Flashes

My husband is an ironworker.Today another guy threw down a very heavy piece of steel by my husband from above.The steel hit my husband's finger.It might be broken.Anyway he started seeing green flashes.When he looked at the marks the steel left in the ground they were green.He said he notice the green flashes and marks would pulsate with his heartbeat.He's never had any kind of flashes before,let alone green pulsating ones.We were just wondering about this.He is 48 years old.   Thanks

sounds like it could be slight shock e.g. when you get hit on the head and you get a bit "dazed". I think the first thing you should do is get the finger checked out as steel landing on a finger is never good, while there, mention the flashes, it's always better to know there's nothing wrong then to falsely presume

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
This can be due to extreme panic created by the incident. Hitting the finger with heavy iron could have resulted in an exaggerated vagal response.  It can also be due to a head injury (did he fall because of the impact). Hence get this evaluated by a doctor and an eye specialist immediately. Take care!
