I hit my head and I don't know if I have a concussion or not.
When I was at work today a box full of bags fell and hit me on the top of my head. It weighed about 25 lb and I almost blacked out for just a second. I only cried out of shock, I finished working fine but now I am worried because my heck and back hurts really bad, and while I was at work I could have sworn that my pupils were unequal but I may have been just seeing things because I asked several people and most couldn't see that. There is no bump on my head but I have a headache and I think my vision is blurrier than normal. Is this cause for concern? I have been hit harder and been fine.
I'd have it checked out, TahoeDoc might peruse these pages and weigh in, but the fact that you are now showing some neuro signs (headache, pupils (?) neck and bad pain), I think I'd err on the side of caution. Granted you only 'almost blacked out' but the weekend is coming and I'd get it checked out.
I'm thinking the pupils was just my imagination although I could have sworn one was bigger, they are normal now. But yes I'm thinking the impact is why my back hurts...
Virginia, I also forgot to say that I'm a nurse and worked for some time in neurosurgery.

Should MLB pitchers be required to wear helmets?Base coaches are required to wear helmets however, pitchers are considerably closer to the hitter after they have delivered the pitch and are not required to wear helmets. Is this logical?
