  • Did I damage my brain?

    I used to bang my head on the wall when I was stressed out. After I did it I would have a headache and I couldn't really think straight but that always went away. Now I'm having trouble remembering certain things and I don't feel sharp like I used to be. Did I do any permanent damage?

  • Is it true that someone who suffers from a concussion wouldn’t “know what hit them”?

    As in, they wouldn’t know that they are suffering from a traumatic brain injury? I’m really hoping that the answer to this question is a yes, since this would rule out any chance of me having one after accidentally hitting my head, since I wouldn’t be wondering about having one.

I’m really hoping that the answer to this question is a yes, since this would rule out any chance of me having one after accidentally hitting my head, since I wouldn’t be wondering about having one. These traumatic brain injuries are worse than Ebola and brain cancer combined, and there’s no way that I can suffer from a concussion!

  • Quickest least painfuo way to get rid of eye swollen from a fight?

    Quickest least painfuo way to get rid of eye swollen from a fight?

    Best answer: Two things-- First, use ice packs and the gel kind are best. Also, take aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce the inflammation.

    Actually, there is no miracle cure to prevent a shiner and those 2 remedies are essentially the pinnacle modern medicine can provide. Next time, remember to block with your left.

It hasnt gone away and im a bit worried as it hurts to walk and do exercise, which is very inconvenient for me. Do you think i should go to the doctors or just wait it out? thanks!!

    I fell while hiking a couple weeks ago. It was a big fall and I mostly caught myself with my right hand. That hand and wrist were bruised terribly but that pain went away within a few days. It was however replaced with pain around my collarbone on that side. It’s almost unbearable at times now after all this time. I can’t pick up my kid and I do most things with my left arm to avoid hurting that right collarbone area. I should probably go get it checked out & it’s likely I will tomorrow because here I lay at almost 1 am,awake only because of how much it’s hurting. But can you break your collarbone without it hurting immediately? It was completely fine that day. And there’s no lumps or bumps or bruises.

  • Is my boyfriend lying about his injuries?

    Best answer: I don’t know if he’s lying about his injuries. Only he knows that. It sounds like he got beat up pretty good. That happens a lot when you get drunk and run your mouth to the wrong person. Someone will knock some sense into you. Looks like he mouthed off to the wrong person. It will not be gone by Sunday.

    It will not be gone by Sunday. Don’t fool yourself into believing that. Take ibuprofen for inflammation, put ice on it, but he’s going to look tore up for about a week.

The base point of where it hurts is on the side of my thigh towards the top, but it also hurts in my calf, and especially my knee if I walk on it too long. I don’t remember pulling anything, so I don’t know if I pulled it in my sleep or something else. I haven’t gone to the Dr. yet because it started feeling bad on vacation and I just got back. Any home treatment recommendations would also be appreciated.
