Default Bumped head on metal lamp shade

Hi all,

I walked into a suspended metal lampshade the other day and it's triggered symptoms.

It wasn't a hard impact, I was walking fairly slowly back to a breakfast table and the lampshade moved on impact.

I had a dull headache all day, felt tired a few hours later and didn't feel right in work the next day. I felt really fatigued on the way home.

A head-injury advice line I use are sure it's an anxiety response, but I'm not convinced.

Today I went to the supermarket and my head felt really swimmy at the self-service checkout. I almost had a car accident on the way home at an unfamiliar road-junction.

I was unable to go to work yesterday due to a mild virus and am wondering whether this is contributing.

I just can't get past the fact that I've walked into what is basically a suspended, metal bowl of at least 1kg.

I agree. Anxiety response. A startle triggered the response.

As I have asked many times before in these situations.

What does it matter how the head bump is defined?

What would different definitions of the bump mean to you for tomorrow or next week or next month or next year?
