Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure that your symptoms do not suggest any serious underlying brain injury.

It seems to be a mild head injury.

You can take ibuprofen or diclofenac for pain relief.

Please watch for the following warning symptoms:
Severe headache, repeated vomiting, double vision, decreased alertness, fits. If you develop any of these, you should go to ER and get a brain CT scan done.

Wishing you good health,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
