if your injured, and its that bad you really should see a doctor. If they don't take you, and you do have a brain injury, you could actually die and have a brain bleed. Internal injuries are very serious. So really, if it gets worse, or you get a worse head ache in the next 10-30 minutes i'd call 911.

If they won't take you and it's a head injury you need to call 911.

You can call 911 on your own. I encourage you to do this.

Hey there,

With any head injury it is very important that you seek medical advice. There''s no nice way to put it, head injuries can cause brain damage and death. The sooner you seek medical attention the better.

Take care.

Call an ambulance and explain. Even if your parents think you did it on purpose, they should be able to see that you're injured and you need medical attention. It certainly sounds like you should be in ER if you're dizzy and bleeding. Take care.
