I'm going to second this; Ex-coworker of mine fell off a four wheeler 
the four weeks ago, wasn't even moving.  Hit his head on the way down.  
Got up and shrugged it off. His friends looked at him and thought he 
seemed 'funny'.  Against his wishes, they called an ambulance to check 
him out. Paramedics decided to take him to the hospital out of caution.  
Within three hours at the hospital he had a stroke and had to undergo 
emergency brain surgery to alleviate the swelling of his brain. He is 
now at a rehabilitation center.  The only reason he is alive is because 
his friends picked up on the hints below.  When it comes to stuff like 
below, err on the side of caution.
