Thanks for writing to us.

Headaches are common and persist for few days to weeks after head injury. It is good that MRI report is normal which means that there is no severe injury.

Headaches can be relieved by rest and by taking pain killer like Ibuprofen one tablet twice a day after meals.

You should consult a Neurophysician if any of the following symptoms appear:-
1. Persistent headache
2. Nausea or vomiting
3. Seizures
4. Loss of memory
5. Irritability or confusion
6. Difficulty in balancing
7. Bleeding from ears or nose

You should advise her complete rest for her quick recovery.

If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Wish your daughter a speedy recovery.
