I recently experienced a fall and hairline fracture of the skull; I'm wondering how long it takes to heal and if anyone else has a story to share about this? My main symptoms that I continue to experience is vertigo. I've not been able to return to work or even drive yet. It's only been a couple of weeks, but I'm anxious for it to "go away!"

You're absolutely right-that is exactly what happened. I am now instructed to continue this maneuver daily x 3 until it repositions. I'll also be receiving rehab to double check everything. Thanks for your answer.
You're welcome. It can be hard to diagnose vertigo, I'm glad you have an answer, and a plan of action. Wishing you a good recovery.
Thnx-mine was a back head frax to skull. It actually came about when a patient shoved me backwards, I hit the floor, and she jumped on me attempting to strangle me. A bit traumatic, besides the skull fracture. Thanks.
I am saddened of the how and the trauma of the experience Denise. Maybe more there than the what of the head. I dun'no. Association(s) may play with recall and such. Sometimes sensations are recalled and not actual. No space with comment to comment.
Lisa-thanks so much for sharing your exper. I know my head will heal with time, & patience is a must. I'm not affected if I read, but can relate to the difficulty you exper. For a week I could not recall words I wanted to say.
