my question is, he hit my around the head with his hand/cellphone yesterday and ive had a head ache since, not sure if its anything, it didnt make me see black or anything, any ideas on if i need to see someone or not??

Hey there,

Generally whenever you get a head injury it is worth getting checked out as it can be dangerous. There's a possibility that it could be a concussion, or just a little bit of bruising and tenderness after the injury. I'm a keen supporter that you should tell someone about what he's doing, too. You could always tell your doctor or the hospital if you choose to get it checked out.

Don't hesitate to message me!
Marie.

If you get a blow to the head, the likelihood is you will have a headache.

If you experience nausia, dizziness, hot flushes or the headache carries on for more then a day then seek medical attention.

You need to see your doctor you could have a serious injury I strongly suggest you see your doctor


I was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis, it causes tumors to grow in my body on nerves,my spine,and under my skin. I have a tumor in the thalamus region of my brain. I also have heartburn,hypothyroidism and secondary adrenal insufficiency these are under control with medication.
I also have hip dysplasia and scoliosis.

If it's continuing to feel painful, and making you dizzy or anything like that then you should see a doctor. A blow to the head could cause a number of problems, and if it's not checked out it could get serious.

Take care.

Honestly, I'm a keen supporter of you telling a doctor. The severity of what he's doing is something you certainly don't deserve, and somehow this has to stop. You could even write it down if you don't feel comfortable with vocalising what happened. Could one of your friends some with you? I really think you need to get down to the hospital or to see the doctor now, since you're still not feeling good.

Take care.
Marie.
