My husband played ultimate football today, he fell on his side. He doesn't remember if he hit his head, but remembers it was loud,something cracked,and he bounced. LOL. DON'T laugh at the bounce; OK go ahead for a second.....

Anyway, his neck hurts, left side feels like it's burning,he has a headache and he is dizzy. His wrist feels like he's wearing a watch.

I think he may have whip lash. He says that is not possible. I want him to go get checked. He says let me take a asprin and sleep it off. Dude didn't even have a beer,a regular Friday night pasttime for the last 11 years.
Wtf. So it is possible to get whiplash from a fall like that,right?

DO NOT LET HIM HAVE ANY ASPIRIN OR SLEEP!! It maybe nothing but I wouldn't chance it. Take him to the ER.

Make sure the pupils are the same size when you shine the light into each eye they should become smaller.

Please do not check his eyes with a flash light unless you know what you are doing/looking for.

 My dd got a concussion once and I wouldn't play with that...not even with an adult.  I would take him in just to be safe.

 Sounds like a concussion. He should get checked out. And I didn't even think of laughing at his head bouncing. =(
