Question

 

 

 

Hi,

3 Days ago I fainted and hit my head on the floor. I was immediately attended by doctors both in company's clinic and hospital and both result are alright.

No problem in blood pressure, liver,heat blood count and body movements.

However, on my 4th day, while doing my work, I suddenly experienced double vision for about 30seconds followed by lightheadedness.

Is it something serious?

Thanks

Thanks for your Question
 

It can be a sign of Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) which is also called mini-stroke. With a TIA, the symptoms are transient and go completely within 24 hours. One of the symptoms is loss of vision or double vision for few minutes or hours.
 
One of cause of it is blood clot which can be caused by many causes and one of them is head and neck trauma.
 
I would recommend that you visit your doctor to do full check-up.
