I bent over and coming back up I whacked the right side of my head on the sharp edge of a metal bench. It hurt for about 2 minutes, but I had no other symptoms. This was about 5 hours ago. Then just about 30 minutes ago I managed to hit the front of my head 2 more times against a hard metal pole as I was leaning forward to pick up something.
Concerned about hitting my head three times in one day, I decided to search the old googlewebs and find out when to seek medical attention after bumping your head. Subsequently I was freaked out by the story of natasha richardson dieing from an epidural hematoma after a minor fall on a beginner ski slope. Apparently she didnt have any symptoms at first, and the fall was minor on soft snow not like she hit a tree or anything hard. How could such an insignificant fall have killed her?
How hard do you have to hit your head to cause an epidural hematoma? I dont have any symptoms at the moment such as headache, nasuea, dizzyness, confusion drowsiness or loss of consciousness. Still my anxiety has latched on making me terrified of dying of brain trauma suddenly from a relatively minor head bump.
