My trunk lid fell on my head. It hurts really bad and left a large welt on my right side of my head. I am wanting to sleep. I feel dizzy. Should I sleep? I tried ice but it makes it hurt worse. I took 2 aspirin. What should I do? Should I get an x-ray? My insurance just expired. My head took the weight of the trunk and my shoulders and back crushed down a little from the weight and now I can't stand up straight. I have to work Monday. What should I do?
I think it would be alright to sleep and I do not believe you need an x-ray. A trunk lib coming down on your head although painful, in most cases should not cause any major trauma. Keep taking some type of pain and try and use a cold compress to help with the welt.
