What should I do?

This answer was rated:

I feel of a horse 2 days ago, had concussion, couldn't breathe but I had a medic with me at the time so she took care of me. However, yesterday I felt very sick and dizzy but took some painkillers hoping it would go away unfortunately today I feel the same if not worse (my right lower side of back hurt, nausea, can't focus, my eyes really hurt I find it hard to keep them open plus I'm very weak).

Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Nausea weakness and eye pain are all symptoms of a more severe concussion. This is a closed head injury. It is concerning that you are getting worse and not better.

Dr. K. :

Theres always the possibility of a brain bleed or subdural hematoma.

Dr. K. :

This can occur with riding injuries even if you are wearing a helmet. You need to go back to the Dr or clinic for emergency treatment.
