Blood Loss From Nasty Fall Causing Extreme Thirst And Headache?

Blood Loss From Nasty Fall Causing Extreme Thirst And Headache?

Hi there. I took a nasty fall the other day that resulted in a great deal of blood loss from gashes on my forehead (blood was just dripping everywhere). I read that substantial blood loss can result in extreme thirst. Could that account for why I've been so thirsty since the fall? Also, can blood loss lead to headaches?

Have you been to a physician? If you hit your head it’s possible you have an internal bleed and could definitley explain a headache! I would say you should definitely seek medical care as soon as possible. They can determine if you need a CT.

Queen of brain injury… what’s the question? 😂 Sorry, my life is a comedy. But TBI is not. A neurologist can help but keep in mind… an MRI IS FUZZY (unless things have changed). They are excellent to make sure there are no masses, bleeds, etc. So when making your decision of what to do… you might check out Cerescan.com.

I agree sounds like a concussion and you could have something else going on from hitting your head get checked out ASAP!

You said it was a nasty fall and there was blood everywhere from your forehead. I also read about your thirst and headache. I'm not a professional but i strongly feel that you really should see a doctor asap.
Best Wishes to you.

Thank you so much for your response. I was assessed at the local hospital, and they don't think there's any internal bleeding. I do have an appointment to see my doctor though, and will discuss these with her.
