Question: hit on head
|tara - Fri Oct 29, 2004 11:03 am||
HI i was laying down and i pulled a letter from over my bed and a cell phone hit my head pretty hard. I have a headache on my left side and was wondering if this is normal. i have the bruise above my eyebrow so thats where i believe i got hit. If your tempal gets hit do u die automatically. thank you.

How long ago did this happen. If this has happened within the last day or so then it is normal to have a slight headache and soreness where the phone hit you. You would need to have a pretty hard hit for severe damage to be done. Did you pass out? What you described does not sound like it would cause too much damage. You do not automatically die if you get hit on the temple area. You would need to get hit pretty hard for it to cause you to die. However I was not there to see how hard you got hit so all I can suggest is that if the headache gets worse or you start feeling faint you should be seen by a doctor immediately.
