I went to the doctor this morning to get checked out. Work offered, so I figured I should get looked at just in case. I have had a bit of a headache but what was really strange was how tired I was. I usually feel happy and energized in the mornings and ever since I banged my head I've just felt really tired and sluggish. So I got checked out and I have a mild concussion. I also had to get drug tested, obviously, being a worker's comp thing, but I don't care. The only drugs I ever take is OTC pain reliever and cold medicine. Big Woo. So I came home from work and I have a chiropractor's appointment later this afternoon. My neck and upper back has been really stiff and sore. Plus, I want to see if I need an adjustment or anything. MAN, I hit my head so freaking hard. I still can't believe it when I think about it. I have a follow-up appointment on Thursday, and I hope everything is better by then.

    PICKIE -- Oh my god! That is horrible! What happened to me was NOWHERE near as bad as that. Not even close. I just feel a little foggy/tired and I have a little headache. Plus, my head hurts where I hit it, obviously. So far that's about it. I have a little nausea, but it's being monitored. I was seen at the Urgent Care center today, and by my chiropractor, and I'm in excellent hands. I have a follow-up appointment on Thursday. My mom is a retired nurse so she's checking up on me, too. I can call her and run symptoms or whatever by her.

    What happened was I was in my classroom at the end of the day, straightening up. I was bent over on the floor straightening up some toys and when I stood up, I smashed my head on some upper cabinets. I didn't pass out or get dizzy or anything. It just jarred me and made my neck and upper back get really tense (a couple hours later). I got a big goose-egg on my head, but the swelling has gone down since yesterday. I came home from work today after my appointment and have already called in for tomorrow. I'm just going to take it easy and rest.

    Thanks for all the well-wishes, everyone. You guys sure know how to make a girl feel special :)

    I know EXACTLY how you feel!!!! really! A year ago I tripped over a flattened out cardboard box on the floor at work and fell on my face on concrete/tile floor. It embedded my glasses into my eye socket and the huge bump on my head actually made two co-worker sick and throwing up just looking at it, they said it covered my whole forehead and was about the size of a grapefruit! I was also unconscious for a couple minutes.

    I went to urgent care and could not remember names and dates, so they sent me to E.R at the hospital and I had a CT scan!! the pain is not to be described unless it has happened to you!!
    You take it easy and get x-rays... the chiropractor should automatically do this. You could have a crushed or herniated disc too.. BE VERY careful dear.. it can affect you for the rest of your life.. best of luck from one who has been there!!
