Bleeding from nose after head being hit. Any head injury?

Hi, earlier today I threw my head back thinking there was a pillow behind me but instead I knocked the back of my head against the wall. It was really loud, my mum heard it from downstairs. It hurt a lot but only for the first few minutes. Later on when in work my nose started bleeding . It wasnt a lot and it wasnt flowing but it just worried me a bit because I never get nosebleeds. My head is a little sore but nothing major and slight headaches are quite normal for me. Do you think the nosebleed and the knock are connected? And if so what should I do?

Dear Rachelhewitt, hello.
Head injury often result in nasal bleed if basilar fracture of skull occurs. Headache persists for few days to weeks. It is good that nasal bleed stopped immeditely. You can have a X-Ray skull done to remove any doubt. Give proper rest to your body.
