Hi, Shiggles, and welcome!  We don't have any forums on HealingWell that cover accident-type things.  I think you should see a doctor.  Any trauma to the head could spell big problems.  Please get it checked out.  It might only be something like traumatized nerves causing the problem but I'm not a doctor and I don't think you should fool around with this.  Remember the actress that fell while skiing and hit her head?  She ended up passing on because she thought she was fine.  I don't mean to frighten you but I also don't want to make light of a head injury.
Please let us know what you find out.  We really do care.

I agree - see doctor! The numbness could be from swelling on the brain. I would expect any head injury that bad to cause some numbness, but anything that lasts for more than a few hours is serious. See a doctor, then post to let us know you are okay!
