Headaches for two days after a crash

Recommended Posts

1st dumb move on the day of the crash: Instead of using my "expensive" Trooper helmet, I used my $80 helmet because I didn't want the chance of scratching my new Trooper helmet.

2nd dumb move that led to the crash: I didn't gas it hard on the landing to soften the blows......

The crash was on Tuesday at the San Jose Fairground track. Now, it's thursday and I'm still filling a little headache.

I guess I need another 500mg Ibuprofen.

That's what it is. Mild concussion. Cool out for a while, otherwise you could end up getting all out-of-sorts while riding and end up crashing even harder. Then you wouldn't be in any better shape than James Stewart! :banghead:

Sorry to hear about the concussion, west. Have you thought about going to the doc for a quick check? Hey, do you have any pointers to info about the SJ Fairgrounds MX track? I've been wanting to check it out. Thanks, -Mike-

Go to the DOCTOR!

When you call them and tell them that you've had a head-ache for 2-days after an "Impact"...they'll either have you come in Immediately or tell you to go to the Emergency Room!

Good Luck!

Treatment

The treatment for a concussion is usually to watch the person closely for any change in level of consciousness. The person may need to stay in the hospital for close observation. Surgery is usually not necessary. Headache and dizziness are common, but if the headache persists or becomes severe, it is best to seek medical attention.

Post-concussion syndrome may occur in some people. The syndrome generally consists of a persistent headache, dizziness, irritability, memory changes and vision changes. The person may seem overly emotional or unable to control their emotions. Some people experience unexplained depression. Difficulty with concentration or problems with thinking and planning ahead also are reported. Symptoms may begin weeks or even months after the initial injury. Although the symptoms generally resolve over time, some people need a rehabilitation specialist to oversee a program for recovery.

It is important to keep in mind that recovery from a traumatic brain injury can be very slow. Sometimes several days can go by without seeing any major visible change. This is not unusual, and it is best to ask the health-care providers if any changes have occurred. It is also important to try to get enough rest and nutrition while waiting for the patient to recover. It is normal to feel frustrated, overwhelmed, lonely and worried. Sometimes a friend, or support group can help. Before your stress gets out of control, tell someone who can help.

I got knocked out a couple of months ago and I didn't even know where I was or anything. so I got a brain scan and they said I didn"t even get a concusion!! their machin must be messed up or something.

you'll be cool. That boxer that died recently died because his brain was bleeding, as long as you don't have that you will be ok. That is what they look for in a brain scan. If the headaches seem to be getting worse you better go in asap.

Good Luck

It sounds like a mild concusion, but don't start racing to soon you risk ending up with a permanent headache 🤣

2 month ago I had a big crash, I was in the hospital for 7 days and the first 2 days I have no memory from at all :banghead:

Now that it's 2 month later, I still get a headache very easy

Never - never - never use a crappy helmet :banghead:🤣🤣

Well, I think I'm better now because I've just gone through the entire issue of Transworld Motocross (Nov 05). I was planning to ride today at the same track but I'm going to take a few more days off from riding (until Sunday).

By the way, the San Jose track is loaded with fast riders. They don't have an official web site for this track. I've even offered to create a web site for them free but they never responded. Try http://www.cmaracing.com/ but the site sucks as far as giving info about the San Jose track. Basically, practices are Tuesday and Thursday between 3pm and 8pm. I have no idea about Sat and Sun. It costs $20. There are two 80 foot tabletops and a rhythm section that is about 120 feet in length. It's a nice track but way too many riders. Plus, they are very aggressive. I don't jump the 2nd tabletop because it's a blind jump and no flaggers at that jump.
