Hi Faith53. You need to contact your physician now. For gosh sakes, don’t lie down and go to sleep, you have classic symptoms of a concussion.

I hope you are at the doc right now. I had a concussion once. They can be very dangerous. They always say, don’t sleep if you think you may have a concussion. Dizziness, wooziness, etc. are classic symptoms. This is one time that I would probably not wait for a doctor’s office to open, but would go through a walk-thru clinic or maybe even the ER.

Hi Faith 53. Yeah, I know, the cobbler’s kids have no shoes. I’m glad you got diagnosed and treated.

The only missing symptom you had was that you were not having stomach troubles, i.e. vomiting. I forgot to mention that, I’m glad you are on the road to recovery. Do you ever consult the Merck Manual? As an independent med tech those are the best references, short of a computer, for guidence. Now my secret is out.
