About 2 to 3 months ago I got into a nasty car accident. I broke two of my ribs and had a concussion. I had two cuts on the back of my head but the part that had me worried was a place where I had hit my forehead was indented almost an inch. They did a CT scan and it showed nothing. The intention has gone away but even now it is sore and hurts to the touch. Should I be worried about this? it is on the upper right section of my forehead about where my hair line is. I noticed that my sleeping has gotten a bit off pattern and my anxiety had gotten worse but I don’t know if that’s just me getting over the accident. Thank you.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This pain sometimes persist for one year. Its usually due to PTSD. Start anxiolytics and SSRI to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
