Ouch my head... and every other part of my body

Tried to do a BS 3 yesterday, but I rotated a bit too early. Tail of my board ended up catching the take off and I flew through the air backwards landing on my head/shoulder? and for some reason my back leg and groin hurt too *sigh*

felt kinda kind of nauseous and pukey after the slam (didn't puke though). didn't have any memory loss but it took me a while to piece stuff together... i was worried about concussions, but i'm feeling ok today... just really really groggy...

any head experts here? the nausea and pukey feeling kinda freaked me out yesterday

Agreed. It'll happen.

I might sound like a dick, but don't ask for opinions on the internet. Go to the doctor they can tell you how serious it is and will tell you what to do. It is your noggin after all and you only have one brain. Don't piss it away.

Sure sounds like a concussion. You should go see a doctor. Chances are that you can just go along fine, but there is that other chance things could go horribly wrong for you.

Go into your bathroom and turn your lights off. Wait a minute and then turn them back on and see how much your pupils dilate. If they stay really large then you definitely have a concussion. It's not an ideal, fool proof method but that's what I use to tell.

Agreed on the concussion. Every one I've had I get the pukey (sometimes end up worshiping the porcelain god). Always a good idea to see a doc after one just to be sure there's not more going on up in the noggin.
