I've heard that if you take a hit to your helmet and aren't sure about the integrity of it, you can usually send it to the MFG and they will check it out for you and send it back with the results.

Might be worth contacting the MFG to see what they can do for you.

not even worth all that down time...

if you got a cheapest (-150 dollar helmet) just replace it, and if its more, you can usually tell by knowing how hard you went down, either way if you are in doubt replace it!
