When I was sitting against a ledge my younger fell on my head
Patient :When I was sitting against a ledge my younger fell on of my head and I straight away had pain in my neck, and so I lay down on the ground and the pain travelled lower, now I have a heavy and tight feeling in my head and slight pain in the centre of my back, what do I do ?
Thank you for writing to us.
Here is a list of possible causes:
Soft tissue injury
Here are a few things you can try for the pain:
Rest the neck and head. Do not move it much
Ice the area for 15 mins every hour
Massage the area and use a little bit of heat as well
Use Paracetamol and Ibuprofen to help you reduce the swelling.
If you do not feel better after 3 days, please see a Doctor.
All the best.
