Hello! I've fainted Sat morning and hit my head hard on the floor. I spend all day yesterday hardly moving. Had a massive headache, neck ache and pain in my spine. I'm still feeling quite bad today. I'm not sure what to do. Can it be serious??
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: Daily. All day, although it hurts less when I sit still. I'm a bit dizzy but not much. I don't need to vomit.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I'm on Sertraline. I don't know if that's important.

Do you think I should call 111? I don't know if it's serious enough

Thanks for the details

These symptoms can be the symptoms due to impact of trauma

You should take Paracetamol and see how it goes in next 24 hours

If the symptoms stays the same and does not improve then you must go to the doctor to assess you for a CT scan

Please do let me know if you have any other question
