Preface: I have seen a doctor twice and going (again) tomorrow morning. This is not seeking medical advice but rather looking to see if there are folks who have experienced similar.
About 2 weeks ago, I crashed while moving over to avoid a car. Front wheel hit some sand and turned sideways so I ended up rotating and landing/siding on my right side. Nothing major overall, pretty much shredded the side of my skin/clothes from the shoes to the shoulder. Helmet had a minor scratch about an inch or two in size. I got up immediately and then rode the next 45 minutes home.
I went to urgent care because I thought my thumb was maybe broken but hand just needed a brace with no bone injury. I noted a minor headache and doc told me to take it easy on screens for a couple of days and pain-meds, etc. Didn’t do any concussion tests. Went back to a doc the next week and said I still had some headaches despite avoiding screens and activity since then. Doc then said she figured I had a mild concussion and to avoid screens as much as possible.
It’s been almost a week since and continuing to have headaches. I have a history of migraines/headaches and never had any success using medications to help them. Sleeping obviously helps but otherwise it doesn’t seem like they correlate to anything else. They pretty much start the minute I wake up and then fluctuate throughout the day. I also have a really bad history of sinus issues and the headaches are largely frontal area.
Has anyone had an experience where they had something like this where they may have crashed which triggered underlying headache issues? I’m trying to discern if they’re a sustained concussion or if they’re triggered essentially, as I have no other symptoms of concussion to any degree. Again, this is not asking for medical advice. I’ll stick to the doc for that.
