Have you got a CT scan of the head done?

User : I have not had a CT Scan yet.
User : i know basketballs arent that hard of objects, but im wondering what is the worst this could be?
User : I have also had nausea along the lines with these headaches, but the nausea came in at a later date.
Doctor : Head aches can occur because of internal injury to the brain.
The baseket ball is ont that hard to cause such an injury.'

But if your headaches are persisting then it is better to rule out the possibility of internal injury.
