I hit my head three mounths ago with a metal bar and I have had headaches since that day. I went to the hospital but they said that it just was a hit. They didn't take a capscan test or something like that of my head. Sometimes I feel the same pain as the same day I hit my head (in the same part of my head). I would like to know it can be dangerous? thanks
sorry my English
There is a type of headache called "post-traumatic headache" which occurs after an injury to the head or brain. This far out from the injury, you may or may not need imaging of the brain with an MRI or CT depending on your clinical history, presence of other symptoms and neurological findings. If you are weak on one side of the body or have lost sensation, vision, etc... then it would be more urgent to have evaluation with an MRI or CT scan (also called a cat scan). A medication called elavil can be helpful in these types of headaches as well as migraine medications like imitrex. Talk to your doctor about setting up an appointment for a formal exam just to make sure everything is ok. THen, consider trying elavil if your doctor is ok with it. GOod luck.
