I was recently struck in the region near the carotid
Patient :I was recently struck in the region near the carotid artery. I didn't feel dizzy or faint but I had a mini panic attack. I was struck with my own finger when o was startled I felt a strong pinching sensation for a moment or so but it isn't very sore now (this was nearly 10 hrs ago) but I heard your artery could corrode over the next few days causing a fatal heart attack... Should I be worried
