So I woke up this morning and came downstairs and my DH was like 'oh my god what happened to your head?'
I went to the mirror and I have dent in my head ?!?
It wasn't there last night and I have no recollection of banging it. It's a tiny bit tender to touch but nothing major and there's no bruising or cuts. Has this ever happened to anyone before? What could it be?
Dr google says it's aliens so that's helpful.

is it just a bruise giving the impression of a dent and not an actual dent?

It's really hard to tell without a before and after photo!

Feels like a dent into the skull but it could be a swelling I suppose.

It's 100% a dent, you can really feel it.

Go to the doctors.

I think you should get that looked at Max.

I'd be making a drs appt, if that was me. Do you feel ok?

Doctors appointment

I would ring 111 and see what they say, I'm always over cautious with anything to do with the heads in case something is going on internally.

No idea, but surely anything that resembles unexplained, sudden dent and/or swelling of the head you go the doctor immediately?

This is what my forehead usually looks like.

If there is no reason for it (e.g. Injury) then I would call for a dr appointment

Weird. Dr google doesn't bring up anything too scary... Vitamin deficiency? But I'd be wanting a GP appt to be seen quite quickly for further reassurance. Your skull is kind of vital after all...
do let us know how you get on!

MoonfaceAndSilky Mon 20-Mar-17 09:09:40

confused I would go to the doctors.

Maxwellthecat Mon 20-Mar-17 09:10:46

I've got a dr appointment this morning about something unrelated, I shall bring it up then.

Definitely aliens 👽

Google says this is probably dehydration. You may have a dent anyway in your skull that is harmless, but that is not normally visible, but dehydration has shown it up. I can't find anything worrying on google, but good idea to see your Dr anyway.

I found dents in my head on holiday, they were from where my sunglasses rested on my head! Do you wear any jewellery in bed like a Fitbit? You could have laid with it against your face? Any chance it could be something like that?

Maxwellthecat Mon 20-Mar-17 09:18:54

Oh I do wear a Fitbit to bed! I wonder if it's that.

I discovered a dent in the front of my thigh once

Took me a while to click that is was from leaning on the dressing table as I dried my hair

AnyFucker Mon 20-Mar-17 09:19:46

Of course I convinced myself I had a rare muscle tumour

Mrsfrumble Mon 20-Mar-17 09:21:01

Yikes! Definitely mention that to the doctor!

You have incredible eyelashes by the way...
