Resolved Question:

after a fight on Monday night, and have been slapped on the face hard repeatedly, I feel short dizziness when I move my head fast or in certain movements,
I didn't check with doctor, as I read about concussion, and I don't have any of its symptoms, except that short dizziness

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

this is not right that you have been slapped hard on your face repeatedly.

Dr. David :

you could have fractured an orbital ridge bone or cheek bone

Dr. David :

and you could have had a concussion or brain injury or even a small subdural brain bleed in the brain.

Dr. David :

you do need to see a doctor or go to the A&E at a local hospital to be evaluated and get a brain CT scan to check for concussion and brain bleed and orbital bone fractures.

Dr. David :

this sort of domestic violence is not right and also needs to be reported to the police as well.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have questions.

Customer:

my head has no injuries, and I have no headacks at all, and I don't have any other sympemts except that dezziness

Customer:

my head has no injuries, and I have no headache all, and I don't have any other symptoms except that dizziness


I know it's violence , but not planning to report to the police, as I think it's not major thing! but I'm asking you


will that improve with time and what I should do to control the situation


Dr. David :

most likely it will improve with time

Dr. David :

drink plenty of fluids and use tylenol or paracetamol to help with the pain.

Dr. David :

and it should get better

Dr. David :

you should also ice your cheek as well to decrease swelling and pain.

Dr. David :

if the dizziness gets worse, definitely see a doctor.

Dr. David :

there are also over the counter medications for dizziness such as antivert and dramamine and meclizine which could help.

Dr. David :

does this information help?

Dr. David :

do you have any other questions?

Customer:

alright, I will take it easy for a week or so, hoping to get better

Customer:

and that medication probably I will not take because I don't feel dizzy all the time , but thanks I wrote them down

Dr. David :

you are welcome

Dr. David :

I hope you get better

Dr. David :
