having a panic attack.
The next day I felt pretty much the same and called a helpline, who sent an ambulance to examine me, just in case. When the evening they still haven't arrived I had another assessment done over the phone and again was told its unlikely I had a serious injury but should go back to my gp or the nearest A&E.
I had a good night sleep that night and felt reasonably good the next day.
I went back to my gp yesterday and again all vitals seemed fine. We did come to the conclusion that I probably did have a panic attac, especially considering my cousin died of a head injury - I don't think I thought of this until I actually said it out loud. Perhaps subconsciously I got scared and this was the reason for my feeling so bad suddenly.
But just now I started feeling dizzy and uneasy again, my ears are still ringing and the side of me head where I hit it still feels tight, almost like a slight pressure.
I have doen some research and it might as well be normal to be feeling all this, but i am still concerend. I was told nothing about the recovery process or how long I might be feeling unwell and didn't get much reassurance. I readh people might not experience any symptoms until a few days after their injury and that it can take a while to get back to normal. And the fact I have typed all this probably shows my brain is functioning ok. But then what am I feeling?
Am I just being to paranoid?
