Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

You need to see a doctor straight away, your symptoms are very similar to that of a brain injury - it could be a concussion, a fracture or some other kind of injury but you can't delay on these things and it has already been three weeks. Please see your doctor or go to the ER today and please keep us posted.

Best,

Susan
