Posting this as brain injuries can happen without loss of consciousness. Please pay attention to how you feel for some time after an 'emergency dismount' and make sure to tell your friends to keep an eye on you as well! http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/08/health...html?hpt=hp_c1
Some days the best thing about my job is that the chair spins.
I've occasionally if all my head knocks haven't contributed to my often feeling off-kilter, etc. Only once been concussed (and saw a doctor that time) but not having health insurance, or money to pay the hundreds of $$$$ demanded by ERs just to look at you, who knows? Never have suffered headaches even after head knocks, and I see OK, and never have weird episodes ...

Back in the day it just wasn't an issue. I can remember cutting myself badly in the '80's and fainting and whacking the back of my head on the concrete floor, so badly I split the skin. The cut and the stitches got all the attention, they didn't even ask about my head, and I went back to work a day later just like I was told to.
Weenie me for having a headache and wanting another day off!
