• Should I get checked for a concussion?

    Best answer: First of all, when you did this, did you become light-headed or dizzy, or did people think you were acting strange afterward? I mean, apart from hysterically hitting your head.

    Best answer: First of all, when you did this, did you become light-headed or dizzy, or did people think you were acting strange afterward? I mean, apart from hysterically hitting your head. Did they think you were slow or spaced out? Did you feel slow or spaced out? Did you have nausea, ringing of the ears, or slurred speech? Did you insist you were fine in spite of these symptoms? Did you feel sleepy when you would not normally be sleepy? If none of this happened, there is no reason to think you had any concussion. Even if you did, sometimes just the pain will cause dizziness and light-headedness, without it being concussion. Of course you don't have to have ALL these symptoms for it to be concussion.
    Often, it is your family or close friends who are in the best position to know whether you are acting oddly after a head injury, which may be a sign of concussion.
    Anyhow, here you are the next day, not unconscious, so if it was a concussion, you are recovering nicely. Be sure to drink plenty of water. The dangerous period of 8 hours or so after a head injury has already passed. You are not going to die, and you are on the mend.
    Is the neck pain part of the pain from hitting your head? Probably. You might want to apply ice to where it hurts, for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time. If the neck pain persists for weeks, you might go to a Chiropractor, who can probably fix it up pretty fast.
    Still, there are other reasons for being dizzy and have light sensitivity. Use your judgment. Do you think you need to see a doctor? Even your extreme emotional response might have something to do with your health. Think it over and decide for yourself.

  • Back pain?

    I hydroplaned and crashed into a ditch (car is fine actually) and I didn’t get checked out by paramedics because I didn’t feel anything this was on 10/5/18. Now my back is super sore and the base of my neck. Any recommendations on what I should do?

  • Is chest pain a common side effect from throwing up?

    I threw up last night after a night of drinking. I threw up three times. Once around 9pm, again around 9:30, and then I woke up in the middle of the night around 2 and forced myself to throw up because I was nauseous and hoping it would help (it did).

Now it's the next day (nearly 24 hours later) and I'm feeling a strain-soreness in my right chest/ just below my shoulder. I feel it most when I breathe in deeply. Is this normal? Or could something be wrong?

  • Back pain at 21 years old?

    Is it "bad" to have back pain at 21? I work and go to school full time so I'm always on the go and I've had back pain chronically since. I'm not sure who I should be seeing for this? It's this constant tingling/ soreness in my lower back.

  • Any ideas about what my back pain is?

    Best answer: Poor posture is one of the most common causes of back pain. People with desk jobs are prone to this especially because their sedentary lifestyle does not allow for a lot of movement in eight hours or more. Weightlifting is also a common cause.

    Best answer: Poor posture is one of the most common causes of back pain. People with desk jobs are prone to this especially because their sedentary lifestyle does not allow for a lot of movement in eight hours or more. Weightlifting is also a common cause. For people whose work involves carrying heavy objects or people, straining their back is part of the job description.

    While pain relievers are quick remedies, one sustainable solution is good posture and posture support tools like chairs. Don’t settle for a band-aid fix. Prevent back pain for the long term

However, yesterday and so far today I ve had absolutely no pain. It s just suddenly gone. Should I still bring it up to a doctor or let it be? Thank you!

  • Every time I take my fish oil pill, I have heartburn. Should I stop taking it?

    Best answer: You can take an antacid to offset the heartburn. It's fairly common to get the burn with fish oil supplements, if you have a history of heartburn already.

    Or, you can try to take the pill before eating your lunch/supper.

    I am the biggest hypochondriac ever. I have had a fever for a couple days now and I know a stiff neck is a main sign of Menigitis. I cannot tell if I do have a stiff neck or if I am freaking myself out. I can move my neck side to side and up and down no problem. I do not have a rash or have not vomited and just have a bit of a headache. I guess if i turn my neck i feel just the tiniest pain but nothing bad. I went to six flags to ride roller coasters 4 days earlier and worked out for the first time in a couple weeks. Maybe this is why? What do you think?!
