Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.
Concussion is a possibility.

If the headache is peresistent or if there is loss of consciousness, persistent vomiting, seizures or imbalance while walking, get medical attention.

I hope that answers your question.
