Hi Howard,
I recommend a repeat CT scan. The first scan may not have shown anything because the bleed was too small. Since you have symptoms now it is possible that if there is a bleed it will be more visible. Blood thinners can aggrevate concussion by causing a bleed.
Thank you for using Allexperts.
