Hi I'm new here. II fractured my skull in a fall at the beginning of December. I fell on to tiled flooring and cut the back of my head open. Do'nt remember much until paramedics arrived. Had CT andMRI scans and fracture with contusion was diagnosed. Although I feel much better I'm still not right! Smell and taste are very poor, still getting dizzy spells, pain at back of head when bending an site of wound is still very sore. Concentration is poor, I have ringing in my ears and am always tired. I am signed off on the sick til 16th Feb. I was wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and how long these symptoms last? I am a teacher and at the moment facing 30 children daily and the associated work load seems daunting.
