I was doing yoga yesterday, during a pose in which my was alined with the ground I fell headfirst into the floor. I was about 2-4 feet off the ground. I didn't pass out, but I faintly remember being dizzy and light headed. After a few hours for the aleeve to kick in, and putting an icepack on the point of impact, I watched TV and felt much better. I fell at about 4:30ish. Today however my head still hurts, I can't rember the school notes I write down. even right after. I have to go one word at a time. I hit the left side of my head, closest to the middle. When I look to my right without turning my head, it really hurts. I also cant bend over at all, I get really light headed. I roll around at night so it's possible I might have slept on the point of impact. Please help me find out if I have a concussion. My parents have to go to work in a few hours and if I need to go to the hospital I need to know. (SYMTEMS: No vomiting, cant remember bright lights, or blackouts, I shy away from light but I'm still able to listen to music, my ADHD is really acting up, I can walk straight and ride a bike, I don't think I'm dizzy, my head hurts, and I can watch TV for 5 hours but It's only been about 20 minutes of looking at a computer screen and it bugs my eyes.)

Hello EThomA

Welcome to the EmpowHER community.

The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not show up immediately. Symptoms can last for days, weeks or even longer.

Common symptoms after a concussive traumatic brain injury are headache, loss of memory (amnesia) and confusion. The amnesia usually involves forgetting the event that caused the concussion.

Call and report this to your primary care physician who can determine if you should go to the emergency room, be seen in the office or continue to rest at home and report any changes.
