I hit the temple of my head with the corner of the car door very hard almost 2 weeks ago. The area is very tender to the touch and I have had a terrible headache since. Is this anything to be concerned about?
How are you? Headaches are a common observed effect of any trauma to the head. Over-the-counter pain medications may help provide relief. However if it persists and other symptoms arise ( such as vomiting, blurred vision, or lack of coordination), have this evaluated further for proper evaluation.
