    Fell on my butt and scared I have a concussion!

    I was cross country skiing and fell a few times on my butt. I never hit my head but was wondering if I couldíve internally hit my head or something and had a concussion? I have a bit of a headache today but could also be because I didnít sleep well. My eyes also feel strained.

    If you didn't hit your head you can't have concussion.

    See how you feel tomorrow but I see no reason for concern.

    I don't know about the headache, but if you experience any tailbone problems or spine/neck problems, you might want to see a doctor about it. Years ago I fell on my ass a couple of times and not long after that ended up with brachial plexus injuries because I also suffered the impact with my arms/elbows.

    If you fell on your butt hard enough to give you a concussion, you would have several broken bones and be unable to walk.

    I'm now on the lookout for "I've got a lump on my nob, could it be a brain tumour" for my bingo card.

    On a serious note though OP falling on your bum can make you feel a sick for a short time. It's probably the safest place to fall on though as it houses the biggest and most powerful muscles in the body.
