Car accident head pains

I was involved in a 44 car pileup a week ago my car was totalled out. I refused medical attention on site I think I was in shock. Every single airbag deployed. My seat was knocked back. I can remember being hit by a car so hard it went partially under my vehicle. Thats when all my airbags deployed. then like a chain reactions another car hits him and he hits into me again. This goes on 4 atleast 5 cars. I didnt feel much then all i seen was a few burns from the airbags and a scratch. I know i was in shock. When I got home i started feeling pain in my knee and pain in my ankle. The next day I experienced severe neck pain for about 2 days. then all was fine. Now for the past 2 days I am experiencing neck pain where it feels like its to much to lift my head. Also the inside of my head feels like there is a catch in it. I have been really angry and having problems remembering what I am doing. Inside my head it feels like I am bleeding, like my brain is being squeezed and it feels like its laying against my head. Its my left side towards the back. this goes on and doesnt really let up. I feel alot of pressure by my nose too.

Hi there, Michelle here...

I am so sorry to hear you were involved in such a horrific car wreck. Because a pileup of this nature is just that horrific. It is normal and common to refuse medical attention at the site of the accident, happens all the time, and is simply a result of the shock. It has no bearing on how seriously injured you are.

And make no mistake, you are very injured and you need treatment right now. Today. If you were my family member, I would take you to the ER right now. The description of feeling like your head bleeding, a sense of having your brain squeezed, is very serious description and you need to have this checked.

Please, call a friend and go to the ER right now.

I am not trying to be an alarmist, but those descriptions are not typical and you must have them evaluated right away.

When you get to the ER tell them exactly what you wrote me, you feel like your brain is being squeezed, and you feel like your brain is bleeding. Please go now. If you don't have a friend to take you, then you can call a taxi.

Please use the comment form to write me what the doc says, if you have time.... I actually will write more later after
I post this, but I really want you to please to to the ER right away.

Sincerely, M.
