    7 years ago when I was 13 got hit by a car on the way to school. I didn't go to the hospital I just got up and walked to school. I didn't want anyone to know

    I told my gf this and she said to at least get a check up for it just to be safe.

    does it seem like a waste of time or no?

    Worth at least mentioning it when you do see a doctor for anything else. If it wasn't a big incident and you were fine walking to school after it's probably fine and not done any damage. It can be helpful fr doctors to know things like that even if they ahven't had a noticable effect though so do just mention it at some point even if you don't make an appointment for it.
    If you have any issues like aches, pains or reduced movement since the incident though Iwould suggest you make an appointment about it.

      IIRC, there are cases where injuries years ago stay hidden until suddenly they cause big problems. Go to the doctors just to be safe.

      I'd say if you don't have any noticeable weakness, pain, discomfort etc then you're probably fine. I doubt a GP is going to pick anything up if you're 100% symptom free, you'd just be wasting an appointment. Obviously if you have any pain or other symptoms you should mention it as relevant background information but your GP isn't going to give you a bunch of scans etc to check for any minor problems which aren't affecting you.
