Yeah, I reckon I'll go see the medicine man tomorrow. It was just a weird feeling, and I have eaten it in worse waves plenty of times, but never really had that daze afterwards until now.
I can't imagine going through that ordeal on a big swell, when you need to be alert and quick. I guess that's what happens when we read about people drowning while playing in waves. You just are helpless.
stay out of the water for a little and dont do anyhting where you can hit your head. last year on the first day of football camp in college they made us watch a movie on second impact syndrome. its serious and scary sh**! be careful and get better fast. i feel for you
I had a very mild one snowboarding a couple years ago. I distinctly remember the feeling of my brain smacking against my skull. I felt all funky for the rest of the day and actually better the next morning. Anyway, may have been hard to detect that feeling since it sounds like you were ragdolled a bit..
sounds like "closed head trauma", technical term for a rotational injury, your brain can slam against the inside of your skull - DEF can be serious (bleeding, hematoma) - don't play around with it - gat it checked out!
