Comment from: 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: February 11

I fell and hit my head on a cement floor ice was applied, but a huge goose egg formed, and my blood pressure went sky high. I was carried by ambulance to our local hospital. I was given a scat test, and no blood was bleeding in my brain. But I continued to have severe pain and blood pressure soaring. So I was given several pain medications to help with the pain and bring down my pressure. After about five hours in ER, I was released, but my pressure was still above normal when I left the hospital. And I am concerned whether my heart could have been injured due to the extremely high pressure. I am 87, but feeling all right since I fell.

I was in my bedroom, and fell hard onto the floor, and went down on my left eye. I even got a rug burn from it. I did not go to the hospital, and all I have done since is sleep. I hit my eyebrow bone real hard.
