Ever had a concussion? I just experienced my first one this past weekend. I slipped and fell and slammed the back of my head against the vanity in the bathroom. My daughter insisted on taking me to a walk-in clinic but because I had blurred vision, was nauseous and had a headache they made me go the the emergency room. Later she told me I seemed confused right after it happened.
No swelling, bumps or lacerations, thank goodness. The attending physician decided to do a CT, also my first, and take an ex ray of my tail bone. I landed on it pretty hard. Just what I needed! I've been suffering with a bad back and chronic back pain for years. Do you suppose landing on my tail bone did it any good?
I stayed home from work a couple days. All I wanted to do was sleep. Plus I was sore all over, and my head just didn't feel right. I hate missing work when I haven't planned for it.
