can i have a concussion from hitting my head hard on a table?
i have a knot on the back of my head and it looks kind-of like a blood blister
you can get a concussion that way but unless you hit it really hard it's doubtful. the knot on your head if that's where you hit it is probably a bruise but one never knows.
You could get a concussion that way. What symptoms did you have? The symptoms don't necessarily have to start right away, it could be a day or two later, sometimes a week. However, most common would be within 48 hrs. Your chances are much greater if you have had a concussion prior as well. So if you know of any prior concussions it is more likely and I would go see a doctor. Any worry about having one I would go see a doctor. It's not something to take lightly. You can email me if you would like. I'm happy to help in any way. I've had multiple concussions so I'm used to the signs and symptoms plus know how to go about getting some help. Hope you are okay! :-) Jess
I am kind of late answering for this to be of use, but I presume you have had an x-ray or a scan of your head? You could have a fracture, however small. Get it checked out. An x-ray will reveal if anything is wrong. I hope not. Take care, and avoid hitting tables with your head. Nasty things, tables.
Yes you can. There are many ways we can hit our head that may cause a concussion. Read about the signs and symptoms here. Good luck.
You cannot hit your head on the table, although if the potential occurence becomes a happening, then the answer is yes. See a doctor immediately if you think you may have a concussion.
