I was heavily in toxicated when I fell and hit my head 2 days ago - I fell ear first which bled a lot. I wasn't sick or confused etc but very sore. I went to a walk in clinic today and they said I will be fine and it'll heal naturally. I only slept for 4 hours last night and now I can't sleep at all again. Every time I fall asleep I jolt awake as if my body doesn't want me to be asleep. Please can someone help? I feel so irritable and anxious, I can't even pin point want about right now

Pics of injury too

The jolt is normal, its part of your muscles relaxing for sleep.

Unless your symptoms have worsened since being seen in the walk in clinic , ie if youre vomiting, dizzy, have head pain etc then you should be ok to wait until tomorrow to see Dr .

If you have any discharge coming from inside your ear I would ring 111.

@IfOnlyOurEyesSawSouls thanks. The jolt wakes me up though and then I can't go back to sleep, I've been awake almost 24 hours. I called 111 earlier which is how I got a clinic appt. I'm just desperate for sleep can't cope

You have 3 threads on this OP, calm downgrin

I have health anxiety too so I worry way to much about minor things. I know how scary it is though so I hope you're feeling less anxious now.

As long as you've been seen by a medical professional and have no lasting effects I'm sure you're fine.

Try not to worry, get some sleep.

The best thing for me with helping my anxiety was to stop drinking by the way, really calms you down. I didn't used to get drunk regularly but one glass of wine would make me super anxious and nauseas!

@nighttimebrowser thanks appreciate it. I guess I was just desperate for someone to see and notice my posts so that I could get helpful responses / advice (which I have done so thanks)

Yes the jolt does wake some people up - it's nothing to do with your injury.
