MY HUSBAND AND I WERE PUTTING IN A NEW PASTURE FOR OUR CATTLE AND IN THE
PROCESS I WAS HOLDING A METAL POST AND HE WAS POUNDING IT WITH A POST POUNDER THAT WAS HAND HELD. WELL I HAD MY HEAD IN THE WRONG PLACE AND WHEN
HE CAME DOWN WITH FULL FORCE OF A 270LB. MAN AND ABOUT 40LBS OF POUNDER HE
HIT MY HEAD WITH THE HANDLE. I WASN'T KNOCKED OUT,BUT IT KNOCKED ME DOWN ON
THE GROUND. I DIDN'T GO TO THE DR. ABOUT THIS, BUT THERE IS A SLIGHT DENT
ON THE TOP OF MY SCULL. SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN GETTING AN INSTANT HEADACHE,
WICH ONLY LASTS A FEW MINUTES. IT'S ONLY WHEN I COUGH. GOES UP THE BACK OF
MY NECK FORWARD TO MY FORHEAD,STAYS A FEW MINUTES THEN IT GOES AWAY. I
WAS WONDERING IF I SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT THIS.
If you developed the headache soon after this event it is probably
related, it sounds like you escaped without serious harm but I would
suggest that you at least see a doctor in order to have a skull X-ray
