Question: Headache from hit on head
|michaelb123 - Sat Mar 01, 2008 7:23 pm||
I was lightly hit directly in the temple playing basketball. That area is tender and I have a headache localized in the spot I was hit. I have no concussion like symptoms (nausea, blurred vision), but my jaw is a bit sore. Again, it was a light blow, but I am a little worried. should I be?

While head injuries should always be watched, it sounds like this is not something to worry about so unless you get other symptoms you can probably just allow it to heal itself. Vomiting, dizziness, nausea, slurred speech, etc. could signify a concussion and should be checked.
