    For the last few days, I resorted to hitting my head. Over and over. Usually with my fists until I go a bit crossed eye. Well I just got done banging my head against the medal of my futon. I've been retrying this entry about five times now, maybe more. My fingers don't function well, my head feels like it weights a ton. My vision is kinda grey. Idk whats wrong.

    i think a bruise or a bump. no bleeding. i think i just got a nasty headache. i got told you have to shake your brain to get a concussion.

    I'd get checked out anyway. Avoid falling asleep until then.

    concussion basically means your brain has swelled which can be caused by anything hitting your head

    You need to get it checked out if you have a nasty headache and a bruise/lump

    I've had concussion before and it deffiantly sounds like thats what you have, it doesn't have to be a hard knock to cause a concussion, a suddenly shake of the head can cause one. If you've had these symptoms for a few days now then i would seriously urge you to get it checked out as consussion can cause further complications. If you are reluctant to getting it checked out then maybe try applying some ice to the bruise if you haven't already to reduce the swelling and hopefully reduce your symptoms.

    Hope you feel alot better soon :hug:

    the fact that you see gray and can't use your fingers very well clearly indicates that your brain did a ''coup-contre-coup'', AKA your brain moved within the skull, hitting the back (thus, your vision part of the brain) and the front (the ''motor'' part of the brain).
    With these symptoms, I would strongly advise you to go see a doctor. In rare occasions, you can get major swelling in the brain caused by second impact

    Here's the Wiki definition of this:

    Second-impact syndrome, in which the brain swells dangerously after a minor blow, may occur in very rare cases. The condition may develop in people who receive a second blow days or weeks after an initial concussion, before its symptoms have gone away. No one is certain of the cause of this often fatal complication, but it is commonly thought that the swelling occurs because the brain's arterioles lose the ability to regulate their diameter, causing a loss of control over cerebral blood flow. As the brain swells, intracranial pressure rapidly rises. The brain can herniate, and the brain stem can fail within five minutes. Except in boxing, all cases have occurred in athletes under age 20.

    Therefore, try not to bang your head anymore please!
