Friday morning, I was getting ready to take a shower. Due to my clumsy nature, I ran into the door frame on the left side (my left) of my head. It hurt for a few seconds, but afterward, I was fine and jumped into the shower. I didn't pass out, I wasn't dizzy, no nausea, etc. I've looked up symptoms of concussions quite a few times as I am a big worrier, and the only one I'm really experiencing is a headache, although it isn't severe. I have had the headache ever since Friday morning, though.
Since I worry so much, I was hoping I could get some opinions on whether it's possible I have a concussion or any other type of injury. It wasn't even that hard of a bump; I don't have a bruise, or a knot, either. But, my constant headache is just worrying me.
When you say you "RAN into the door frame", it sounds to me like you might have whacked yourself pretty hard, even if there are no outward signs. Your post is Sunday afternoon, that's two days later. Have you taken anything to relieve the headache? Worrying/Anxiety creates stress and plays tricks on the blood vessels,nerves in the brain, alone this can create and magnify your headache. I would take some headache relief medication and if it doesn't subside, go and see a doctor and be specific as to the time of the accident and your condition. Take caution and take care.
Try hot tub or bath and see if you get more relief. Be careful with Tylenol as it can wreak havoc on your stomach and digestive system. If it doesn't subside don't stay on a Tylenol diet, go see a doctor, OK.
