Okay so about 6 hours ago I went into the shower and I somehow fell but I remember not losing consciousness because I remember getting back up right away and going into my room but my head felt pretty weird but I wasn't dizzy I could easily walk but on the right side of my head it hurts. I put ice and it helped a bit then I put some more ice and helped but I haven't vomitted or anything just the right side of my head hurts in one spot. I have not slept at all yet but I'm afraid to sleep and then I won't wake up..

Lemia, we're a sex and relationships education site, not general health, so this is not a thing we're trained to help you with.

Head injuries are not things to take chances with, so any time you hit or hurt your head and you're not sure if you're ok, or your head still hurts some hours later, the best thing to do is get checked immediately with a doctor or at an ER, for your health and your peace of mind.

Any time you're asking "will I die?", what you need is immediate in-person healthcare, not a messageboard. That's also not a question that is fair to ask us, because we are not a crisis helpline.

Hi Lemia,

This isn't a sexual health question but it does sound like you have been concussed. I couldn't say what a certain pain in a certain location indicates. So I would seek something a bit more medical if I were you. Calling a friend can also be a useful move so that you have someone to help you.

All the best.
