  • I think you really should see a DR. If money is an issue, try to find a free clinic in your area.
    If not, I'd say to take some tylenol- maybe ibuprofen would be better for a headache.

    I think it should be checked out. In the mean time drink a caffeinated drink, and take some
    medicine for your headache. A nap will also help. Feel better

  • ER. Would you rather pay a hospital bill or have serious complications from a head injury? People DIE from head injuries that they don't get checked out. Sorry, but I would get checked out and worry about the bill later. As a matter of fact, I have done that.

  • chances are it is nothing... but would you want to risk that it IS something and you do nothing about it? find a free clinic in your area, or call a walk in clinic and see what they recommend you do...
