I was in a fight. I had bruises and bumps on both sides of my head. I didn’t hurt the inside of my head for about 5 weeks. My head feels under a lot of pressure since Saturday. It’s tuesday. Also, I am breathing and putting my hand on my nose and squeezing it shut. Not often I am stopped doing it. I had walk up yawning and shacking in my room. I was yawning a lot today but also bored. My arms and legs were moving during the yawn. I did it on saturday too. This is about the time I remember starting to squeeze my nose. Do you think I developed epilepsy? Will this pass on its own? How important to get to the doctor? My head flared up a little too today.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe do not suggest epilepsy. Visit your doctor/healthcare provider for thorough examination of your head injury. Go ahead with proper examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause, and get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by your examination findings and evaluation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.
