Head Injury? Update and more questions, post #29/page 2

My 13 year old was snowboarding the terrain park, fell of a box, and hit his head on the metal rim. He says he didn't lose consciousness, but I wasn't there to see the accident. Fortunately he was wearing a helmet, as I imagine it could have been a disaster otherwise. However he's still very sore on that side of his head and he says his head is throbbing.

I called the nurse hotline for my insurance and they said, give him Tylenol, watch him, wake him every 2 hours, but don't bring him in to the ER unless he vomits, has double vision or the headache gets dramatically worse.

Now, I'm regretting calling them. I feel as though I'd feel better taking him to Urgent Care at least, but now that I've been specifically told not to, I imagine my insurance won't cover it.

Am I being crazy to think about taking him in? Would you?
