Totally worth mentioning, you could have a bit of a concussion.

Concussions usually go away on their own (within, say, 3 days - 2 weeks, depending on severity), but always worth getting something like that noted on your medical records in case it causes problems in the future.

It could just be that it was a heavy padlock and it hit you in just the wrong way and it's hurting as it's healing (like how some deep cuts ache as they heal), but, best be on the safe side. I think you should say something, then, even if it turns out to be nothing, you at least have peace of mind.

Maybe irrelevant question... but how did you just get hit by a padlock on the head?


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

Haha, that's what I want to know.
But X-Rays and MRI's are painless, they take only 5 minutes to half an hour and are not that daunting. It would be a good idea to make sure there is no pressure in your brain or anything.

Good luck,
Jay.

Well at college I'm doing an animal care course and on the farm there are lockers one of my friends was putting her stuff in her lock witch is right at the top and mine is underneither her but right at the bottom which is about 3 things down. Besically she dropped it on my head. Its quite a heavy one but it was luck because just before she dropped a steel toe cap boot on someone foot.
