    Hit my head a year ago, still hurts

    In August 2003 I hit the back of my head on my sink (leaning over, cleaning floor). It hurt all day (perhaps even had a slight consussion), then I was ok...except for the occassional pain and tenderness for a few weeks. I've noticed since then however then whenever I put pressure on the spot, ie scratch that area of my head, etc, I become a bit dizzy for 10-15 minutes, then it goes away. Btw, I never got it looked at.

    Could my skull have cracked and never healed??

    You should ask your physician to examine this area. Do you have a soft area or fluid collection under your scalp? It is not unusual to have tenderness at a place where you had a significant bone bruise for a long time. If you had a skull fracture, it would have healed by now.

    I agree. If at all possible have it looked at by a doctor. Hope it turns out to be ok.

    No, there's no fluid there and it seems hard like the rest of my head *grin*. I'll have my dr. look at it.
