Hi, I fell on my eyebrow 5 days ago and got 7 stitches. No concussion, no fracture luckily. Doctors told me if there was no major dizziness (among other things) in first 36 hours that I'm fine. Since day 3, I wake up in the morning feeling a bit lightheaded/dizzy. It comes and goes throughout the day, it is minor though. Anyone experience this, know why it's happening, or how long it will last? Could it just be because my equilibrium is off, cause one side of my face is swollen/bruised?
Thank you much.

Go back to the doctor and get checked just in case. Head injuries are nothing to mess around with.

well the emergency room people weren't very concerned or talkative, so I did go to my Dr's office on Tuesday. They took the x-ray and assured me if there was anything wrong, in the first 24 hours I would have had a major headache or nausea or been so dizzy I couldn't walk. I'm not lightheaded all the time, just mainly in the mornings. Just wonder if anyone has dealt with a similar issue, or known someone who has.

I wonder are you on any meds for your injury?

I wonder if you have a mild concussion even though they did not say.

Are you drinking enough water eating enough sometimes when we dont feel well we dont eat or drink like we should because we just dont feel like it. Could be hypoglycemia?

Funny that the Dr had no clue as to what is causing it.

A few years ago I fell on the back of my head onto 4 inches of solid ice and blacked out for a few seconds. Holy **** did that hurt. I ended up not doing anything about it and within the next few days I started having nightmares about killing people, which is something I've never had happen before. I ended up getting cat scanned and being fine but the doctor told me its not unusual for people to have strange things happen the first few days after a head trauma injury.
